The pleasure on Governor General David Johnston's face as chidren from The Cridge Childcare Services demonstrated phycial literacy for him was more then clear. His Excellency beamed, clapped and high-fived the children who performed, clearly delighting in their energetic display of throwing skills.
For the past several months, the children of The Cridge Childcare services from age 3-12 worked with instructors from the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence on age-appropriate basics of sport. Called the ABC's of Physical Literacy, the program is funded by The Victoria Foundation in response to a challenge from Governor General David Johnstone for community foundations to contribute to the creation of 'smart and caring' Canadians.
