Fun in the Pool

Did you know? Motor learning is increased and can last up to 4 hours after leaving a warm water therapy pool! This is just one of the many benefits of spending time in our pool.  The Emily Follensbee Therapy Pool opened just before winter break and it has been wonderful to get our students back into the water and see so many happy faces from our students and staff. 

The students’ therapy time has been split into the following activities:

  • Recreation, action songs and games
  • Stretch and Relaxation
  • Individual Therapy Programs
  • Kilo-swim Competition

Our students have been working hard to complete as many pool lengths as they can during the Kilo-Swim. 

Congratulations to the following students who have completed the ½ kilometer swim (50 lengths)!

Decking the Halls for the Holidays

Our last week of school in December was filled with a lot of fun and holiday excitement. Students enjoyed our indoor winter wonderland complete with holiday characters and festive lights, as well as our outdoor classroom with fun activities. Classrooms “decked the halls” by participating in a “Best Decorated Door” contest where everyone won because they all looked so amazing! And finally, we started our winter break in style by wearing our comfiest and coziest pajamas on Pajama Day! 

Team Spirit

Go Flames Go! Our student community engaged in cheering on our favourite team, the Calgary Flames, during the Stanley Cup playoffs. One of our fabulous teachers organized our own mini Red Mile with fun activities including a photo booth where students explored Flames and hockey themed props. Unfortunately, our team didn't win but what the Calgary Flames lost in points, our school community made up for with team spirit! 

Fun with Team Spirit
