Spark Gym Class
“SPARK is a research-based, public health organization dedicated to creating, implementing, and evaluating programs that promote lifelong wellness. SPARK strives to improve the health of children and adolescents by disseminating evidence based physical activity and nutrition programs…”
The focus of SPARK is the development of healthy lifestyles, motor skills, movement knowledge, social and personal skills.
It is expected that children joining SPARK Physical Education/Physical Activities will:
- enjoy and seek out physical activity.
- develop and maintain acceptable levels of physical fitness.
- develop a variety of basic movement and manipulative skills so they will experience success and feel comfortable during present and future physical activity pursuits.
- develop the ability to get along with others in movement environments (e.g., share space and equipment, employ the “golden rule” of competition – be a good sport, and demonstrate cooperative behaviour).
