Moving in the Hallways
Edmonton Catholic Schools is Moving in the Hallways!
Moving in the Hallways is a component of Edmonton Catholic Schools’ Mental Health Strategic Plan. Our school hallways are a unique space to facilitate an active environment for our students, allowing them to practice physical literacy in new ways. The Moving in the Hallways initiative recognizes the importance of creating environments that support student well-being by engaging in active learning throughout the school.
With a whole-school approach, schools are able to support the development of physical literacy by engaging students in a variety of ways. We want to build knowledge and skills around physical literacy, which will support the overall physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellness of our students.
