Body and Mind Conference
- Flexing to reach new ideas… -
Tecumseh Vista Academy will host the second annual “Flexing Body & Mind” conference - Friday, November 14th from 4:00 pm-8:00 pm.
Organized by the Greater Essex County District School Board, it will include participants from the Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board, CSC Providence as well as the GECDSB.
The program provides professional learning for attendees to demonstrate that they can make physical activity enjoyable for students while also teaching a variety of other communication skills that they can use now and into the future. Sessions this year will include Building Positive Mental Health, Living Skills and Inclusion Through Active Games and Pilates.
A community marketplace will be set up, featuring various groups and vendors offering supports for teachers who want their students to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
Last year, educators from Windsor, Essex County, Chatham-Kent and some from as far away as London attended. “Body and Mind” is entirely driven by volunteers and a bevy of partners from many different fields.
