School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is a multicomponent, school-based health promotion initiative for B.C. schools from Kindergarten to Grade Seven. The project provides both in-person and online professional development opportunities to increase educator’s confidence and competence in delivering quality physical activity and physical literacy opportunities at school, and support links to mental well-being.

The School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy Project is being developed, implemented, and evaluated by Sport for Life, the Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council (I·SPARC), Childhood Obesity Foundation, and Physical and Health Education Canada/British Columbia (PHE Canada/PHE BC). The project is supported by the Province of British Columbia.

I•SPARC has adapted and created a number of workshops, print resources, and games and activities specifically designed to support Indigenous students on their Physical Literacy journey.
