Daily Physical Activity

Healthy living means healthy learning.  Collingwood Neighbourhood School joins
other schools in Vancouver and the province in encouraging all its
students to meet the Provincial Government’s goal of engaging in 30
minutes of physical activity each and every day.  To help do this at
school, students are encouraged to go outside during recess (20 minutes)
and after having eaten their lunch (another 15-30 minutes). Collingwood
also has 20 minutes of dedicated physical activity after recess when
the whole school walks and runs around Gaston Park.  Students typically
receive 2-50 minute classes of Physical Education each week where
fitness and games are facilitated by the teacher.  As well, our
Community Schools Team organizes programming for our students in the
Collingwood community on Fridays.
