Woodstock Collegiate Institute - Ontario, Woodstock
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Woodstock Collegiate Institute’s Developmental Physical Education program. The Developmental Education Program at Woodstock Collegiate Institute is designed to provide opportunities for students with developmental challenges to improve their life, living, job and communication skills to the degree that they are able to reach their potential in the areas of independence, productivity, and contributions as members of their community. Physical and mental wellness are major components of the program, with 75 minutes dedicated to daily physical activity. Funding from GoodLife Kids Foundation will allow for enhanced physical activity offerings including implementation of the DrumFIT program as well as support for specialized activities such as yoga, bowling and badminton. Incorporating opportunities outside the school will help students to build a level of confidence and comfort in participating in activities within the broader community throughout their lives. This range of activities will help students with special needs to develop a variety of skills and maintain interest in a physically active lifestyle.
