National Schools Remote Challenge
The National Schools Challenge is a team-based activity challenge. It's a fun way to engage teachers and support personnel, boost productivity and gain insight into your school staffs' physical and mental wellbeing.
The National Schools Challenge measures changes in physical and mental wellbeing across 50 days, providing actionable reports on the findings – and a bunch of fun along the way!
• Teachers have reported the highest level of occupational stress in Australia, the United Kingdom and America.
• Over half of Australian teachers report anxiety and nearly one fifth have experienced depression.
• An estimated 40 per cent of graduate teachers quit the profession within the first five years of starting.
• Challenging workplace conditions have meant teachers can be more prone to work-related stress, burnout and general psychological distress when compared to other occupations.
Education providers are charged with an important responsibility – mentoring and leading our children through to adulthood and into the workplace.
It's time to support them.
The National Schools Challenge is delivered via the state-of-the-art Moving Mindz app. It’s interactive, user-friendly and loads of fun.
There’s gamification elements and social re-enforcement to keep participants engaged and active throughout the program.
Users can sync their Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin and other health devices to easily track their steps.
The app also features fun elements like leaderboards, a virtual map and badges to collect, so that participants feel rewarded for their hard work.
Best of all, there’s a social feed for teams to share and encourage each other. Schools can also use this feed to communicate with their participants.
The Moving Mindz program is designed and backed by leading academics and underpinned by collaborative researchers from across the globe.
At the end of the challenge, your school will receive a comprehensive End of Event Report outlining findings relating to changes in the physical and mental wellbeing of participants.
This is an opportunity to demonstrate that physical and mental wellbeing is important to your school and local community. Your school will also play a leadership role in the development of research data relating to mental health in the Education Sector and Australian workplace.
Follow the lead from some of Australia’s preeminent tertiary institutions (and hundreds of companies across Australia and the US) by signing up for the inaugural National Schools Challenge.
