FOCUS

Intramurals are a great way to get everyone involved. They provide an opportunity for everyone of all abilities to play, develop skills, have fun and form friendships. 

INTRAMURALS

 

Leadership in sport and recreation involves guidance, direction, control, management and supervision.

LEADERSHIP

 

Lunch and break times provide an ideal opportunity for safe, structured and fun activities to engage all children and help meet recommended guidelines for all children to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Active playgrounds result in a reduction in break time incidents and accidents as well as a reduction in senior management time spent dealing with accidents and behaviour problems.

ACTIVE PLAYGROUNDS

 

Daily physical activity is a critical component of making sure that publicly funded schools in Ontario are healthy places to learn. Studies have shown that when the physical health and well-being of students is supported, their academic achievement improves as well.

DAILY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

 

Physical literacy encompasses the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that establishes purposeful physical pursuits as an integral part of their lifestyle.

PHYSICAL LITERACY

 

Recreational dance refers to any form of dance that is done primarily for its social, educational or health benefits. According to the Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute, dance is among the 12 favourite recreational activities for Canadians of all ages.
