Co-Curricular in Elementary School
The elementary Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) program provides a range of experiences to support and enrich students’ learning and to develop social skills through communicating, creating, acting, learning and solving.
Elementary School offers many activities after school for students in grades 1-5. These may include swimming, karate, soccer, dance, and clay pottery among others. Parents receive information regarding all of these activities before or at the start of each quarter.
Ongoing sporting activities form an important part of our CCA program. The following are offered in the Elementary School: soccer, tennis, swimming, basketball, track and field, roller hockey, netball, lacrosse and running club. Attendance is optional. An Elementary Saturday Sports Program runs throughout the year and offers different seasons of sports: Each year a commissioner is appointed for each season and the success of each program depends on student and/or parent volunteers. The Elementary Program is not competitive in nature but focuses on developing each child’s skills, teamwork and participation. Occasionally other schools are invited for friendly matches and the elementary school participates in regular swimming competitions.
