Physical Education and Wellness

We know that physical education and wellness are essential components of a well-rounded education. Our comprehensive program for Kindergarten through 6th grade is designed to promote healthy habits, physical fitness, and overall well-being among our students.

Our physical education curriculum is aligned with the Alberta Education standards and emphasizes the development of fundamental movement skills, sportsmanship, teamwork, and lifelong fitness habits. Through a variety of activities, games, and exercises, students are empowered to lead active and healthy lives.

In addition to physical fitness, we recognize the importance of addressing the holistic wellness of our students. Our program integrates lessons on nutrition, mental health, stress management, and personal hygiene to promote overall well-being and resilience.

We strive to create an inclusive and supportive environment where every student feels comfortable participating and exploring their physical abilities. Our teachers employ differentiated instruction and adaptive equipment to accommodate diverse learning needs and abilities.

We believe in the power of community partnerships to enhance our physical education and wellness program. We collaborate with local organizations, sports clubs, and health professionals to provide students with access to additional resources, extracurricular activities, and wellness initiatives.
