The Right To Play!


A great way to kick off a long holiday for students of the Algoma District School Board Thursday.

The board  hosted a Right To Play workshop at Northern Community Centre  featuring a day-long activity for 100 elementary students from eleven ADSB schools, and a group of students from Korah who are involved in a Specialist High Skills Major (SHCM)

Health & Wellness came together to learn about Right To Play (RTP) and its multi-faceted campaigns.

Many recognize Right to Play for their work done in third-world countries. However the messages they share around hygiene, sanitation, gender equality, stereotypes and overall health are equally important for local students to hear and understand.

Ty Greene is the Partnerships Coordinator at Right To Play and he  led the session ,using the simplest of equipment he l introduced participants to health focused, play activities. Through play, he will also encourage them to learn and talk openly about the important health topics that affect them. The students develop respect for themselves and their bodies and practice tolerance and empathy towards others.

Healthy Kids Community Challenge made a significant contribution of fruits and vegetables for participants to enjoy throughout the day.
