The heartbeat of our school - River West Park School offers an inclusive Physical Education/Health program for all students in grades K – 8. We follow the Manitoba Education curriculum and support their vision of “Physically Active and Healthy Lifestyles for all Students”. We do this through an emphasis on participation both in class and in extracurricular choices throughout the school year.
Our school was an early adopter of the “Active Start” initiative which allows our K-6 students opportunities to begin their day with cardiovascular exercise in order to enhance their engagement and attention throughout their morning learning. Physical Education classes are built on physical literacy components, movement skills, fitness and an eye on divisional opportunities in athletics. We are a True Sport School.
Throughout the year we offer intramural opportunities from grades 1-8, and our grade 6-8’s participate in the Pembina Trails Athletics Association’s divisional sport leagues.
