Below is the information for the JOPE Grade 9’s (Feb. 15th) and Grade 8’s (February 22) who are attending the Winter Field Trip at Cypress Mountain (tubing):
Itinerary: busses arrive and we are leaving JO at 8:15am!!! Do not be late!
Activities: 10:00 – 1:20 activities (tubing and lunch). 1:30 pm leave Cypress Mnt.
Please check the weather report (604-419-7669) or via the website https://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/forecasts/ski-and-snow/british-columbia/cypress-mountain) for conditions up Cypress the night berfore so you can prepare accordingly.
CLOTHING: Warm winter clothing (layers are great) and waterproof jackets and footwear are important. This means wearing a toque, waterproof gloves or mitts, snow pants and winter boots. If you don’t have these, then rain boots with warm socks and a rain jacket and pants with warm layers underneath will work.
LUNCH/FOOD: There is a snack shack up there, but the prices are inflated and the line-ups can be too. We recommend packing your own lunch. There is a warming hut with tables for anyone to eat their lunch. We won’t be able to leave anything on the bus, so pack lightly in a backpack you can place with other packs in the snow. We recommend you bring an extra shirt, pants and socks to wear on the bus ride down the mountain.
Don’t forget water in a water bottle.

Welcome returning and new students to John Oliver Secondary! This is the front page of the PE Website.
Anything and everything regarding Physical & Health Education at JO can be found on this site and/or your teacher’s blog page.
A reminder that during the first couple of weeks of school you will want to:
- Have appropriate PE Clothing/gym strip which you CHANGE into before class (t-shirt, shorts or sweat pants and running shoes). We encourage you to join the JO community and purchase a JO issued top (Cheques payable to John Oliver Secondary). Clothing is available through your individual PE teacher.
- Have a secure lock for the changing room to lock your belongings during PE class. This is a MUST as theft from the lockers can happen and has happened in the past. You may purchase a $9 lock from your PE teacher.
- Have downloaded a copy of the course outline and curriculum schedule for your own personal information. (Have a binder dedicated to PE). Outlines and curriculum are posted above (in the pages sections).
- Have visited the PE Website as well as your Teacher’s Blog (where applicable).
We are looking forward to a great year!
