The "Movin' Kids" group organised by the Service Sports (Sports Department) aims to help children rediscover the joy of movement. Under the supervision of its instructors, the group offers both indoor and outdoor activities, including a range of sports and gymnastics, alternating with swimming. The team from the Service Médecine scolaire (School Health Department) also takes part in these sessions, organising regular workshops on healthy living habits and well-being.
Children are chosen for the programme based on the results of their medical screening at school.
The "Rope Skipping" programme is offered together with the Centre d'animation pédagogique et de loisirs (Creative Learning Centre – CAPEL). It is intended for children at childcare centres, as well as Cycle 3 and Cycle 4 primary school classes.
CAPEL instructors work with personnel from the Service Médecine scolaire to select acrobatic and floor exercises involving rope skipping. These are presented by the children in a showcase at the end of the course.
"Gesond Iessen – Méi bewegen"
Eat better, Move more
This programme designed for Cycle 2 pupils takes a fun and playful approach to introduce them to the food pyramid.
"Richteg akafen – Gutt iessen": the right food for a healthy and balanced diet
Eating healthier starts with smart choices in the grocery store. Pupils learn how to identify the various food groups through games, built around using all five senses.
At the end of the course, they prepare a healthy breakfast themselves.
Sex and relationships education workshops
The team from the Service Médecine scolaire offers sex and relationships education workshops for Cycle 4 pupils. The content of these workshops is developed in association with Planning Familial (family planning association).
Better health through exercise
The charity and national lottery operator Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grand-Duchesse Charlotte and the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIST) are working together to promote physical activity as a means of improving your health.
This project aims to provide comprehensive, objective and scientific information concerning the recommended therapeutic physical activities for varying illnesses, but above all to offer practical information for the public so that they may find suitable groups to help them pursue these activities.
