Physical activity is an important part of an elementary school student’s life. It improves health, concentration and self-esteem. It also reduces stress and promotes physical growth and development.
Our sports programs aim to develop in our students a positive attitude and an interest in a wide range of physical activities. They also aim to raise student’s awareness in making good health and fitness choices.
At Cedar Drive students are exposed to several activities. Throughout the year we have volleyball and basketball teams/leagues with our grade five students. In the spring we offer Running Club for grades 3-5 that culminates in the District Como Lake Relays run. In April and May, students in grades 3-5 have the opportunity to participate in our Track and Field program. Like the Como Lake Relays, selected participants to our track and field program get to participate in the District Track and Field day at Town Center Stadium. Finally, students at all grade levels participate in our year long Kilometre Kids Program, which helps to support us in meeting our goal of a minimum 15 minutes of daily physical activity.
