Healthy Mind, Healthy Body
Education Week 21 - 27 May 2017
This year’s Education Week will be celebrated from 21 to 27 May with the theme of
Healthy Mind, Healthy Body.
What is Education Week?
Education Week is an opportunity for all primary and secondary schools and early childhood services to showcase the work they are doing for students to help ensure healthy minds and bodies.
The week aims to profile and celebrate everything from sport, dance, mentoring, yoga, meditation, reading, and art, to camps, excursions, breakfast clubs, healthy canteen menus, stress management and resilience; and more.
How can schools get involved?
A full program of free public activities for school students is now available.

A suite of resources for schools will be published on this page nearer to Education Week.
Share your ideas and stories
We ask schools to start thinking about how they might be able to mark education week for their students and school community, and to also let the Department know about any stories relating to the theme that schools think should be promoted during that week.
Please send story ideas or any questions about the week to:
The overall goal of Education Week is to positively profile the strengths and achievements of Victoria’s government education sector. The
Healthy Mind, Healthy Body theme aligns to the Education State target of Happy, Healthy and Resilient Kids which recognises that the healthy development of our students helps to drive the future prosperity of Victoria.
