We will not be offering all Fall Sports, and we cannot predict how rules might change in the future. We know that we will not have Swimming until next school year. If that changes, we will let you know. 

We will have some Clubs going; see below.

The BC School Sport "Return to Sport Plan" is one of the important resources in our KG planning. It is, however, important to note that the VSB has additional requirements and restrictions beyond those of BCSS: related to school facilities use, spectators and use of outside (non-VSB staff) coaches or sponsors. 

Currently, no outside coaches or spectators are permitted in our planning. All of our KG Athletics activity will involve monitoring of safe social distancing, hand cleaning before and after all activity, cleaning of equipment at the start of all activity, cleaning of used spaces between activities, and staff/student wearing of masks before and after sporting activity.  

While inter-school competition is currently not permitted in-person, there may be a possibility of virtual competitions in sports such as cross country running. 

All other athletic activity (except regular PE classes) at KG will likely be of a training and practice nature, conducted entirely within the school student cohort. Any intra-school competition would have to be in a sport that is easily socially distanced during the game.

Our Athletic Director Mr. Pannun is working very hard with staff and students to evaluate our capacity to offer safe, in school return to athletic activity.

I will post more information as I receive it, here on the school website.


CLUBS:

Drama: 

There will be drama club this year. While we cannot do a live play with an audience, the plan is to produce a movie in the fall/winter. In the spring, we would be connected with professional actors from Bard on the Beach (via online means) and creating a new version/adaptation of a Shakespeare play.  If you are interested in acting, stage management, sound/costume/set/lights design, video editing etc. you are welcome to join this club! Please sign up on the KG THEATRE bulletin board outside the drama room (room 143) OR email Ms Init at hinit@vsb.bc.ca for more information. All grades and levels of experience are welcome!

Interact Club is running, email or see Ms Kam in the library.

Earth Club is running, email or see Ms Lin.

Hear 4 Peers is running, see Mr. Godfrey.

More to come...
