Outlook part of physical literacy pilot
Saskatchewan in motion and the Partners for Physical Literacy are working with a local team in Outlook to develop a specific plan for getting kids moving more and increasing physical literacy at home, at school and in the community.
What’s physical literacy? It’s the confidence, competence and motivation to move and one of the keys to a lifelong love of physical activity. Learn more about physical literacy, why it matters and what you can do, here.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback to help us paint a picture of physical literacy and physical activity in Outlook! Your Community Profile is the first step toward developing a plan to get local kids moving more.
What we’ve been up to:
- Saskatchewan in motion collected information through an online survey, focus groups and one-on-one meetings.
- We held a gathering November 28 2018 to bring the community together. About a dozen local leaders attended the Moving Together Symposium to explore opportunities and identify practical local actions that will get kids moving more and increase physical literacy. Saskatchewan in motion is compiling the results of the session.
- We held an action planning meeting March 27 2019. At the session, we set priorities based on the results of the Moving Together Symposium, set objectives for each, and started to identify who would be involved in each action.
What’s next? We're planning follow up meetings with additional stakeholders, including teachers and students who couldn't join us at the symposium, to incorporate their views into the mix.
