Lunch Time Intramural Program
Monday to Thursday from 12:00- 12:25
This program offers students the opportunity to participate in activities to extend our Fun, Fitness and Fair play philosophy at Terrace Ridge School. Activities are held on the soccer field in the fall and spring and in the gym when weather is a factor. Students are placed on teams to encourage peer interactions and sportsmanship as recognition is given for participation during their scheduled intramural time. There are two divisions- grade 3 & 4 and grades 5 & 6.
Each fall Terrace Ridge School sends one team of girls and one team of boys (four players per team) to the Wolfcreek Golf Tournament. In order to become part of this team, players must bring a signed scorecard from a golf course of the year they are wishing to participate. Scores from a Par 3 course are not acceptable. Team members are then selected based upon the cores turned in by students. This is a Junior High event; however, students in grade 6 may participate on this team if numbers warrant.

This team is available to all students in grades 5 & 6 during September and October each year. Practice sessions run every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to approximately 3:30 p.m. Participants are asked to run with the supervisor 3 or the 4 days.

The students train for the track & field events during school allotted time.

Student volunteers and their teacher work at Terrace Ridge School with all grade 7 students to introduce each event to ensure proper technical development and safety requirements. Students compete in a full day track & field meet at the Ecole Lacombe Junior High School at the end of May and qualifiers from this meet then proceed to compete at the Wolf Creek Track & Field meet in Ponoka in early June. All meets are held on a school day.
