Children with physical literacy encompass the motivation, confidence (“want to move”), physical competence (“can move”), knowledge and understanding (“value moving”) to value, develop and maintain positive physical activity behaviours for life (“keep moving”). As PE teachers play an important role in promoting physical literacy among students, our Project is dedicated to provide professional development opportunities to inform teachers regarding the concept, and its application to support the whole-person development of students. This teacher workshop was divided into three parts: 1) Sharing on the concept of physical literacy and its integration in school PE; 2) Practical session for take-away fun activities; 3) Brief introduction and demonstration of Fun to Move Challenge Event - the first-ever student competition in fundamental movement skills among Hong Kong primary schools. The teachers were engaged in a range of activities and discussions led by Professor Ha and the Project Team.

Parents play a crucial role in influencing their children to develop an active lifestyle. In the sharing session, Professor Ha, Principal Investigator of the Project introduced the concept of Physical Literacy, while parents shared their experience in participating in the activity classes held at their school. Representatives of the school parent-teacher associations (PTAs) also exchanged views with the project team. The occasion has provided a valuable opportunity for the PTAs to explore potential collaborations with the project, thereby reaching out to more families.
Activity zones themed under ball skills, locomotor skills and partner-stretching exercises were held to give some fun ideas for the families to get moving!
