The Revised PHE Curriculum

What do you know about the newly revised Physical and Health Education (PHE) curriculum? Please let us know in the comments section down below!

Kindergarten students at Nootka Elementary School are embracing the “physical literacy” component of the revised PHE curriculum by using gymnastics to become lifelong lovers/learners of physical activity. Read more here.

Follow the DASH BC blog for discussion on using the PHE curriculum to support student learning and giving students opportunities to build their own understanding of the importance of physical activity and health, now and in the future.

As there is no fixed curriculum delivery model in place, the delivery of the PHE curriculum can be adapted based on the strengths and needs of your school. DASH BC would like to know how your classroom, school, or school community is delivering the PHE curriculum. Please share your success stories and ideas in the comments section down below!

Mental Well-Being In School

All children and youth deserve to be in an environment that supports their mental well-being and the school setting is the ideal place start creating that environment.

Kindergarten students at Anmore Elementary School are taught yoga and breathing exercises as well as strategies for self-regulation and self-calming. This positively impacts their behaviour, benefits developmental and social growth and creates a stronger foundation for the class community, all of which supports student mental well-being.
