Streetfront Program Transforms Students into Marathon Runners

Hidden away in a pair of joined portables on the cusp of Britannia Secondary's property is one of the Vancouver School Board's most dynamic and inspiring programs.The Streetfront program is an active alternative program that puts a strong physical aspect to the curriculum; running three times a week, regular gym sessions, swimming and weight training, along with hiking, camping, canoeing, and Nordic skiing. In addition, Streetfront instructors teach their students how to run marathons. Here's a short video showcasing the program and the amazing work they do there.
