Bedford has a longstanding tradition of offering unique programming to further engage Bedford’s young minds at the lunch hour. From drama to robotics, there is something for everyone and for all grades. Here is a sampling of what will be offered for 2017/18. Please check back often to see what’s new.

Lunchtime Intramurals

Intramurals are fun, inclusive and provide something for everyone! Bedford Park Lunchtime Intramurals are designed to get children excited about participating in physical activity! Intramurals offer students an opportunity to participate in many sports and activities on a recreational level at lunchtime.  All skill levels are welcome.  All that is needed is a desire to play.  Intramural sports will be offered to students in Grades 1 to 8 at different times in the school year. Participation is optional. Intramurals take place during lunch periods in the gymnasium.  Grade 7-8 students will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills by overseeing/refereeing the intramural programme (with teacher assistance).
