Gross Motor

We have a spacious Gross Motor Area in our school and a well-designed outdoor classroom that children use every day. In both areas, children are encouraged to participate in active play and to develop a positive attitude towards personal health and fitness.

Some of the areas included in the gross motor program are:

  • physical fitness, with a focus on participation and enthusiasm
  • the development of movement skills
  • an understanding of diet and nutrition, and of safety
  • the social skills that come from team work and sportsmanship.

Our Kindergarten program includes formal gym lessons following Manitoba Education curriculum guidelines.
