Religious Instruction currently offered at Coolum State School is a Christian-based ecumenical program during class time. The program is delivered under a cooperative arrangement with church representatives delivering a common agreed program. It is a parent’s choice for their child’s participation. A permission form is issued prior to a Religious Instruction program for each year. Religious Instruction is not always offered to every year level at school.
Schools have an important role in promoting healthy eating and physical activity to students and producing an environment that supports a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet can improve behaviours critical to educational success and performance at school. Effective school-based nutrition and health interventions can also help improve academic performance.
