This year, Blake Street School is partnering with OPAL and Earth Day Canada to improve the quality of active, outdoor play for children. Research states that “given the importance of play in children’s lives and current concerns about children’s opportunity to access time and space to initiate their own play outdoors, there are considerable benefits for children, parents, schools and the wider community from participation in the OPAL programme.”
Thursday, October 5th will be our big OPAL Play Day!! The activities will proceed rain or shine, so make sure that your child is dressed for outdoor fun.
If you did not receive a flyer with detailed information about the OPAL program, please drop by the office or read a bit more about the overall program here and considerable benefits that have been gained from participation in OPAL here.
