Athletics play a huge role in helping our students maintain healthy lifestyles.  Students at KPS are provided a wide variety of opportunities to learn new sports and participate in tournaments.  Students are encouraged to get active during recess as well.  They have access to winter equipment such as snowshoes as well as warm weather equipment like balls, skipping ropes and much more! 

As you can see below, intermediate students are busy all year taking part in sporting events of all kinds.  Every grade 7/8 student is invited to participate in tournaments as long as he/she is a student in good standing. Go Cougars!
