Around The Division

PLRD will be implementing an elementary sports league for grades 4-6 in volleyball and basketball to increase awareness of school sports while building upon the skillset of students in these sports.  Mass participation and skill acquisition will be the focus of this initiative.

School fitness rooms around the division are now complete and in operation.  Each school is equipped with appropriate resistance training equipment that will enhance physical education classes and the Health and Wellness focal point of the division.  In communities where there are no public gym facilities, these spaces will be open for public use.
