APPLE School / APPLE League
Alberta Project Promoting active Living and healthy Eating (APPLE) Schools, is an innovative school-focused Comprehensive School Health initiative.
Healthy, active kids learn better! Developing a healthy school community starts with the school, parents, and the community being dedicated to helping improve the healthy eating and active living behaviors of the school as a whole.
APPLE League: This programme is founded on an inclusive multi-grade physical education. Activities are purposefully planned so all students are successful. The benefit of this in-class programme is that students who generally don’t see themselves as athletes are enthusiastic and willing to take risks in participating, thereby building an active-minded community with a healthy dose of competition and school spirit. The APPLE League teams create their own logo and team chant, and also earn points for team spirit, sportsmanship and full participation on a weekly basis. Every Thursday, teams compete against each other. When teams are not playing, they enjoy presentations by outside organizations and services. These presentations focus on mental health, physical literacy, or physical activities. A final APPLE Olympics ends the year, and the team that has accumulated the most points throughout the year is presented the APPLE award. Not only do our students benefit from increased physical activity, but our entire community benefits from the positive energy and school spirit.
