Artificial Turf - Genuine Maintenance
When Active Living School is hosted at Commonwealth Community Recreation Centre, Artificial Turf—Genuine Maintenance is provided to the class. Students learn about the different types of natural and synthetic surfaces, how they are maintained, and where those little black pebbles come from!
Facility Tour & Staff Introductions
At the start of your Active Living School, students are hosted and brought around the facility. They meet staff and are encouraged to prepare questions. We hope all students actively participate in this introductory tour!
How Pools Work
Inspiring the practical student, this session focuses on the equipment and operational needs of pools. Students are brought behind the scenes and shown what goes into making (and keeping!) the water crystal clear.
Lifeguards educate students on pool chemistry and first aid practices. These lifesavers play a crucial role in our facilities and your students will learn how important they truly are! Who knows, it could inspire them to be future lifeguards.
Students are guided through the ins and outs of ice operations by Arena Operations staff. They gain an appreciation for ice and the process of making it. This includes an introduction to equipment, a private walk through and the creation of their own mini Arena!
Water safety is paramount to enjoying life and its many activities, both indoors and outside. Aquatic instructors and lifeguards review the dos and don’ts around water and use several techniques to get the students thinking.
