KES Coaches in the Community

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 24, 2017 7:04:00 AM

At King’s-Edgehill school, we are fortunate to have dedicated and capable coached running our many sport teams.  Many King’s-Edgehill School coaches are receiving important recognition and opportunities for training at the highest levels, outside the realm of our athletic offerings

As mentioned in a previous article about outstanding KES coaches, we are very proud of our KES coaching team. Last year Karen Jones, a KES Senior School teacher and biathlon head coach as well as head of our equestrian programme, was awarded the NSSAF Outstanding Contribution Award for her coaching at KES. Similarly, senior school faculty member Phillip Hadley has coached the KES Track and Field Team to the Provincial Championships and was accepted into the highest level of coaching certification available worldwide.  Mr. Hadley also coaches our cross country running team in the fall.

Outstanding KES coaches

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 29, 2016 7:39:00 AM

At King’s-Edgehill School all of our teachers are also coaches. While this requires a lot of time and sacrifice from these faculty members, they find great reward in getting to know students both in and out of the classroom and seeing these same students thrive long after they stop being their teacher and coach.

Ultimate Frisbee at KES

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 14, 2016 7:00:00 AM

To ensure every King’s-Edgehill student leads a healthy and active lifestyle, all students are required to participate in sports every day after school. Students are also required to change up their sport based on the term. To keep the variety fresh and to appeal to everyone’s diverse tastes in sports, we offer more than 25 different seasonal sports throughout the year!

Our focus on sports comes from the belief that young people who participate in sports gain more advantages over those who do not participate, including higher overall GPA achievement, higher Math and English testing scores, fewer school absences, and higher levels of enrolment in university.

Dance at King's-Edgehill School

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 13, 2016 6:30:00 AM

King’s-Edgehill School is excited that we will again be including dance instruction in our already robust Athletics Programme.

As you know, KES students are required to participate in a chosen sport on a daily basis. We offer more than twenty different options—some competitive and some non-competitive but all with the intention of helping your child reach his or her personal best. 

Study after study has shown the benefits of exercise for people of all ages, and yet, according to an annual report card released by Active Healthy Kids Canada, Canadian children and youth received a dismal “D minus”

 

for overall physical activity levels. Only 4% of 12 to 17-year-olds in Canada meet the recommended guidelines of 60 minutes daily of moderate to vigorous exercise.

Active Health Kids Canada also reported that 82% of parents surveyed want their education system to place more importance on providing quality physical education. So we know that parents take this matter as seriously as we do.
