A little about us...
Aussie Active Desks is the brainchild of an experienced Queensland teacher passionate about promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyles. She returned from an ACHPER International Conference in 2015 after hearing researchers promote the importance of getting students to stand up, move more and sit less, inspired to provide Australian schools with a cost-effective option for considering the use of sit-to-stand desks in classrooms to promote student learning, engagement and health outcomes.
The teacher's husband lead the charge to design an affordable sit-to-stand desk option for all schools irrespective of school size, location, sector or level across Australia.
He worked with local Queensland manufacturers Page Furnishers, located on the Sunshine Coast, to come up with a range of Junior and Senior desk options. The couple’s sons who are at Primary School have been avid supporters and testers of the desks at each stage and the teacher’s local school trialed several desks in the first phase of production.
The family moved to the Sunshine Coast at the end of 2018 to be closer to family, as well as the Aussie Active Desks manufacturers.
