Friends Academy Celebrates Unity Day with First Community Group Meetings

On Thursday, October 10, the Friends Academy community wore orange to honor Unity Day, part of Bullying Prevention Month. The day was also marked with the first meetings of all-school Community Groups, which bring together students and adults in all divisions to strengthen bonds across campus.

The Friends Academy Physical Education program aims to educate students to become lifelong learners of health and wellness by participating in activities that develop behaviors which encourage lifelong physical activity in and outside of the educational setting, healthy decision making and appropriate social skills.

The unique nature of Physical Education affords an individual the chance to not only develop skills that will allow them to become physically fit and remain active, but to take ownership for their own health and wellness. Individuals learn to value activity and movement, develop appropriate personal and social behavior, and develop an understanding that physical activity provides opportunities for enjoyment, social interaction and create a hedge against chronic disease.
