Kumon partners with Little Athletics NSW

We are pleased to announce Kumon Australia and New Zealand has entered into a partnership with Little Athletics NSW. Both Kumon and Little Athletics NSW are committed to developing children’s potential.

Kumon understands the connection between healthy bodies and healthy minds. Eating nutritious food and undertaking regular exercise helps students achieve their best, both on the sports field and at school.

Students and athletes also both understand the importance of persistence, practice and hard work in order to achieve results. This is why Kumon and Little Athletics have chosen to work together throughout 2021.

“When our students encounter a new problem, they keep trying until they are able to solve it. They also understand that the right amount of practice lays the foundation for smooth progress. This is similar to young athletes who keep trying and continue practising until they achieve their goals”, said Esther Head, Public Relations Division Leader at Kumon Australia and New Zealand.

“When Kumon and Little Athletics NSW realised the synergy between our organisations, we negotiated a partnership.”

This partnership means Kumon will support the 2021 Kumon State Combined Carnival, to be held from Saturday 6 March to Sunday 7 March in Wollongong, the Little Athletics NSW Coach of the Year Award, and various local Little Athletics NSW events throughout 2021.

“We welcome Kumon to the Little Athletics NSW family knowing that we both encourage development by providing opportunities for personal growth,” said Rebecca Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Little Athletics NSW.

“We promote education, sportsmanship, self-esteem and the development of life skills through engaging in athletics, very similar to the way Kumon provides opportunities to their students”.
