To celebrate ten years of Operation Transformation, Karl Henry wants every primary school in Ireland to get moving for 10 minutes of exercise at 10am this morning, February 10th.
Karl was interviewed by RTÉ and this is what he said:
10@10 – What is it?
“It’s pretty simple – to celebrate 10 years of Operation Transformation we want every primary school in Ireland to take 10 minutes of exercise this morning at 10 am. We have built a specific classroom exercise programme and schools can download this to play at any time, so go on and get your school ready to join us!”
Who came up with this great idea?
“The idea was generated at one of our brainstorming meetings for series ten of Operation Transformation. We wanted to get Ireland moving and celebrate ten years of the show and what better way to do it?”
Will these campaigns help reduce the number of cases of childhood obesity? If so, how?
“These campaigns will help to make exercise fun for primary schools and help give the benefits of health to those who take part.”
