Spring 2018

PROGRAM GUIDE

TABLE OF CONTENTS The Squamish Recreation Services spring season has finally arrived! From hockey and basketball to swimming and dance, there are plenty of programs and activities to choose from for all ages and abilities. We also recognize that having an active body is just as important as having an active mind, which is why we offer a range of arts, education and music programming such as drawing, weaving, mixed media and piano. As always, if you don’t see something that inspires you, please let us know how we can make what we offer even better. Plus, watch for more opportunities coming this spring to help shape future upgrade plans for Brennan Park!

LEARNING IS AN ADVENTURE 2018/2019 pre-school and kindergarten registration open We believe learning is about connections. In this truly natural, loving and creative environment, children are guided through a rhythmical program of free play and structured activities designed to meet the cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of the kindergartener. Waldorf’s handson approach engages students of all learning styles and allows their natural abilities to unfold with confidence, and supports the foundation of future academic success.

Squamish Waldorf School meets and exceeds all BC Ministry of Education curriculum requirements, and has been providing academic excellence for students since we were established in 2002.

Canada’s Physical Literacy June Consensus Statement 2015 In recent years, various stakeholders have engaged in activities to

promote and develop physical literacy. Excitement around the concept has

also led to a variety of definitions, and sometimes a misuse of the term by using it interchangeably with “physical activity”, “physical education”,

“fundamental movement skills” or “motor skill development”. In a broad consultation, sector leaders in Canada suggested that a common

definition with consistent language was needed to provide clarity

for the development of policy, practice and research.

ThepurposeofthisStatementisto: •p  romote the value of physical literacy and preserve the integrity of the concept

• improve the consistency and clarity of communications relating to physical literacy

• advocate for the use of a common definition of physical literacy, as defined by the International Physical Literacy Association

•inform the consistent and co-ordinated development of physical literacy tools and resources created by various stakeholders.

• facilitatealignment within and between the multiple sectors in the physical literacy community

DefinitionofPhysicalLiteracy

Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.

International Physical Literacy Association, May, 2014

66


TheElementsof PhysicalLiteracy The definition of physical literacy

includes four essential and interconnected

elements whose relative importance may change throughout life.

Motivationandconfidence(Affective)

Motivation and confidence refers to an individual’s enthusiasm for, enjoyment of, and self-assurance in adopting physical activity as an integral part of life.

Physicalcompetence(Physical)

Physical competence refers to an individual’s ability to develop movement skills and patterns, and the capacity to experience a variety of movement intensities and durations. Enhanced physical competence enables an individual to participate in a wide range of physical activities and settings.

Knowledgeandunderstanding(Cognitive)

Knowledge and understanding includes the ability to identify and express the essential qualities that influence movement, understand the health benefits of an active lifestyle, and appreciate appropriate safety features associated with physical activity in a variety of settings and physical environments.

Engagementinphysicalactivitiesforlife(Behavioural)

Engagement in physical activities for life refers to an individual taking personal responsibility for physical literacy by freely choosing to be active on a regular basis. This involves prioritizing and sustaining involvement in a range of meaningful and personally challenging activities, as an integral part of one’s lifestyle.
