Physical Activity Leaders (PALs) Resource

Developing a leadership programme for your senior students 

Cardinal McKeefry school introduced PALS in 2017 and have found it to be hugely successful in getting children of all ages to play together at lunchtimes. 

"Children are naturally drawn to play together, but sometimes skill levels get in the way. Learning games that all ages and stages can play with a shared understanding has encouraged participation across all levels." Tania Savage, Principal at Cardinal McKeefry.

The video below provides an introduction to the Physical Activity Leaders concept. Thank you to Tania Savage, Principal, and all the wonderful kids at Cardinal McKeefry for letting us make this video!


The resource includes a teachers' handbook and a student's handbook:
