Families in PE

The highlight of our year has been Families in PE!  This year 178 adults came to take part in fitness and skill activity stations, led by our Primary School student teachers!  Participants were also invited to sign the Fuel Up to Play 60 Pledge!  A BIG thank you to families for their support!


Take the PACES Day Challenge!

Saturday, May 4 at Home

“Exercise with families around the world!”



PACES is an acronym for Parents and Children Exercise Simultaneously!

Primary School Families are invited to participate in our 3rd Annual AT HOME PACES Day Challenge on Saturday, May 4, 2019!  Mrs. Woods and her family challenge you to EXERCISE AS A FAMILY too!

Take a family walk, family bike ride, participate in an exercise video together or play sports as a family!
