Daily Physical Education
The Physical Education program at IREC in embedded in each class’ daily schedule. Students are encouraged to be active everyday and with the goal to develop a desire to participate in physical activity for life. Students are taught age appropriate skill progressions in various areas, including movement activities, dance, games, types of gymnastics, individual activities and activities in alternate environments, such as swimming, yoga and snowshoeing. Students learn lifelong skills in cooperation and sportsmanship which is modeled daily by our staff using the 7 habits. Our P.E program creates a sense of community through our school wide events such as Fall Frenzy, Winter Carnival, Sports Day, and our annual Spring Fling. IREC has created partnerships with other organizations such as FunTeam Alberta, where our Grade 3 students learn how to become P.E leaders to our Kindergarten students.
