  • We continually attempt to promote whole-school activities.  This Minute to Winit challenge provided a great means by which to emphasize this notion.

  • The students had such fun participating.  In fact, we will endeavour to do this again.

  • They were active, laughing and enjoying the positive feelings that were evident throughout the afternoon.

  • We chose challenges that have been used on the TV program that were appropriate for school and for different age groups.

  • We would allow more time to do this another time as students were enjoying it so much.Thank you to the Healthy Schools initiatives for their support of such programs.  It truly does allow for positive team-building.
