Active Schools instills the values and habits of active living over the lifespan. In Yukon Schools, daily physical activity is a priority and children have opportunities to be active every school day.
Active Yukon Schools supports teachers to integrate daily physical activity into classroom and school routines because daily physical activity:
* enhances the academic achievement of students,
* instills competence and confidence for participating in physical activity over the lifespan,
* addresses sedentary behaviours that contribute to childhood obesity,
* improves social and emotional wellbeing, and
* makes learning fun.
