Athletics

We offer a well rounded program of athletics at JPII.  Each class has several timetabled PE classes. They participate in a minimum of 30 minutes of daily physical activity. Students also take advantage of the local facilities and participate in swimming, gymnastics, and curling.

We have a large, well equipped gym. Each classroom has a bin of sports equipment for use at recess and noon hour.  

Outside, the students have a large playing area both on grass and on blacktop.  There is a basketball hoop, two tetherballs, monkey bars, swings, slide, and a primary climbing apparatus.

Our senior students have participated in leadership workshops through Action Schools.

Extra curricular sports are offered at various grade levels throughout the year.  We participate in SD#70 sports events as well as the Island Catholic School tournaments.  Some of the sports include:  cross-country, floor hockey, volleyball, basketball, softball, track & field, and badminton.  

Skills, team effort, sportsmanship, and fun are all emphasized in our athletics program.
