Barbara Laing from Omanu School says… I love the way JUMP JAM is so easy to incorporate into your day at anytime. It’s possible to just do a quick warm up / brain jog in your class room if you have mat space or you can use it as a 10 minute fitness activity and can involve other rooms as well if wanted.  Because there is a DVD for every routine you don’t even have to do it yourself or need leaders. At our school we have syndicates who all come to the hall at the same time each week for half an hour to do as many routines as they can fit in.  We are also able to do it outside as we have portable sound system and the kids know so many routines off by heart. We use student leaders to run lunchtime sessions as well as class sessions and it provides these kids with plenty of opportunities to develop their confidence, problem solve, improve their organisational skills and become positive role models in our school. Covers every Key Competency!

JUMP JAM is loads of fun, easy to follow and improves the students fitness without them realising it makes me use it.
