Physical Education

Westmount School is proud to provide all students with a Quality Physical Education Program.  This activity will be guided and instructed by a Physical Education Specialist and/or their classroom teacher.  Students in grades K-6 are not required to change clothes daily, but have the option of purchasing school gym strip.  The students will need specific runners for gym (non-marking soles).  If a need does arise for this age group to change, arrangements with the teacher(s) can be made. 

Students in grades 7-9 must change and wear mandatory school gym strip.  This gym strip is strictly for gym and any other activities related to P.E. classes.  Cost for this gym strip will be a part of the student fees for students.  Parents and students are requested to keep the student’s gym strip clean, appropriately labeled and readily available for daily use. 

Throughout the year, all grades will be involved in off campus activities (snowshoeing, walking/hiking, cross country running etc.).  These activities are an important part of the physical education program, and participation is expected. 

Students who have been injured or are ill must supply their teacher with a medical note for prolonged absences from activity (greater than 3 days). In such cases, an alternative program may be required on the part of the student.
