In-School Physical Activity Program

Born out of a suggestion from a child and youth worker, experienced Laurier Kinesiology students go into schools to work one on one with students who teachers have identified are struggling to focus or stay on task in class. Laurier volunteers take the students out of class to facilitate game play including their favourite sports. When they are reintroduced back into class, teachers have noted they are much calmer and have an easier time staying on task.
