Athletics & Physical Education

Physical Education

The health and physical education curriculum provides students with learning opportunities that will help them make positive decisions about all aspects of their health and encourage them to lead healthy, active lives. Students develop an understanding of the importance of physical fitness, health, and well-being, and the factors that contribute to them; personal commitment to daily vigorous physical activity and positive health behaviours; and the skills and knowledge to participate in physical activities throughout their lives.


St. Thomas Aquinas offers countless opportunities to participate on competitive or recreational athletic teams. We participate in many sports with competitions across Ontario. Our athletes participate in Kawartha Athletics, Central Ontario Secondary School Athletics (COSSA) and Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSSA) competitions. View each organization's website for eligibility, directors, conveners, transfer policy, and schedules.

We encourage all of our students to reap the benefits of being physically active every day, which includes improved concentration abilities and collaboration skills. Players, coaches, spectators and referees agree to follow our Board's Code of Conduct.
