Our Lady of Guadalupe School, Ontario- North York
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Our Lady of Guadalupe School’s We Want to Get Fit Program.
Located in North York, Our Lady of Guadalupe School is a JK to 8 school, with a strong population of students with English as a second language. School leaders have identified that students currently do not have access to extracurricular activities, lack some of the skills necessary for various physical activities, and do not have access to equipment in order to play sports and other activities. We Want to Get Fit is being offered as an opportunity to expose students to a variety of physical activities including games and sports. Using Playground Activity Leaders in Schools (P.A.L.S) as a basis, students in grades 5 & 6 who display leadership qualities will be trained to lead daily playground activities for younger students. We Want to Get Fit is offered to all students and run throughout the school year.
