Extra-curricular activities enhance the skills and knowledge learned through academics and significantly impact school life for our students. Participation in athletics, clubs and other school events helps our students develop valuable social skills that strengthen the school culture and contribute to an enriched learning environment in our schools.

We recognize and value the voluntary work by board staff and community members that allow these programs to succeed and enhance our students' learning experiences outside the classroom.

The Elementary Sports Council is the governing body for elementary athletics within Thames Valley. The sports council provides opportunities for student athletes via participatory and competitive activities to enhance learning, self awareness, cooperative behaviour and physical development.
