The goal of the Physical Education and Athletics program at OJCS is to instill a life-long commitment to healthy living. Students in kindergarten to grade five have Phys. Ed. twice a week and students in grades 6 to 8 have Phys. Ed. three times a week. In addition to structured sports and athletics, units from the Ontario Health Curriculum are taught.
Whether you’re new to the sport or already have experience on the field, students of all levels are encouraged to join our sport teams. Our athletes practice on our school facilities and participate in games and competitions against other schools that belong to the Ottawa Independent Schools Athletic Association (OISAA). The athletics program promotes good sportsmanship, team building, leadership and a positive, enjoyable approach to physical activity. We have dedicated team of coaches on staff that train students in soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country and badminton.
