The Physical Education Department implements programs of physical activities, sports, and exercise that are designed to help the students develop fundamental motor skills (running, jumping) and object control skills (throwing, catching), and then subsequently use these skills in a wide range of games and sports. Emphasis is also placed on community leisure skills such as swimming and skating, as well as yoga and community fitness options for older students. Every attempt is made to develop a full range of skills, fitness activities and sport opportunities to suit the various needs of the students in the school.
Community facilities are used for various programs (swimming, skating, hockey, fitness). The Department also coordinates competitive events, including Special Olympics, Defi Sportif, and the GMAA Halo Race. Other events hosted throughout the year include Terry Fox Week, Jump Rope for Heart, Winter Carnival, and various sports tournaments. There are two levels of Intramurals that run throughout the year. The sports covered are basketball, indoor hockey, and soccer, and are extremely popular with students. Two camps takes place in Winter and Spring, with a mix of classes going in each of the seasons, enjoying the different activities that are offered.Bulletin Board
