Physical Education

 

Our changing world makes it even more important to ensure that our students have sufficient structured and unstructured opportunities for exercise. The school day at SBS provides a balanced approach to regular physical activity. Every student enjoys 60 minutes of supervised (unstructured) free play on our spacious playground each day. This playground time is beloved by the children, and offers a kind of physical activity that is both child-directed and social. A great deal of learning takes place on our playground.

To complement the free active time, Sunnybrook offers a full Athletics program. Our program includes Baseball, Basketball, Dance, Martial Arts, Rock Climbing, Skating, Track, and much more. SBS students attend Phys. Ed. classes 3 days out of 5. Beginning in grade 3, students participate in various activities off-site, to enhance the program. A shuttle bus enables them to maximize use of time for these classes and to use facilities in the community to enrich our program. Within the Phys Ed program we also strive to provide a balance, with students participating in a combination of team and individual activities. This allows for individual student preferences as well as skill development throughout the program.

  • Badminton
