Body Kind Schools is Australia’s largest annual positive body image movement for young people. Formerly Love Your Body Week for Schools, Body Kind Schools takes an evidence-informed approach to promoting positive body image and asks young people to find ways to be kind to their own body and to others.
Anyone working with young people can get involved. Body Kind Schools curriculum activities have been developed for young people in late primary and secondary (11-18yo) and other youth settings. However, some of the general awareness activities can also be implemented with younger primary school aged students.
Registrations must be by an adult.
It can be challenging to know how to address body image concerns. Body Kind Schools makes it simpler.
It’s fun, flexible and FREE! You choose which activities you do from the range of free resources provided and decide when you do it; whatever works for you. Activities can be teacher-led or peer-led.
Sign-up now and you’ll be joining thousands of schools and youth organisations around Australia in addressing this important issue, in support of Body Image and Eating Disorder Awareness Week (5 – 11th September 2021).

In Term 3 2021 we are launching Australia’s first whole of primary school program Butterfly Body Bright. It will include curriculum content (foundation upwards), professional development, information for parents and strategies to support a whole school approach.
A Body Kind Fundraiser is a way you can help raise valuable funds so that Butterfly can continue to support body confidence, Australia-wide.
There are many ways to get involved. How much you raise is not important; shining a light on being Body Kind is.
Take a look at our fundraising guide for some great ideas.
