HANDS UP - Introduction to Physical & Health Literacy - OpheaCanada
School District 57 is committed to supporting the journey of physical literacy in our students. As a journey rather than a destination, Physical Literacy development is owned by School District and its many partner stakeholders. With the goal of providing our students the tools to be active for life through concerted cultivation of Physical Literacy (P/L) and Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS), we embed a culture of movement and wellness into our classrooms, gymnasiums, hallways, and grounds.
In embedding a culture of movement, School District 57 Physical Literacy aligns with The BC Physical Literacy Activation Plan “Educators have the competence, confidence and commitment to include physical literacy content in their physical activities for children and to champion physical literacy in the school systems, identifying its importance in healthy living as well as learning and development.” (BC PL Activation Plan, 2017)
The Physical Literacy Curriculum Hub page will host professional development, in-service school programs/projects, and collaboration with local and provincial partners.
