Basketball - Our teams learn the basics of basketball technique, cooperation and good sportsmanship, while experiencing the community spirit of being part of a team, and pride in representing our school. During the season, which typically runs from January to March, our boys and girls teams play home and away games with other schools in the city. The teams are open to grade 6 students first and then grade 5 students if there is space. The philosophy is that everyone who wishes can join the teams and all receive equal playing time.
Badminton - Students learn basic skills and enjoy competing with one another. This activity, which is open to grade 3-6 students, usually takes place in the month of June. The students meet after school from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Native Dance Troupe - Students in grades 1-6 learn a variety of traditional Native dances after school throughout the year. Dancers have the opportunity to perform at celebrations and events throughout the community.
Spelling Club - This club is held during the noon hour in February. Grade 4-6 students are able to participate and the overall winner of our spelling competition represents our school at the Regional CanSpell National Spelling Bee Competition.
Choir - Grade 4-6 students are invited to join our school choir during noon recess once each week. The choir performs at school assemblies, celebrations and concerts. Currently, the choir is preparing to be part of a Holy Spirit "Spirit Sings" production.
Running Club - In conjuntion with Little Souls Kids' Marathon, École St. Mary's School is excited to offer our own running club. Students who sign up will receive a log sheet to record his/her weekly running mileage. For those students who go on to participate in the Kids' Marathon this mileage can also be used toward the mileage required for the marathon. Training runs take place on during activity time. The season runs from late March until mid-May. Sweats or shorts and proper running shoes are required.
