At our school we promote healthy, active living. Every class attends P.E. at least twice a week. In addition, every Tuesday and Thursday morning, the entire school population participates in a program called "Bounce at the Bell". This is a 20 minute aerobic program that the students and staff "bounce" to.
We are very fortunate to be located adjacent to Settler's Park, which has a beautiful little man-made lake with trails surrounding it. Classes very often take advantage of this beautiful setting and go for supervised runs around the lake.
In addition to our regular school physical activities, our school participates in the District No. 43 Como Lake Relays which are held every April. This involves our Grade 4 and 5 students who always do a fine job of representing our school. Our school also participates in the District No. 43 Track & Field Event which is held annually during the month of May. The many track & field events are open to students in Grades 3, 4 & 5. Our students train hard for this event, demonstrating positive attitudes, strong efforts and are always great ambassadors for our school.
Our Grade 5 students are also encouraged to join our school Volleyball and Basketball Teams. These teams play against neighboring schools and also attend the annual Tournaments held at Citadel Middle School.
