School Program

The ultimate school experience

WELCOME

BOUNCE is a sports facility that harnesses the ‘rebound and proprioception benefits’ of trampoline use to deliver a unique challenge and adventure experience.

BOUNCE Inc and Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER) have formed an exciting new alliance to deliver teaching resources that will enrich the delivery of the Australian Curriculum HPE. The resource will enable teachers and BOUNCE venues to make the most of the BOUNCE state-of-the-art facilities and forge a partnership of their own.

The resources have been designed by some of the most experienced health and physical education writers in Australia for both school teachers and specialist HPE teachers. They are resources that encourage joint delivery by teachers and BOUNCE trained and experienced instructors.

We hope the BOUNCE ED program will be a useful tool for teachers and a fun and positive development experience for students.
