All students must be willing to participate in class activities!!!

We also do regular PE activities especially during bad weather!

As most of the activities we do are outdoors weather can have a big impact on what we can do!

All students are expected to be in PE gear most lessons.

It is very important for students to understand risk factors & be willing to follow directions, be sensible, be trustworthy.

Students not willing to do the above may not be eligible for trips or class activities due to risk factors.
