Grade 8 Extreme Sledding Competition Results
Play Every Day!
Every morning between 8:30 and 9:00, students have the opportunity to have “free gym”. The Grade 5 and 6 students play on days 1, 3 and 5 while the Grade 7 and 8 students have days 2, 4 and 6. Staff supervise games like floor hockey, basketball, beach volleyball, or just let the students pick what they want to do. It’s a great way to start the day. In addition to their regular physical education, students are also given gym time with extra phys ed, which ensures that all students “play” for at least 30 minutes per day.
Taking time to play every day is good for the body and great for the brain!
