P.E. Teacher Tinker Allester takes a holistic approach to health – it’s not just about exercise! To demonstrate this, she includes a Women’s Wellness unit as part of the Grade 10 P.E. program.
On Wed. December 5th, she invited Lynne Sawchuk, a Registered Dietician and Nutrition Educator from BC Dairy, to talk about healthy eating.
The focus was on healthy lunches, so the girls got their hands dirty to make a delicious and nutritious Feta & White Bean Hummus (a twist on the traditional recipe). Get the recipe here.
Lynne says, “get students ‘cooking’ with real food and you’ll be amazed at what happens!” (see her blog post here).
Here’s what else is planned for the Women’s Wellness unit:
- Crisis Centre: “Reaching Out” (suicide prevention) and “Working Your Mind Muscle” (stress reduction workshop).
- Youth Co.: a company run by youth in BC for youth with HIV.
- Yoga Class
- Relaxation Class
