Move for Health Day at Katzie Elementary

The City of Surrey has planned a Move for Health Day event at a local school where we will engage students from grades 4-7. Our event will be based around the importance of active living and will offer an opportunity to teach students that being active is fun and necessary. We are doing a fun warm-up and then sending the kids off to the 10 different stations, which are being put on by the City of Surrey and other partner sport organizations. Each station will teach them a new skill, or engage them in a fun game or relay. For example, we have Softball BC, Tug of War, RCMP Mini Blue program, and Pacific Sport, just to name a few.
