Fun to Move@JC, with a funding support of $97 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, aimed at enhancing children's physical literacy by helping them develop the skills, confidence and passion of movement needed to be physically active for life. Launched in 2017, this Trust-initiated project was a collaborative effort amongst The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and The Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute. Over the past six years, the team created an effective, comprehensive, and sustainable sports and physical activity model that could then be shared and widely adopted by all primary schools in Hong Kong. Resting on the three key pillars, namely, the provision of quality physical education, enhancements to home-school cooperation, and the application of information technology, the Project successfully implemented evidence-based practices at schools through the leadership of principals in fostering school and family engagement. Big data analytics and innovative tools were also developed to enhance teaching and learning in PE through objective measurement of the quality (i.e., Fundamental Movement Skill Rater) and quantity (i.e., Sport Band) of students’ physical activities, in an efficient and systematic way.
In this case study booklet, details about how these strategies and ideas were translated into impactful real-life activities and innovations to lead changes in behaviours and mindsets of students, parents and teachers are documented. Success stories from six project schools are also highlighted. We hope this publication serves as a useful guide to inform and inspire policymakers, educators, parents, and future research efforts in the realm of physical literacy.
