The PasSPORT to Health Project

Promoting Physical Activity and School SPORT

The PasSPORT to Health Project was initiated by Prof Cheryl Walter in 2010. The project centres around third year Human Movement Science students who are challenged to promote physical activity, school sport and healthy active living at disadvantaged schools in the Nelson Mandela Bay area. The project forms part of experiential learning modules in recreation and sport management.

Thus far, 24 schools have benefited from the project.  The project entails the creation of physical activity-friendly environments at schools and have included: simple court and wall markings for games, fitness circuits, small equipment, leadership camps for school prefect/leaders, sport coaching and training of coaches, the teaching of physical education and educating learners on the importance of leading an active lifestyle.
