ECLYPSE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

The ECLYPSE After School Program is a free program providing students with an opportunity to develop and learn in a fun, safe, secure, and familiar school-based environment. The program will encompass the following elements: physical activity, healthy eating and nutrition, and wellness/ life skills development. This program is funded by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sports.

  • Physical Activity (60%): to teach and encourage participants to be physically active in a fun filled environment. The program shows participants how to implement physical activity into their daily lives to avoid obesity and other health risks. Activities such as basketball, soccer, badminton, volleyball, dodge ball, etc…, are planned and implemented with the students.
  • Healthy eating and nutrition (20%): Healthy nutritious snacks are provided every day. Students are broken into small groups of 10 and learn how to prepare healthy snacks and share them with the rest of the participants. Everyone gets to enjoy eating them and learn the benefits of healthy eating, portion size and nutritional value. The Canada Food Guide is used as a reference in planning these nutritional snacks.
  • Wellness/Life Skills development (20%): Participants decide on a topic such as cyber bullying, bullying, positive communication, safety, respect, etc and a presentation is made by either staff or invited guest speakers from partnering organizations.
