At Saint Pius X we pride ourselves on offering a variety of extracurricular activities that meet the needs and interests of our students.
Grade 7 students are welcome to join the Art Club. Students come together to share in an appreciation of visual art activities. Students have opportunities to look at various artist styles while examining art elements, techniques, and medias. Past projects have included practice in the use of watercolours, acrylics, paper, and mixed media. Each year the Grade 7 group puts together their best pieces of art and creates a calendar that is sold to the community. Proceeds from the calendars go to the Grade 7 Fundraising Campaign. This is a club where a willingness to try is the most important skill required.
Guardian Gazette, School Newspaper
Students at Saint Pius X publish “The Guardian Gazette” newspaper, which highlights all the wonderful learning opportunities, activities and events throughout the year. The Guardian Gazette is published two times per year and is open to all students at the school.
Roman Catholic Challenge is an exciting, fast paced “Jeopardy” style challenge game open to students in Grades 5-7. Teams of students respond to questions about the Catholic faith.
Readers are Leaders
“Readers Are Leaders” is a fun, competitive, reading trivia program open to students in Grade 5-7. Students participate by reading six novels that have been selected by CISVA librarians. Students meet regularly to discuss the novels and create questions in preparation for local and regional competitions.
