"Being an all-boys school, The Push-Up Challenge has made extremely valuable advancements in my peers' ability to have those hard, vulnerable conversations in a really casual but effective way. For the senior students, it’s provided us with competition, an outlet for stress and several important reminders to keep on looking after ourselves mentally and physically while we’re so caught up in school."

- Dylan, St Bede's College, VIC

Can primary schools join the challenge?

We've had a heap of primary schools take part - all it takes is a little adapting of the push-ups and mental health content to ensure it is age appropriate. Get in touch and we can send you more info.
