Leading the Pack in PE

Woodhaven students are very fortunate to have the luxury of daily physical education but even more so, they are lucky to have 4 qualified and passionate Physical Educators leading the program!  We often take our good fortune for granted but very few middle schools in the world, offer this type of daily PE programming to students in this age group!  The research is constantly flowing to inform us of all of the physical, academic, mental, and emotional benefits of daily physical activity and more recently we are learning how important physical literacy is to the development of a child.  PHE Canada defines physical literacy as individuals who move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person.  Woodhaven has been recognized by PHE Canada for our Outstanding Achievement in providing Quality Daily Physical Education!  This is a 4 star award which is the highest level of achievement recognized in Canada. Well done Woodhaven!  We look forward to another star worthy year in 2017/2018!
