Aimed at enhancing physical literacy among parents, the Fun to Move@JC Parent Workshop Series has been held annually since its debut in 2021. This year, the workshops were first conducted in a completely face-to-face format from March to June 2023, with nearly 140 families from 10 Project Schools participated at their children’s school.
The workshop series comprised four sessions, with each featuring a 15-minute sharing on physical activity knowledge, followed by a 60-minute parent-child activity class led by the Fun to Move coaches. During these workshops, families were engaged in various interactive activities to learn Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) using easy sport equipment, such as the mini soccer, racket, dodgebee, and fitness dice. In addition to the practical sessions, self-learning materials and online videos were developed to further support and help build parents’ confidence in nurturing their children's physical literacy. As part of the programme, all parents were asked to take part in a survey, and some of the families were invited to an interview to share their views on parental roles in children’s development of interests and habit of physical activities. These findings will serve as valuable input to family-based physical activity research.
