With just a few weeks left of school, activities are dwindling down so students can prepare for exams, summatives, and quizzes or tests that will finish off final units of courses.
In wrapping up with sports for the 2018-2019 school year, Jack Link travelled to Guelph to compete at OFSAA in the 1500-meter race on Thurs., June 6. He came 8th in his heat, and 16th overall, with a personal best of 4 minutes and 27 seconds. Great job Jack! The girls softball team went on the diamond to show their stuff! They lost to St. Joes 5-4 but had a 3-point comeback from the original 5-1 score. The next two games were successful, winning 17-4 against CCVS, and they defeated Seaway in the B final with a score of 18-1. Fantastic job team!
The current Grade 8 WEB team hosted a “Summer Olympics” event for the Grade 7s and Grade 6s who will be attending NDIS in the fall. There were games such as Water Balloon Toss, Huckle Buckle, Crazy Baseball, and Tug of War. It was a great day for all students who participated and warmed the Grade 6s up to the idea of being in middle school!
At Leadership Camp on June 3,4, and 5, each team won an award after the trip was over. Team Black won “Team with the most points”, Team Blue won “Best Enthusiasm”, Team Red won “Best Group Cheer”, and Team White won “Best Dressed”. Good job teams! Even though the weather was rainy and chilly most of the time, everyone participated to their fullest abilities!
