Swift Current Academy, Newfoundland- Goobies

 The St. John’s Atlantic Place GoodLife Fitness club is being recognized for their Top Fundraiser status during the 2011 Superhero Campaign with a grant to Swift Current Academy.

Swift Current Academy near Goobies Newfoundland currently lacks extra-curricular programs and physical education equipment for students. Because the school population is small - 54 students, there has been many years without a trained physical education teacher.

A grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation will allow the school to offer an improved basketball program to about 35 senior boys, senior girls and elementary students. The target of starting with elementary students will build sustainability of the program over the years. The outcome will be an improvement in students’ behaviour, enthusiasm, and grading, as well as the development of long-term physical activity habits.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
