In addition to the Athelet of the Week, students are encouraged to participate in the KES Captain’s Council, which met and discuss the role confidence plays in leadership. The Captain’s Council is made up of those student-athletes selected as captains for their respective varsity team here at KES and is advised by teachers Mr. Kim Walsh, Mme. Karen Jones, and Mr. Rory Campbell.

The group, which first began two years ago, meets bi-weekly to discuss topics relating to leadership in the context of athletics and sport. This year the group is working through a ten-module programme which is widely used in both high schools and universities in Canada and the USA. The group members come from a variety of different backgrounds and experience in both sport and leadership, and their individual experiences often form the basis of our discussions.

Athletics is one of the four pillars of a King's-Edgehill education, which is why we offer three seasons of various sports and athletic programmes. Download our Athletics PhotoJournal to discover which of the over 20 different sports your child will love.
