Basin PLAYS in Schools Program

Basin PLAYS • 27 November 2019

We are excited to announce that eight school districts in the Basin have launched Basin PLAYS in Schools physical literacy projects during the 2018-19 school year.  Updates about these projects will be on the new Basin PLAYS Hub being launched this fall.

Basin PLAYS in Schools aims to support school districts to use an inquiry-based approach to address physical literacy, health and mental well-being priorities.  An invite to submit a Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) was designated to School Districts that were currently involved with the Basin School District Physical Literacy Working Group.  Eight districts submitted project designs and have launched their physical literacy projects that positively impact their students’ physical literacy and well-being.

The Trust’s goal is to expand the scope of this program in the future to include a wider variety of schools and learning institutions. Information about these projects will be shared throughout the 2018/19 school year.
