Healthy Active Living and Leadership Education

 

 

"Be Excellent, Be Exceptional, Be Extra-ordinary" ……Suzanne Hnatiw

 

Welcome to the Healthy Active Living and Leadership Department

 at North Park SS.

 

Our Physical and Health Education and Leadership Department is led by an enthusiastic, energetic team of teachers whose main goal is to inspire your children to lead healthy, active lives-now and in the future. 

 

Our inspiring group of Healthy Active Living teachers share the vision of keeping kids active for life. We model the spirit of well-being in our lessons and infuse a student inquiry approach into our teaching and learning environments.

 

We believe that the knowledge and skills our students acquire throughout the program will assist them in developing physical literacy and health literacy skills as well as the comprehension, capacity, and commitment to lead healthy, active lives. 

 

We foster a leadership and learning environment that is healthy, safe, caring, inclusive and accepting.  This learning environment supports not only the students' cognitive, emotional, social and physical development, but also their mental health, resilience, and their overall state of well-being.   

 

Leadership courses develop skills in communication, interpersonal relations, leadership, teamwork, and conflict management and apply them in roles such as mentoring and planning of school events. Students will also learn the complexity of social diversity, while acquiring an appreciation of the importance of contributing to their community and helping others throughout their lives.
