THAT SUGAR FILM presents the facts about sugar in an entertaining and accessible way. The film provides ideal stimulus material for teachers wanting to explore food and nutrition content in Years 5 – 10.

A message from Damon

“This is one of the most exciting parts of the whole project for us. Every element that went into writing and developing the film or book was done with the next generation in mind. This is the generation that needs the message the most. We have to learn from the mistakes we have made and make it a priority that the children understand that a major player in their mental, physical and even emotional happiness is the food they put into their bodies. We hope this school action kit goes a long way to inspiring a generation of healthy, happy and alert leaders that will in some way contribute to a better world.” – Damon

Sugar ambassador

Schools are implementing their action plans and leading the charge to become low-sugar environments. Check out their inspirational stories in the blog posts tagged ‘schools’.

“Thank you so much for making the film, book and app. Most especially, the documentary as it is such a riveting eye opener for me. It’s so empowering that teenagers like me want to talk about it, make statuses and updates about it. I took action straightaway and told all my friends and family. I really want to get the word out there because I honestly never thought about sugar this way.” -ERIN

School Action Toolkit

The School Action Toolkit is a suite of resources crafted around That Sugar Film and That Sugar Book to educate and raise awareness about sugar consumption within primary and secondary school settings.

Developed in collaboration with curriculum experts, the Toolkit is a one-stop shop that walks schools through a process for implementing sustainable change and provides practical tools to help engage the whole school community.

We are delighted to be working with Bupa, our Health and Care Partner for the School Action Toolkits and Schools Outreach program.

Thanks to Bupa’s generous support, we were able to offer a special discount to the first 250 Australian schools that registered to purchase a School Action Toolkit. Please subscribe to the Schools Mailing List below to be the first to hear about future offers.

The Toolkit consists of:

• That Sugar Film on DVD
• That Sugar Book
• Study Guide (Years 5-10)
• 10 x short segments of the film for teachers to use
• Action Planning Guide
• Posters, handouts and worksheets for the classroom or home
• Digital materials and tools

“Providing kids in Australia with access to information and tools such as the That Sugar Film School Action Toolkit is an important step towards addressing some of the nation’s toughest health challenges. Even small changes to our diets can help prevent many health problems like high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes.”

Study guide

The film has been devised so that sections of the film can be shown on their own to provide inspired, fun learning in the classroom. We have developed a comprehensive Study Guide mapped to Health and Physical Education and Design and Technologies curriculum content for different year levels that uses interactive activities from the film and the book.

The Study Guide is a key component of the School Action Toolkit.

To download a free preview of the Study Guide, please sign up to the Schools Mailing List below. 

Schools Outreach

We are working on a range of engagement initiatives that will be delivered via our website and social media channels. These initiatives will include opportunities for schools to engage with Damon and other high-profile friends of the film. You will also be able to monitor your school’s progress and see what other schools around Australia are doing to reach their goals of raising awareness and reducing sugar consumption.

Please sign up to the Schools Mailing list below and follow us on Facebook to be the first to hear about these outreach initiatives.

SCREENINGS 

school screenings (AVAILABLE FROM 1 JULY 2015)

It’s wonderful to be hearing from so many schools that would like to hold on-site screenings for their students and the wider school community.

Schools that purchase a School Action Toolkit are automatically granted an educational licence to screen the film on school premises. This licence extends to free screenings for parents and staff, but does not extend to fundraisers or ticketed events where an entry fee is charged.

FUNDRAISER AND ‘FOR PROFIT’ SCREENINGS

If you wish to host a fundraiser screening for your school, you need to purchase a ‘Community Screening’ licence which allows you to sell tickets to raise funds for your chosen cause.

Schools that have already procured a School Action Toolkit are able to purchase a discounted ‘Community Screening’ licence for a nominal fee. Please email screenings@madman.com.au with ‘School Fundraiser’ in the subject line and one of our team will get back to you with further info.

If you have not purchased a School Action Toolkit and wish to host a fundraiser or ‘for profit’ screening, please complete our Community Screening form by clicking below and we’ll get back to you with applicable pricing.

Please complete our Community Screening Form

If you’d like more information about booking a cinema screening for your school, please refer to the Schools FAQ’s.
