NUA Fit

Post Date: 20 May 19       Category

A new sporting initiative has been established at Nua.  The brainchild of our PE Department and sports prefects, the NUA Fit programme has been running for all of Term 1.  Consistently there have been about 50 students participating all term.

The programme's main aim is to help our students prepare for the winter sporting season ahead, enabling participants to improve their overall fitness and sustain themselves for longer in the sporting arena, but also in the classroom and other school environments.  NUA Fit also caters for all our young athletes, with the intention to help nurture the sporting success that exists within our school, in order to guide students to their full potential.

Above all, NUA Fit allows students to exercise in a social setting at their own pace.  Many students already enrolled in the programme have found the course productive.  Our Year 12 girls get a kick out of staying fit in preparation for the netball season ahead, and some of our most senior boys reckon its 'awesome' to be able to exercise as build-up for winter sports training.  Some of the juniors simply enjoy exercising in a collective group.

The NUA Fit programme runs from 6.30am every Monday and Wednesday morning, and runs for roughly 45 minutes, with showering facilities availabe afterward followed by a free breakfast.  NUA Fit is open to all students and staff and costs only $10.
