ACA Health Benefits Fund, the exclusive Adventist private health insurance fund, recently concluded its 2023 Adventist Primary Schools Health Resource Competition, which saw Brisbane Adventist College win the grand prize of $A1000 cash for their video showcasing students engaging with the education resource books.
The competition is an initiative aimed at fostering health education among Adventist primary school students across Australia. The content for the health resource books was diligently crafted by final-year Primary School teaching students at Avondale University. The books are centred around the theme of reducing screen time for children and have become invaluable tools for educating the younger generation on the importance of health and well-being.
To make these resources accessible, ACA Health provided books to all Adventist Primary Schools across Australia along with copies of previous Health Resource Books for their library.
As part of an ongoing commitment to health promotion, ACA Health introduced the competition to encourage schools to incorporate the resource books into their classrooms. Participating schools had the chance to showcase their student engagement through video, vying for the coveted $A1000 cash prize.
Nine entries were submitted, and Brisbane Adventist College (BAC) emerged as the competition winner with an impressive 158 votes via the Facebook voting system.
ACA Health Marketing Manager Alex Rodriguez said, “we appreciate the active participation and support from all the schools involved, considering it a privilege to contribute to the promotion of healthy lifestyle principles among our children”.
“We encourage all Adventist Primary Schools to get involved in the competition in 2024 and invite everyone to view the short videos on ACA Health Benefits Fund’s Facebook page,” said Mr Rodriguez.
