Intermediate Athletics (Grades 4–7)

The intermediate physical education program is a well balanced program which includes opportunities for participation in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities from across the five activity categories that enable students to develop a range of non-locomotor, locomotor and manipulative movement skills.

The five activity categories are:

  • Alternative Environment Activities
  • Dance
  • Games
  • Gymnastics
  • Individual & Dual Activities

The physical education program is supplemented by intramurals that occur twice a week during lunch hours. We encourage all athletes by join!

Each class is planned so that every athlete, regardless of skills or ability, is actively involved within a supportive, enjoyable and sportsmanlike environment.

Gym Strip

In order to participate safely in each exciting class, an athlete must wear proper gym strip.

The proper gym strip must include:

  • St. Patrick's issued green t-shirt
  • St. Patrick's issued athletic shorts (green or navy)
  • White socks
  • Non-marking athletic shoes (preferably lace up)

Athletes may also wear St. Patrick’s track suits, sweat tops and sweat pants over top of the gym strip. As we have such beautiful gym floors, it is imperative that every student’s non-marking athletic shoes remain at school for the entire year. This will ensure that shoes remain clean and also help eliminate one item that is being carried back and forth to school. We also ask for outdoor shoes to be brought to school as the athletes will be playing games on the field during fall and spring.

Teamwork & Fair Play

Every St. Patrick's athlete is encouraged to join one or all of the following teams:

  • Swimming
  • Cross Country
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Basketball
  • Badminton
  • Track and Field

We are always looking for committed, disciplined and determined athletes who are not afraid of hard work to join in on the success our school is known for.

Testimonials
When I came to St. Patrick's I was a very shy girl; it was difficult for me to leave my mother’s safe and loving arms. St. Patrick's, especially the teachers, helped me with this. Now that I’m in grade seven I look back and realize there was never once that I felt ignored or uncared for. I will never forget St. Patrick's and what it did for me.

At St. Patrick’s we’ve always been encouraged to participate in school sports and clubs. It is a loving place where we are all accepted for who we are. Leaving the St. Patrick’s community is going to be very hard. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and hopefully you will too!
Sophie Student
St. Patrick’s School has opened my mind to learn new things and to meet new people. St. Patrick’s is like family; all the people have great spirit and all the teachers are like second parents. The teachers are so understanding that I feel confident asking a question if I don’t understand something. My relationship with God has become stronger since the first day I came to St. Patrick’s.
