The 2012 edition of the Canadian Olympic School Program (COSP) was launched at Williamson Road Junior Public School in Toronto. London Olympic hopefuls Mary Spencer (Boxing) Martin Reader (Beach Volleyball) and Tobias Oriwol (Swimming) addressed approximately 600 eager students in grades Kindergarten to 6, as well as the teaching staff and parents.

The COSP has operated since 1987, and provides teachers and students across Canada with Olympic-themed classroom and school resources.

Various Canadian athletes are featured throughout the program. Three athletes chosen for this year, share their story about their passion, determination and journey in becoming Olympians. Jennifer Abel (Diving), Mary Spencer (Boxing) and Simon Whitfield (Triathlon) challenge the students to be their best and to adopt and maintain healthy active lifestyles. The major themes for 2012 include: healthy active living, leadership and respect.
