PHE Canada Open Letter to QDPE Champions
The following is an open letter from PHE Canada to those engaged in providing Quality Daily Physical Education:
"This school year has been difficult with changing learning environments and increased health and safety protocols. Your efforts to overcome these challenges while continuing to foster quality physical education learning experiences for your students has been commendable. We’ve watched as teachers embraced new activities, routines, and teaching strategies to reach curricular outcomes in new, innovative ways. Your resilience, persistence, and continued pursuit of excellence has not gone unnoticed.
In late 2020, we shared a survey to better understand how to enhance and update the QDPE Award Program. The results we received from the PHE Community were both informative and insightful. Given this feedback, as well as the current contexts facing schools across Canada, we are taking this time to pause the QDPE Award Program for this school year and review and explore ways to enhance the program, aimed at better recognizing and celebrating quality programming moving forward.
We appreciate and value you as part of the PHE Community - and we also understand that change can be hard. Although change can be hard, it can also be for the better. In this case, providing an opportunity to look at celebrating quality PHE programming in a fresh new way. We wish to extend sincere thanks and appreciation to all the past and present QDPE Award Program champions and look forward to continuing to celebrate your incredible efforts in the future!
If you have any questions, please feel free to follow up with us at firstname.lastname@example.org."
