Each class gets a chance to enjoy the Active Zone every week. Our Playground Leaders bring out and return the equipment at the beginning and end of the day.
Here are some classes enjoying our Active School Walkway for our Santa Dash in December.
We also used the Active School walkway for our St. Patrick’s Day parade in March.
Every class completed the Active Break Every Day challenge in January-February this year.
Room 10 showed us their Bizzy Breaks.
Prefab 12 also created a dance for the whole school to participate in at assembly.
