The Royals Olympics

DEFINITION – What is it?
On our 18th year, and at the time of the pandemic, we would like to bring together our school community, live our motto, “Oui Je Peux,” and chant our mantra louder - “Yes I Can!” through the launching of the ROYALS OLYMPICS.

The ROYALS OLYMPICS is a year-long school event following the House System and Rewards, which is a tradition that originated from England. Similar to our Intramurals, the Royals Olympics connects all grade levels within the school (PS to Grade12), giving students an opportunity to further develop skills and experiences in order to become confident individuals and outstanding members of the school.

The Royals Olympics provides enjoyable and competitive events that encourage students to develop the AVID. As students take this challenge to participate in academics, sports, cultural and other co-curricular activities, they may gain merit points, both individually and collectively for their House. This in turn, will promote healthy competition and allow a sense of mentoring and leadership to build up between the older and the younger students. Through positive interaction across levels, student relationships improve. Children of all ages feel a sense of family and belongingness. Positive peer relations get students involved in activities in order to support their house and students gain a sense of pride in being able to contribute. The further purpose of each house is to guide and support the academic, social, emotional, and personal development of each student.

All students from PS to Grade 12 will be divided into 5 houses namely:
The Dukes
The Marquesses
The Earls
The Viscounts
The Barons

Each house will consist of:
House Mentors - teachers who take a leadership role
House Captain/s - students who may be assigned in particular tasks
House Members - students across levels (PS to Grade 12)

The ROYALS OLYMPICS gives the children the opportunity to:
- work to help each other build confidence through collaboration
- persevere through a task
- take risks as a group to achieve a common goal
- learn to be enquiring and creative in a safe environment

Throughout the year, students earn House Points for their positive engagement and
participation in class, during assemblies, during events/activities, and in competitions
inside and outside school.
