In the Health & Physical Education Department we strive to inspire students to live healthy, active lives. Our courses are designed for students of various abilities. We want students to develop a holistic understanding of health and wellness that will benefit them during their adolescence and beyond. Students interested in health-related post-secondary and career options can build their knowledge and experience through our range of courses.
Spring in HPE
On April 4, many of our PE students took part in an OFSAA "Try Day" experience, learning the new game of Spike Ball. Some selected student leaders helped teach this new net game ("volleyball-like") to some of their younger schoolmates over the course of the four periods of the day.
Through the Try Day grant from OFSAA, the PE department was able to use the allotted funds received to purchase the 6 new Spike Ball sets that were featured on Try Day and will continue to be used within courses for years to come.
Special thanks to teachers, John McDonald and Chris Bremer, who coordinated the student leaders and prepared them to present this exciting new game.
Field Trip Opportunity
Details to come about a chance to take part in the "Higher Learning" program, a high ropes program offered to PE students and conducted by local experts, "Wildlife Academy"
This will take place during the week of April 30 to May 4.
