Students are encouraged to get active during recess, on intramural teams and on our school athletic teams. Participation on Grade 7 and 8 teams is determined through tryouts and criteria established by the coach. The students chosen to represent the school on these teams must be students in good standing. Team shirts and equipment used by the teams are to be properly cared for and returned to the school immediately following each sporting event.

Cross Country

Cross Country is available for September and October.


Volleyball season is November/December. Practices take place at recess, and before/after school. The 2015/2016 teams of Gr 7 and 8 girls and boys participated in their tournaments late November/early December. We are very proud of their efforts and accomplishments.
