Physical Education classes are taught according to the Provincial Physical Education/Health Education Curriculum.  The K-3 curriculum is based on learning skills directed towards: Transport Skills, Manipulation Skills and Balance Skills.  The K-8 curriculum is also based on the five strands of physical education assessment, which are Movement, Fitness Management, Personal and Social Management, Safety and Healthy Lifestyle Practices.

The grade 4-6 curriculum is the time sport specific skills are taught, and where the students focus more on a selected sport.  The main sports in this age group are soccer, volleyball, basketball and badminton, but other sports are introduced and taught in this age group as well.  The grades 4-6 also learn the skills of track and field, and attend the MCSSA Catholic Schools Track and Field Meet in June at the University of Manitoba.

The grade 7-8 program goes into even more detail into what was taught in the grade 4-6 level, and this age level competes in the Manitoba Catholic Schools Athletic Association (MCSSA) league with approximately 15 other Catholic and Christian schools.  Students compete in league volleyball, basketball, badminton, track and field and soccer.

School programs are not just limited to on school site:  the 7 and 8’s go on an annual Ski Trip, all of the classes go glow bowling during Catholic Schools Week, and we have a Learn To Skate Program for grades 2 and 3: as some examples of other programming that is offered.

In the twelve years Christ the King School has been a member of the MCSAA, the students have accomplished many successes. Our girls volleyball and basketball program is one of the strongest in the league, as the girls in 2010-11 won the school’s first league championship banner in volleyball.

Most recently, both Competitive Girls volleyball team won the third place game at the league championships.

Since junior high (grades 7 and 8) was added ten years ago, many league accomplishments have been made:

  • Three time MCSAA girls volleyball league champions (2010/11, 2011/12, 2015/16)
  • Two time MCSAA Finalists (2nd) girls’ volleyball (2011/12, 2012/13)
  • Three time MCSAA girls’ soccer champions (2011, 2013, 2016)
  • Three time MCSAA basketball Semi-Finalists (3rd) (2011/12, 2012/13, 2010/11)

These are all quite great accomplishments, done in such a short time period. I know as their Physical Education Specialist, I am very proud of the students for their hard efforts. Even if no tournaments or banners were won at all, they are all champions for just stepping onto the gym court.

There are also league sanctioned programs for the grade 6 students in the Developmental League, which focuses largely on “learning” the sport, and not so much as the result on the scoreboard.
