Update on EAS Work - June 2020

Here are some things we’ve been up to, and some ways we can support you and your family to be active and healthy at home:
  • Daily physical activity (#DPAeveryday) videos are running Monday – Friday at 9am MST on our YouTube channel! Find new physical activity ideas to keep your community active.
  • We’re hosting weekly "In The Round" Chats with health, education, active living and recreation sector professionals on a variety of topics. Tune in every Thursday at 3pm MST.
  • Check out our compilation of FREE health and physical education resources on our store.
  • We’ve created At Home Activity Kits with versatile equipment to keep your family moving and having fun. And the best part is, every purchase contributes to getting a kit to a family in financial need!
  • We've compiled a list of resources to support physical activity, healthy eating, and mental health and well-being, as well as community supports on our COVID-19 Resources page.
  • To help prepare school communities for classroom re-integration, check out our new Return to Learn bundle with resources to encourage physical distancing and social and emotional learning, and a professional learning opportunity to get everybody on the same page.

WHO WE ARE

Ever Active Schools is a provincial initiative designed to create and support healthy school communities. We engage and support schools through a Comprehensive School Health approach, which addresses health and education goals to improve the social outcomes of children and youth in Alberta.

Through collaborative partnerships, projects-based work, knowledge exchange and competency-based learning opportunities, Ever Active Schools spearheads meaningful collaboration between the health, education, recreation and active living sectors. 

Ever Active Schools is a special project of the Health and Physical Education Council of the Alberta Teachers Association. We are grateful for ongoing Government of Alberta support and funding from Alberta Health, Alberta Education and Alberta Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women.

WHAT WE DO

EAS is a connecting point and hub within the province for the advancement of comprehensive school health and the support of provincial efforts around healthy children and youth. Ever Active Schools works directly with Alberta schools supporting wellness education and comprehensive school health, building capacity through innovative projects and through competency focused learning opportunities.
