Our Active Agent Committee members have all been trained as Playground Leaders. When we go outside for break-times, these leaders wear blue hi-vis vests and have access to a folder of yard games which they created themselves! The leaders can bring a game outside to anyone who wishes to play or who perhaps has run out of ideas of games to play. This initiative is working very well for all children!
