Physical Education

Physical Education supports you in acquiring skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities. You will gain experience within various physical activities assisting you in further understanding health and wellness benefits, promoting positive interactions and leading an active lifestyle.

PE Lockers

Each student will be provided with a Phys. Ed. locker and lock for gym clothing. Grade 5 students will be transitioning into using PE lockers over the year. The change rooms are “out of bounds” to students except when changing for physical
education activities. Phys. Ed. locks are not to be exchanged with any other lock. Students are reminded to secure their clothing and personal items in lockers during P.E. activities. Do not leave personal items on the floor or benches.

Gym Clothing

All students are encouraged to change into running shoes, as well as black shorts or sweat pants and a black t-shirt. We believe that uniformity of dress increases school pride. Student names should appear on all items of clothing. The school will not be responsible for lost or stolen items, as each student receives a personal locker. Gym clothing can be purchased from the P.E. teachers for $30.

Gym and Fitness Center Supervision

For student safety, no activity may take place in the gym or fitness center without direct teacher supervision. This applies before school, at lunchtime and after school. The fitness centre is available for Grade 7-9 students. For safety and developmental
reasons, Grade 5 and 6 students do not use the fitness centre. 

Medical Concerns

Students are expected to participate according to their capabilities. If a student is unable to participate or, if an activity is to be restricted due to injury, a note from parents is expected. If, for medical reasons, a student is unable to participate for
an extended period, a note from a doctor is required. Alternate activities and/or assignments are to be expected for students who are unable to participate fully.

Cell Phones / Handheld Devices

Since PE is a very active classroom and students are changing in locker rooms, cell phones or handheld devices will not be allowed in the gym, locker room or during PE class. This also includes outside activities. If students do not follow these expectations, consequences will follow from our Digital Citizenship Agreement.
