The Physical Education/Health program at Bernie Wolfe Community School is designed to provide students with planned and balanced programming to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for physically active and healthy lifestyles. The physical education portion of the curriculum is taught by Mr. Loewen and the health portion is taught by several middle year classroom teachers.
In order to provide students with a balanced program, students receive three periods of instruction a school cycle with activities that are chosen from curriculum based physical activity categories. The activities that are chosen will give students the opportunity to acquire knowledge and practice skills related to movement, fitness, safety and fair play.
Students are expected to come prepared for gym class. This means wearing appropriate footwear for participation in physical activity. Appropriate footwear is considered running shoes (no crocs, skater shoes, slip-ons, high heels, etc.). Middle year students are expected to change into a pair of shorts/sweats and a t-shirt. These clothes should be different from the ones students wear to school and spend all day wearing in class.
The intramural program provides an enrichment opportunity for all students to develop game skills in a competitive but non-threatening environment. All middle year students are invited to come down to the gym at on assigned days of the school cycle to participate in different activities throughout the school year. The grade 5 program is run by Ms. Kjernisted.
Extra Curricular Teams/Events
Extra curricular teams are offered to all students in middle years and require a high level of commitment and dedication. It is the expectation that students who choose to participate in these programs make a strong effort to come out to all practices, Grade 6 practices occur during noon hour (11:35-12:05) and after school for grade 7 to 8 students.
