Early Years K-5
During the Early Years, emphasis is placed on the acquisition of basic movement skills and their use in introductory and simple activities. Students begin to understand what movements to do, as well as why and how to do them. These skills are the building blocks for participation in all physical activity and are the prerequisites for lifelong physical activity.
Intramural activities consist of organized league play either before or after school or during the lunch hour. Intramurals are offered when the resources are available for schools to accommodate this.
The components of an Intramural Program are:
- leagues and tournaments
- self-directed activities
- clubs and special event days
Offsite School Activities
The Louis Riel School Division recognizes the importance and educational value of offsite school programs and activities. Such experiences reflect the educational goals of the Division and may complement learning outcomes, curricula, and school programs.
Offsite school programs and activities are defined as any planned educational activity that takes an individual student or a group of students off school grounds. Included in the definition are activities that are categorized as interscholastic activities, activities in the community, residential camping, wilderness experiences, educational or cultural tours, and recreational activities. These activities may be general in nature or higher risk and, as such, require appropriate procedures to ensure safety of students and preparedness.
