Students are encouraged to get active during recess, on intramural teams and on our school athletic teams. Participation on Grade 7 and 8 teams is determined through tryouts and criteria established by the coach. The students chosen to represent the school on these teams must be students in good standing. Team shirts and equipment used by the teams are to be properly cared for and returned to the school immediately following each sporting event.

Congratulations to the EDPS 2013 Cross Country Team that represented Eganville & District Public School at the cross country meet at Logo's Land and Hugli's this fall.  They demonstrated perseverance, dedication and superb effort.  Way to go EDPS!
