Physical fitness and sports at private schools

With only 18 years of life experience to his name, Bryn admits the closest to "the real world" he has been so far is on the sports field. It's where he expresses his competitive side, where he has learned to live his life with integrity both on and off the field and where he feels the best parts about him shine.


"It brings our your character, it teaches you about yourself. It's all much more than what takes place in a classroom," he says.

Bryn came to King's-Edgehill School in Windsor, Nova Scotia, three years ago, in search of a greater challenge in both academics and hockey. Ever since, he's continuously met the school's high expectations, balancing over ten hours of hockey, soccer or rugby practice a week with the demands of the IB Programme. He's had to make social sacrifices, but he says, besides the health benefits, the friends and life skills he has gained from his athletics are worth it.

According to deputy headmaster of King's-Edgehill Darcy Walsh every child must spend two hours a day at King's-Edgehill being physically active.

"The greatest contribution [playing sports] provides is that, at the end of the day, everyone goes away feeling like they're involved," he says. "They're fit, they're busy and they feel good about themselves."
