The British Columbian curriculum embeds healthy living within the curriculum with children encouraged to understand and adopt healthy lifestyles. The curriculum builds through the grades and encompasses Health and Career Education, PE, Daily Physical Activity, Home Economics, Food Studies and Family Studies.
There is strong evidence that physical activity contributes to our overall well-being. Building Daily Physical Activity (DPA) into a child’s routine at school helps to build a habit that hopefully stays with them for life. DPA can be as simple as walking, running, jogging, bending and stretching and will be tailored to meet the needs of each child as they move through the school.
We will also encourage all of our students will develop an understanding about how to create a balanced diet, as well as the importance of drinking enough water, to maintain their concentration levels.
