THE Champion Life program was launched at Falcon Primary School today .

The program delivers health, physical education and wellbeing engagement to young people.

It involves role models and students are challenged to participate in activities alone, in pairs, as a class and at home.

Falcon Primary School is the first public school to be involved in Champion Life after it was successfully trialled at Mandurah Catholic College (MCC) in 2016 and 2017.

Champion Life director of partnerships Nick Jenkins was a maths teacher at MCC for 17 years.

He is so passionate about the program he has taken a year off teaching to deliver the course to other school.

North Mandurah Primary School and some Rockingham schools have since signed up for the program.

“The aim is to promote a new generation of healthy young Australians,” Mr Jenkins said.

“Students watch role models who give tips on making good decisions.

“Our role models are inspiring and include pro athletes.

“We work with technology, not against it.”
