Students Enjoy Floor Hockey Play Day

ntermediate students from grades four to seven were thinking “he shoots, he scores” instead of math and spelling on Friday, April 15.

Intermediate students from grades four to seven were thinking “he shoots, he scores” instead of math and spelling on Friday, April 15. They were playing in the school district’s intermediate floor hockey play day, an event held in five venues: The Gospel Chapel gymnasium, Northside Christian School, W.L. McLeod Elementary, Sinkut View Elementary and Evelyn Dickson Elementary.

In addition to the in-town schools, students travelled from Mapes Elementary, Fort Fraser Elementary, Fraser Lake Elementary Secondary School, Sowchea Elementary,  David Hoy Elementary and Nakalbun Elementary to participate.  

Many parents, teachers, and administrators invested their time to coach, supervise, and organize their schools for the event.

School district staff who made a difference were as follows: Wade Fitzpatrick, Erica Adams, and Carrie Wiebe from Mapes; Glen Antoski, Sam Lazar and Laura McConnell from McLeod; David Wlasitz at Northside; Mark Gauthier at Fraser Lake; Margaret Matthews at Fort Fraser; Andrew Mulroy at Nakalbun; Dawn Godard at Sowchea; and Craig Houghton at David Hoy.

Special thanks to Jill Haskett at Evelyn Dickson for arranging the high school volunteers to referee games at all locations and for organizing her school for the tournament.

Grant Gray at Mapes Elementary organized the tournament and made up the draw. 

All of the volunteer secondary students performed very well as referees. Thanks go to the following NVSS students for their assistance: Chris Byron, Derek Hunsaker, Brett Boivin, Becca Rodts, Kaitlyn Loewen, Lara Lack, Cam Brown, Paula Weber, Keitara Hirano, Cierra Verduzco, Al Burke, Julia Steinbach, Dexter Mackay, Cam Olson and Ben Burke.  The floor hockey play day has become an annual school district sporting event since 2009. Participating students have had great fun and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship.
