SD83 is inviting all students and families to participate in P.L.A.Y Shuswap’s Family Day PLAY Challenge February 12-15th, 2021.
SD83 Healthy Schools Co-ordinator Laura Paiement encourages all SD83 families to join in the multi-community activity challenge that promotes, physical literacy, family fun, and being outdoors. This challenge is being sponsored by SD83, Salmon Arm Recreation, Enderby Recreation Services, Sicamous Recreation and P.L.A.Y Shuswap.
“We are encouraging each family/household group to complete as many challenges as they can. After completing each challenge, they are to send in a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the P.L.A.Y Shuswap Facebook page. Each submission earns them an entry into great local/community prizes. Along with the participation prizes, each community will have a grand prize draw for families/households that complete all 10 activities,” explains Paiement.
P.L.A.Y Shuswap is a group of stakeholders from SD83, Sicamous, Salmon Arm and Enderby Recreation Departments, local sport organizations and Interior Health. We have come together to promote Physical Literacy in the Shuswap.
“Physical Literacy is the gateway to both participation and excellence in physical activity and sport. When you have the foundation of skills, motivation, and confidence you will be more likely to be active for life,“ she adds.
This event is made possible thanks to the support of the BC Government BC Family Day grants.
