Movement, exercise, and physical education are important in our everyday lives. Physical education encompasses a wide range of activities and does not only mean "gym". Phys ed programming has changed from sport-based to movement and skill-based. This means that we do not have chunks of time where we only play basketball, or soccer, or hockey.
At Kikino School, each class is scheduled at least 30 minutes of daily phys ed as well as additional land-based seasonal outdoor activities (this includes skiing, snowshoeing, hiking).
During the winter months, we have Wednesday "Ski Day" where each class gets 1 hour to enjoy the outdoors while on skis or snowshoes.
