Y-PATH Intervention Structure
There are four key components to the Y-PATH intervention:
(1) Student component: Specific focus on Health Related Activity and Fundamental Movement Skill content subsumed within and taught across the existing PE curriculum, delivered by specialist PE teachers.
(2) Parent/Guardian component: PA information evening at the start of the school year, and distribution of specifically tailored Y-PATH PA information leaflets.
(3) Teacher component: All school teachers attend two workshops which highlighted the importance of ‘active role modeling’, encouragement for PA in the school, and voluntary participation in a one week ‘Teacher Pedometer Challenge.’ The teacher pedometer challenge was integrated mid-course during the Y-PATH intervention to further stimulate teacher involvement in youth PA promotion.
(4) Website component: All student, parent and teacher resources are made available for all intervention participants.
