Response to Survey on Reporting of Student Progress in Physical Education/Health Education

May 16, 2016

The Manitoba Physical Education Teachers’ Association (MPETA) and the Manitoba Physical Education Supervisors’ Association (MPESA) would like to thank the 363 individuals who recently completed the online survey on Reporting of Student Progress in Physical Education/Health Education.

The initial review of the survey results indicates that while there may be some interest in moving from one method of reporting (I.e. rubric score, percentage, or complete/incomplete) to another within certain grade groupings there is not enough conclusive data at this time to initiate any changes to the current Provincial policy on reporting student progress/achievement via the Provincial Report Card.

The MPESA and MPETA will further analyze and discuss the survey results with Manitoba Education and provide a more in-depth analysis report in an upcoming MPETA Journal.

Again both MPESA and MPETA would like to thank all respondents for their participation.

Winter Workshops by Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship

January 4, 2016

Each winter, Park Interpreters host one-day workshops that are ideal for teachers wanting to learn how and where to take their students on field trips to provincial parks.

During the workshop we provide an overview of the Manitoba provincial park system, discuss how to prepare for park field trips, highlight educational opportunities and recreational activities in parks. The workshops also include a guided snowshoe trek and snow activities.

We have two workshops planned in January.  One at Spruce Woods Provincial Park and one in Whiteshell Provincial Park.  Please visit the website below for details, or please contact the Head of Interpretation for more information.
