We wish them the best of luck showcasing our wonderful Mountview singing talent!

 

 

 

Our school choir is not the only opportunity for students to be involved in extracurricular activities at Mountview. We have many sports teams and clubs for students to be active in, some that we have always have and some new ones added this year based on student interest:

  • Dawe Run Club                    

  • Rugby Teams

  • Handball Teams

  • Basketball Teams

  • Cross-Country Ski Team

  • WE Day Club

 

    All grades:

  • Art Club

  • Braille Club

  • Eco Club

  • Boys 2 Men

  • Drama Club (just starting...stay tuned!)

  • Girl Power (stay tuned…)

 

We also have our grade 4-5 leadership jobs. Every grade 4 and 5 student gets a job!

  • Office Assistants, Astounding Announcers, Assembly Set-Up, Milk Sales, PE Team/Recess Leaders, Safety Patrol, Spirit Team, Tech Team, Eco Club, Welcome Committee

We aim to develop well-rounded students who are lifelong learners, good citizens and who model our values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.

Our grade 4/5 Recess Leaders (blue vests) are assigned one lunch recess a week to go and play with the grade 1,2,3 students.

They lead games, monitor soccer games and have a goal of trying to include everyone!

They are so proud to be leaders in this way and the younger children really look up to them!
