Physical Education occurs daily at WO Mitchell School, in our ‘larger than life’ 1000 person capacity gymnasium or one of our outdoor spaces. We have a vast inventory of equipment and teachers with physical education backgrounds lead programming.
We also offer athletic residencies, where professional athletes work with students. These opportunities are often funded by our generous School Council, and are organized by our teachers. We have so far confirmed Alien Inline Skating once again as a school-wide residency in June 2023.
New for 2022-23 we will see the installation of a bouldering wall in the gym to enhance opportunities for movement and adventurous play.
Recognizing that profound learning opportunities exist beyond our school building, staff seek enrichment possibilities that complement classroom learning. Our students participate in rich and diverse fieldtrips, and classroom teachers make applications to unique programs, for example walking field trips to explore natural outdoor spaces in our community including Silver Springs Botanical Gardens and Bowmont Park.
