Teams and Clubs

Our students enjoy many sports activities such as soccer, cross-country running, intramural games, and track and field. In addition, the students can join the choir, the reading club, the games club, the dance club, the computer club and the Friends of the Forest club. The activities can vary from year to year and depend on the interest and commitment of students, staff, and parents.

Our Grade Five students have numerous leadership opportunities such as lunchroom monitors, milk monitors, reading buddies, office volunteers and Friends of the Forest mentors.

Our Student Council plans and supports special events and activities such as monthly spirit days and special fundraisers.

Some of the clubs and sports activities that are happening this year in the Forest are: 

Choir (both primary and junior)
Cross-country running
Track and Field
Me to We
