Teams and Clubs

We greatly appreciate the support of teachers who volunteer their time to lead and/or support extracurricular activities at Westwind. As soon as teachers decide which activities they would like to offer, these will be shared with students during morning announcements, then posted on the website.

Primary Blockball: 
Students in grades 1-3 are invited to play blockball in the gym at afternoon recesses. Students listen to the announcements to hear when their class is playing. Thank you to Mme Tracey for convening this league and to all those staff who are contributing to its supervision.  

The next intramural season for Junior students is expected to be Bordenball. Students have met to indicate their interest and should listen for announcements about upcoming games and tryouts. Thank you to Coaches Caron and Cesario for their work with the students.
