Recreational activity in elementary school is an important part of the day and it normally takes place at recess with other students. For many years Thomas D’Arcy McGee students have been playing on a large green field on school property at recess.

However, some students in the Developmental Education (DE) program use the assistance of wheelchairs or walkers and it is more difficult for them to play with other students in the school yard.
