How do you provide physical education without a gym?
The goal of our physical education program is to expose our students to a variety of activities that enable them to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our location enables us to make use of a variety of community resources. In our immediate vicinity, we have two fields that enable us to offer multiple field sports (ultimate frisbee, flag football, soccer etc.). We also have access to two basketball courts, a refrigerated rink and the Rideau Canal. In addition, we have relationships with a local gym for personal fitness and training, a dance studio, the YMCA and the facilities at Carleton University.
We often have guest coaches who come and conduct clinics for our students.
We encourage students to try the different types of physical activity that are available to them.
We form school teams based on student interests.
