Paralympic Schools Program

The Petro-Canada Paralympic Schools Program is a free online teachers' resource to help teachers engage students in the Paralympic spirit. It provides teachers with the resources to educate students on parasport and establish positive perceptions of people with a physical disability.

This year, the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) will be launching a new, innovative elementary education program that will focus on physical literacy, fundamental movement skills and the importance of parasport in society. These resources will be designed in collaboration with Provincial Ministries of Education, National Sports Organisations and other key stakeholders in the education community. This new educational resource will assist schools in assuring inclusivity and integration, and will also provide further opportunities for students of all abilities to access academic and sporting opportunities.

Building on the success of Paralympic Schools Week 2013, the Canadian Paralympic Committee is pleased to announce that the 2014 edition of Paralympic Schools Week will be held February 24th – March 7th 2014.

With the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games just around the corner, this is a fantastic opportunity to show your support for Team Canada and get your students active in parasport!
