3 Rs in Canada

Here's an article from last spring on work in Canada to establish outdoor activity as an integral part of daily school routine.

"You can see the benefits when kids have a chance to run and play," she said. "You need to have that balance of healthy bodies and healthy minds. And the kids know what it's all about and understand they are improving their health this way.

"With any luck, this will become part of how they manage their lives."

My daughter's former school has kids outside running almost every day as a normal part of the daily routine. It is a good thing.
