Healthy Living on Open Streets

Students danced and juggled. They skipped and did yoga and Mayor Drew Dilkens got a hands-on lesson in how to play Spike Ball.

For 4 hours on Sunday, September 18th the GECDSB showed off some of the ways that students are engaged in healthy, physical activity in our schools, during Open Streets Windsor, 2016.

Open Streets is the largest free recreational program in the city's history. Events like this have been held in hundreds of cities throughout North America and involve the temporary closure of roadways to vehicles, allowing people to use them for a host of healthy and fun physical activities.

The GECDSB engaged families passing by the Aquatic Centre hub with presentations by the Twisty Turners skipping club from D.M. Eagle Public School, dance students from the Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts, the Dougall Public School juggling team, Melissa Juhasz from Yoga Recess and a Spike Ball demonstration by teachers Kyle Trudell, Allan Affleck Stewart Smith and Daniela Amato.
