Toronto Catholic District School Board

Co-curricular Activities
 
In every school community, children enjoy a variety of interesting activities to challenge them not only on an intellectual level, but on a physical and social level as well. Students are offered the opportunity to develop and enhance skills in various environments outside the classroom. The Toronto Catholic Schools Athletic Association (elementary schools) and the Toronto District College Athletic Association TDCAA (secondary schools) offer students a number of different sport activities to allow them to compete within an inter-school athletic program. Students are also involved in a variety of other extracurricular activities that include science fairs, music festivals, speech and essay competitions, chess tournaments and intramural athletic events.
Out of school experiences

Education beyond the classroom is a vital and popular part of every school program. Educational experiences outside of the classroom are an extension of, an enrichment of, and a complement to, the classroom portion of the student’s educational program. Children take field trips to such stimulating places as the Ontario Science Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Art Gallery of Ontario. Intermediate and secondary students have the opportunity to spend time at one of six residential outdoor educational field centres used by the Toronto Catholic District School Board. These excursions combine outdoor education experiences with the community living program, a component of the religious education curriculum. There are also opportunities for schools to engage in full-day programs for all grades at Black Creek Pioneer Village and Kortright Centre for Conservation.
