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.
