activeschoolActive 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.
