At Captain Nichola Goddard School, our goal for our students to have the maximum level of participation each class with a focus on skill development and fitness. We are building life long healthy humans who have the knowledge to join in any game and the character to invite others to join them. We pose the question to our students “What does it mean to be a good team mate?” and through this question we develop skills that are transferable to all aspects of their lives.

Daily opportunity for cross grade sport/activities in the gym during lunch break. We open the gym every day to give a space for kids to be active and connect with their whole school community. Some times we offer organized intramurals and other times it is on a drop in basis. Our goal is that kids feel welcome to be in the gym anytime and have the skills to be able to join in.
We offer Fit Club once a week for any students or staff who would like to come and work out before school. We do a variety a types of workouts with a focus of building strong healthy bodies. Students can join Fit Club at any point in the year. In June, we take a group of Fit Club students to an obstacle race called the Thermopylae. It is a challenging 5km fitness course that includes large mud pits. So Much Fun!!!!
