10,000 Steps in the primary school environment : a pilot study, 2010

This report details the results of six focus groups conducted to determine applicability of the 10,000 Steps program in the primary school environment. Resources were discussed with both teachers (three focus groups) and students (three focus groups) from the participating schools to determine the response and awareness of the 10,000 Steps program, pedometer performance as well as which 10,000 Steps resources were used and their appropriateness for the school environment. Based on the findings, recommendations on how the 10,000 Steps program could be tailored to the primary school environment were proposed.
