Physical Education

The Government of Alberta has mandated daily physical activity. If a student is unable to participate in Phys. Ed for a medical reason, a doctor’s note will be required.

Our philosophy in junior high is to “turn students on” to being physically active. We attempt to give students the will and drive to become life long learners.

Our P.E. program introduces each student to a wide variety of sports and activities throughout the year. Our school also boasts a tremendous interscholastic program with our school teams being very successful. School teams include: cross-country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, badminton and track & field.

The P.E. program also offers activity over the noon hour. Intramurals are for everyone. We offer a wide variety of activities that allow students to burn off some energy before heading to their afternoon classes. Students have an opportunity to participate in everything from floor hockey to line dancing. Junior High is an exciting time with many changes. We encourage students to get involved in Junior High. The more they put in the more they will get out!

Students will be assessed using the following stems:

  • Performs and refines movement skills
  • Cooperates to demonstrate fair play and teamwork
  • Explores and applies strategies for leading a healthy, active life
