This book uses the example of a partnership journey between universities, schools, the local health industry as well as a number of government organisations which worked to ensure the growth of physical education in primary education.

Editorial Reviews

"If we are going to impact pandemic obesity among children and other serious health problems, the work should be done through community partnerships. This book is relevant to various parts of the world and written with cultural, social and economic sensitivity. I highly recommend this book for teachers/educators and community leaders." (Prof Mohammad R. Torabi, Indiana University School of Public Health, Bloomington, USA)"The role of community partnerships in Health and Physical Education is an important one for the future wellbeing of the next generation. This book will help educators rethink the connections between universities and their communities, and what their roles in the partnerships involve." (Prof Megan Crawford, Plymouth University, UK)"This book is significant for those wanting to know more about the importance of community partnerships within children's health and wellbeing. The author has provided extensive evidence about partnerships, allowing the "what if" to be recognised as well as the "how to" for future directions in children's health and wellbeing." (Prof Susanne Garvis, University of Gothenburg, Sweden)"Dr. Lynch has two decades of teaching experience in physical education working with students on three different continents.  He uses his vast research background and practical experiences to produce an extensive and authoritative examination of the importance of how physical education positively impacts a vast array of health and wellbeing factors in students.  I highly recommend this book for the theoretical and practical insights it provides physical educators and readers." (Dr. Gregory J. Soukup, Sr., University of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio, Texas, USA)
