At Novopecherska School we have created a unique approach to short, energetic and everyone engaging workouts, which our students use in between their lessons. It is initiated by the teacher, who uses national music (it is a very important aspect in our country to promote national language and local artists), it is highly popular with our students of all ages. It unites groups of students, teachers and families. When learning was happening online, it united families, as the parents actively participated, as well as all the siblings in the family.

What made the project popular is that it helped our students to stay connected by doing the physical activity together online. This went viral on social media, and the teacher supported it with strong messages of the importance of balance in between sitting in front of the computer and doing physical activity. This is not only taking care of your body but taking care of your mind as well.

In addition to that, the teacher shared the important message that physical activity is very important for both body and brain, the impact it has on concentration, memory, mood and other aspects of wellbeing. This is a fun way to teach students to get physically active, either on their own or with family/friends.
