The grade 3 and grade 1 classes are participating in the challenge called BE ACTIVE EVERY DAY. It is in partnership with the Doctors of BC and we will be having guest speakers come in and issue a challenge to our students. Dr. Nancy McFadden will speak to the grade 3 students; Dr. A Grobler to the grade ones. The campaign started on Monday, Oct 7, and ends on Friday, Nov 2.
And what is the challenge, you ask? Our students are going to try to stick to the 5-2-1-0 rules EVERY DAY for the entire month. That is 5 portions of fruits and vegetables, 2 hours maximum of all screen time, 1 hour of exercise, and 0 sugary drinks.
Sounds like a good plan for all of us!
