Outside the Lines – Recreation at its Best
The theme for this year’s conference, Outside the Lines – Recreation at its Best, celebrates the capacity of the recreation sector to remain relevant and deliver services using innovative approaches and one-of-a-kind solutions. “Outside the Lines” is where the magic happens! Ideas come alive and creative strategies emerge to help untangle complex issues facing our communities. The 2017 RCM Annual Conference will inspire recreation leaders to look beyond the conventional, and collectively continue to build pathways to well-being, and impacting the quality of life of our communities and the province. The conference has been developed specifically for recreation professionals, facility operators and volunteers. The Planning Committee has developed the best in learning, information sharing and networking opportunities that include three keynote presenters, twenty-nine workshops, a tradeshow and social activities for conference delegates to enjoy.

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.
