School holidays are a wonderful time for kids to relax. It gives them that little bit of a break before tackling the rest of the school year. Now the first few days are good, they catch up on a bit of sleep, maybe some TV they’ve missed out on and then all of a sudden they realize they have 2 whole weeks of this. Bring on the “IM BORED” statements and the tantrums about not having anything fun to do!
Here are the top 5 benefits of School Holiday Programs for children: • Health
Not only do sport directly improve health through exercise, but it also teaches kids to exercise and stay active. With childhood obesity at an all-time high, it’s essential to give kids an alternative to staying inside spending long hours online or in front of the TV. • Independence / Social skills
Children learn about equal relations as they bargain over game rules and resolve instances where the rules may be ambiguous. • Mental health
Recent research has shown that participation in sport can improve a child’s numeracy score by 8% on average and underachieving kids who regularly take part in sports activity see a 29% increase in numeracy skills. • Gain self-discipline
As children grow older they will face challenges which seem too big to overcome. Through sports, children learn about problem solving and perseverance to help them deal with the various challenges in life. • Having fun!
Parents are always looking for ways to give their children the best chance in life, but for the child it’s all about enjoyment and ending the School Holiday Program with a positive feeling.
