Heart of a Lion!

160 Athletes 
20 Teams

6 Championship wins!

The Heart of a Lion award is presented annually to students who represent our school in athletics with PRIDE. These athletes show admirable qualities such as sportsmanship, teamwork, positivity, persistence, skill, communication, passion, commitment, hard work, improvement, great work ethic, and more.

Today, we came together to acknowledge our athletes for the strong showing this year. While we are competitive and like to win, our greatest pride comes from the awards we receive for good sportsmanship.

Last Thursday, the Grade 11 Healthy and Active Living Girls Physical Education class embarked on their year-end trip. To conclude the course, the students learn about hiking, leave-no-trace camping, and other wilderness essentials like tarp building. It was a fantastic trip, with everyone enjoying the hike and sweeping views of the lake and surrounding glaciers.

Monday and Tuesday was the Junior Outdoor Education trip. Ten Grade 10 students went out for two days of hiking and a night of camping at Cheakamus Lake. The students surprised themselves with how strong they were carrying all their essentials, and with how much fun they could have in the wilderness. 

Overall, it was an excellent close to the year for the Outdoor Education program, which has included two retreats, and over 40 participants taking part in five overnight outdoor experiences.
Shabbat Shalom!
