Physical Education 

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. 

Course highlights: 

High participation in all grade levels 

Wide variety of sport experiences at grade 6 

Leveled learning at grade 7-9 to focus on improvement at all levels 

Gymnastics and Pirates challenge in Nov 

Whole School field trip in December 

Dance Extravaganza in February 

Track and Field Olympics in April 

Sports Day in June 

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!!!!

As the days get chillier and the nights get longer, it is a great time to cozy up and connect with a good book or three. The CBE Literacy Team hosted Superintendent Holowka and Superintendent Pitman in a virtual system read aloud event today! #WeAreCBE
