Athletic

Students at Hawthorne have fun participating in extracurricular sports such as:

  • Cross-Country for Grades 3 through 7
  • Volleyball for Grades 6 and 7
  • Pinguard for Grade 6
  • Floor Hockey for Grade 7
  • Basketball for Grade 6 and Grade 7
  • Track and Field for Grade 4 to Grade 7

In classrooms, Action Schools materials are used to provide daily physical activities.  Dance and movement videos, music and equipment are also used to help students maintain active lifestyles. 

Twice a year, the SportFit assessment program evaluates flexibility, endurance, strength and agility in students to determine progress.

In regular gym classes gymnastics, volleyball, basketball, track and field, hockey stick handling, co-operative games, dance and creative movement activities are taught. 

Throughout the year we have theme or festive runs.  This year we have had the whole school participate in the Terry Fox Run, led by our Grade 7 students.  Plans are in place for other seasonal runs.

 In the spring, students participate in T-ball and baseball activities.  We have a Running Club in Spring where students from Grade 4 to Grade 7 run long distance several times a week.  Tennis Lessons are provided to varying grade levels.  Sportsmanship and teamwork are emphasized in all activities.
