Following a successful virtual Joy of Moving Home School Festival last summer that involved 250,000 children, PNECET is partnering with the EFL Trust and Ferrero to launch a virtual ‘Winter Games’ pack, inspiring children to get moving in the toughest months for activity levels.
The Joy of Moving programme is an unbranded CSR project by Ferrero. Together with the EFL Trust, the Joy of Moving programme has been supporting children to get active across EFL Communities for over seven years.
The Joy of Moving programme is based on methodology which is designed to inspire children to move through play, and in doing so, build up their physical fitness, motor co-ordination, cognitive functions and creativity and life skills - helping to develop positive habits for adulthood.
In the UK, the programme consists of two in-school elements – the Move & Learn programme and the Joy of Moving Festivals, which have been developed in conjunction with EFL Trust. While these are on pause in line with temporary school closures, we are supporting the communities with access to free, online digital materials via our resource hub.
Senior Schools Provision Officer for the Trust Jack Mountain said: “We’re pleased to again be partnering with the EFL Trust for another Joy of Moving virtual event.
“The Joy of Moving Home Festival was a great success for the Trust last summer, with 1,780 pupils from 11 schools across Preston getting involved, plus a further 100 children from 12 grassroots football teams also taking part with PNECET.
“We look forward to engaging with many more young people through Joy of Moving’s important message to keep young people active at home while many schools remain closed.
“We have already had 14 schools sign up for the Joy of Moving Winter Games and look forward to welcoming many more!”
