CTK Religious Programming

All classes use the religion program called We Believe.  In addition, we offer students the opportunity to participate in monthly masses, class masses and retreats to live out their faith.  These are aimed to deepen their faith and relationship with God.  Students in grades 5-8 can volunteer to train as alter servers.  The House Team Virtue Program implemented this year strives to have students working together to learn about Catholic Virtues in a cross grade group format.  The program has included outreach projects such as Postcards for Peace and a sock drive for Siloam Mission.  As a school, we also strive to help our community by collecting food items on a monthly basis for Winnipeg Harvest, collecting gifts at Christmas time for Rossbrook House, collecting money for Holy Childhood and helping with fundraisers within our school community for the Haviland Family.  These activities build a sense of compassion, empathy and caring for those around us.

Extra Curricular Programing

There are a variety of programs for students to access across the grades.   These encourage the development of different skills and interests in students across the grades.  They bring students together for a common purpose and to have fun together.  Lastly, they foster a sense of responsibility and belonging when students can choose what they want to participate in within the safety and security of the school.  Some examples are:

  • Social Justice Committee
  • Choir
  • Student Council
  • Running Club
  • Origami Club
  • Recycling
  • Lego Club
  • Intramurals
  • Chess Club
  • Lunch Monitors
  • Mad Science
  • Art Club
  • K’nex club

Sports Programming

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 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, and track and field.
