Host School

PAHL Days are half day events run by High School students and educators in Leadership and Phys. Ed classes. All that is required to host a PAHL Day is a double gym, some basic sports equipment and about 20 students who are interested in providing a great inclusive event for local special education students. This event is completely free of charge and volunteer driven. Special Olympics Ontario supplies all of the necessary equipment, resources and training to the host school.

Local students (elementary or secondary) with intellectual disabilities and their teachers will be invited to participate in activities that introduce them to many official Special Olympics sports including Bocce, Basketball, Soccer, Bowling, Athletics and more. Students and educators will also be introduced to programs that they can take back to their classrooms such as: Active Start, FUNdamentals, Youth Multi-Sport (YMS) and Step Into Action.
