Structured & Integrated Movement
BOKS (Building Our Kids' Success) is a free physical activity program intended to get students in Grades Primary through 9 more physically active. Videos and resources have been updated to reflect physical distancing measures.
Kids Run Club is a free school-based program that gives students an opportunity to be active through running. It was created by Nova Scotian doctors to encourage children to engage in physical activity on a regular basis. Each year, more than 17,000 kids from more than 200 schools attend Kids Run Club events.
Physically Active Lessons (PALs) are delivered by educators in 20-30 minutes and are well suited for math, language and social studies classes.
ASK was piloted in SSRCE in 2018-19, and is currently under expansion.
