Time to get your game face on!
At Sacred Heart, physical activity through play and sport is an important part of our daily life. In addition to intramurals, we typically offer recreational and competitive sports, and both have put our Sharks on the proverbial athletics map in recent years.
Healthy, active living is at the core of the 小学’s physical literacy program. 通过我们的项目, every child is challenged with a dynamic mix of structured physical education and free outdoor playtime. 在健身房, typically all grade levels receive three PE periods per week; and on the playground, they enjoy three recesses daily that include structured and free play on our state-of-the-art playground, 在我们的Gaga坑里, and at basketball courts and other designated sports areas.
T在这里 are typically a number of seasonal co-curricular activities to choose from, including Running Club, 空手道, and skating at the nearby Emera Oval. 我们的一年, weekly intramural program for Grades 2-6, encourages friendly competition in sports such as 足球, 排球, 和篮球.

Our faculty excel at supporting those who may have to miss classes to train, compete, and travel. As a result of this tailored approach, we count in our alum community three Olympians, a number of U SPORTS and NCAA scholar-athletes, and national and international elite performers in swimming, 体操, 划, 运行, 和帆船.

I have had the opportunity to be on many different teams over my years at SHSH and every one of those opportunities has taught me important skills that I will carry with me through life.
