My name is Mark Clattenburg and I will be the Physical Education teacher for all the students at Beaver Bank Monarch. The Physical Education Program is designed to enhance knowledge, skills and values related to physical activity and exercise. We will focus on fundamental skills, sport specific skills, goal setting, positive practice habits and social skills. I will do my best to provide many physical activity moments in a variety of fun & safe learning environments. I hope to present physical activity as a “lifetime” activity; an important value to be carried forward in life.

At Home Physical Activity Ideas

Hi everyone,

As we all try to make the best of our current situation, I thought I would reach out and present to you a few simple and fun ways to get some physical activity in if you are stuck inside. These are great opportunities to ensure you are getting the Physical Activity you need. Also, they can all be completed in a very small space.
