Reach for the Top - Provincial Champions

 

Kelvin's Senior Reach for the Top team won the Provincial Championship at the finals tournament hosted at Kelvin this year. Teams from Deloraine, Carberry, Winkler, the Maples, Saint Paul's and Saint John's-Ravenscourt all met their match against Kelvin's five players, who won every game they played that day.

To cap off their trophy winning performance, Kelvin's Reach for the Top team were invited to take part in a celebrity match at Winnipeg City Hall, featuring members of Winnipeg's media (including CBC, Metro and Free Press journalists) and Mayor Samuel Katz as Quiz Master. The result: another victory for École Kelvin's Reach for the Top titans of trivia!

Kelvin Reach Team members Sam A., John M. and Nigel S. (Grade 11) along with George P. and Ian S. (Grade 12) have been invited, along with coaches John Martens and Raymond Sokalski, to travel to Toronto for the National Finals of Reach for the Top to be taped and televised nationally, beginning on May 23rd, 2014.  

Kelvin's Reach Team is looking for sponsors to help cover the cost of their trip to Toronto for the Nationals; you can help! Contact rsokalski@wsd1.org to find out how you can "Send Kelvin to the National Finals"...
