Balanced Timetable

Some of the schools in the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board have initiated the “Play, then Eat” format to the lunch period where the lunch period is rescheduled. As indicated in the article from Tara Parker-Pope entitled, “Play, Then Eat: Shift May Bring Gains at School”, research indicates that there are many benefits for students such as less food waste when students are out to play before they sit down to eat. Also, moving outdoor play before eating has added more time to curriculum instruction because when the bell rings to begin afternoon instruction, students are ready to start their academic study. Our school adopted this format in 2012 and will continue to use it in the future.
