Extra, Extra…Extra Curricular

Cross Country

This Fall, many Allenby students participated in a number of extra curricular activities. Our Cross Country teams did an outstanding job at our first meet and many students qualified for the Conference Finals. We then had 12 runners qualify and compete at the City Championships, and our Lions ran proudly.

Congratulations to all the runners who joined the team and your teamwork produced some amazing results. The Grade 5 Boys and Grade 5 Girls teams both finished 2 nd overall in the North Conference and the Grade 5 Girls team placed 3 rd overall in the City Finals.

Victoria came 3rd overall (in and the following students placed in the top runners in the city of Toronto respectively.

We had 2 Girls Touch Football teams and 2 Boys Touch Football teams compete in tournaments in October and they all demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship and determination. The Girls teams finished as Conference Finalists and we’re awarded a banner that will be placed in our gymnasium.

One of our Boys teams advanced to the Conference Playoffs but were defeated in the semi finals by a very talented team from John Ross Robertson. Regardless of their disappointment, the team held their heads up high and kept giving your best till the end!

Thank you to our volunteers

Thank you to Ms. Donovan, Ms. Levitt, Ms. Hatcher and Ms. Ching for all your help with Cross Country and to all the parents for helping encourage your children to attend practice, cheering athletes on, and driving students to games and meets.  We truly appreciate your help and support.


Next opportunities

The Fall/Winter season now runs until the Holiday Break. Any Gr 5/6 Girls who are interested in playing basketball or Gr 5/6 Boys who would like to play Volleyball should listen to announcements next week for the opportunity to attend developmental practices. Once the teachers running these extra curricular activities assess the level of student interest and skills, they may choose to commit to playing other schools or offer a House League experience at Allenby. In January the sports will switch and the Boys are offered Basketball and Girls can try Volleyball if they like.

If you ever have any inquiries about athletics feel free to email mark.barta@tdsb.on.ca or risa.levitt@tdsb.on.ca.

Proper Footwear for Physical Education Classes

As we move inside to the gym it is essential for students to have proper footwear to participate in physical activities. It is unsafe for all students if boots, slippers or sandals are worn in the gym.

Please ensure your child has running shoes at school so that they do not have to miss class and sit out during Physical Education classes.

Thank you for your assistance and support.
