A balanced and integrated Health and Physical Education program helps children and youth think critically about their physical, social and emotional needs. The skills and strategies they learn will help them participate in and promote healthy, active living now and throughout their lives.
Here are a few highlights from the video that express how learning is connected to real life:
“We’re doing health in language, as part of media literacy. We’re doing grade 7 and 8 health, as part of their science. They’re learning that these things do not exist as independent little pockets.” — Robin MacDonald
“I want my students to understand that - so you’re not in school for 12 years and then you’re going to go into life. You’re in it now.” — Joanne Walsh
