Skiing & Skating 2012-2013



In order to provide and develop physical fitness and appreciation for our Canadian winters, we have been fortunate in offering students from grades 4-8 opportunities to ski.  Students in grades 4 and 5 had 4 ski days at Centennial Ski Hill where they were able to develop the basic skills requisite for downhill skiing while our students in grades 6, 7 and 8 traveled to Hockley Valley for 4 ski days to expand their basic skills and become more proficient. Each student, regardless of skill level, was enrolled in structured lessons which built upon previous ones; thus by the time students reach grade 8, they will have had ample opportunity to become capable skiers. More importantly, it enables them to have an outdoor educational experience which they can choose to pursue throughout their lives.  



Students in grades 1, 2 and 3 had the opportunity to skate at Centennial Arena where they develop their skating skills throughout their primary years. Like our skiers, they improve their skills in a supportive environment with their teachers and parents.

 
One of the most gratifying aspects about these programs is to have students experience success through their efforts.  Similarly, it is wonderful to see our parents and grandparents attend these events and participate with their children, creating a feeling of familial support in the process.
 
Thank you for supporting our winter activities and thanks to all the teachers and parents who helped supervise the activities; your presence at the rink and the ski hills made the events run smoothly.
 
The experiences were memorable for our students. They persevered in all types of weather and were heartier for the experience; some, in fact, found out that cold can be fun!
