Physical Literacy Mentorship 2019/2020: Recess
Physical literacy mentorship in schools is designed to build capacity at the school-level to normalize physical activity throughout the entire school day, including recess!
Through a comprehensive school health approach, Ever Active Schools uses evidence-based best practices in working directly with the immediate school community, including staff, students, families, and community partners/organizations. We work to introduce and/or refine policies and practices that enhance physical activity and positive movement experiences throughout the school. Elements of the mentorship include:
- Professional learning opportunities;
- Community engagement; and
- Capacity building.
Physical literacy mentorship is possible thanks to the partnership with and grant funding from Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. Our work is also supported by partnerships with the Be Fit for Life Network and Alberta Health Services.
SO, WHY IS RECESS IMPORTANT AND HOW CAN WE BETTER SUPPORT STUDENTS THROUGH RECESS?
