NO SKATING CLUB FOR THE 2020 2021 SCHOOL YEAR

SKATING CLUB  2019 2020

Skating Club is sliding into it's 2020 season! The club is open to Grades 4-6 students and runs throughout the months of January and February during noon hours. Students eat lunch with the supervising teachers in the gym before practices. Helmets (CSA approved), hockey gloves or ski/leather mitts are required for all practices. The school can provide a helmet to those students who do not have. We recommend students bring their own helmet as we have a limited amount to borrow. Students must attend all practices otherwise they may not be allowed to continue.

Practice dates (weather permitting): January 14, 15, 21, 28, 29 and February 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 & 26.  


SKATING CLUB 2018 2019

Our Skating Club has come to a close once again! After some challenging weather this year and a lot of cancellations the club still had a successful year. The program ended on March 7th, at the 2019 Speed Skating Event held at the Bell MTS Centre, that involves around 450 students from 24 WSD schools. A big thank you goes out to Ms. Basaraba, Ms. Bui, Ms. Vasvary and Mrs. McKelvey for all their hard work and efforts in getting the students ready for this event and supporting them at their practices.

Students have worked very hard during their practices and were thrilled to skate on the 'big' ice at the arena.

We would like to thank the students for their commitment to the club and to parents who supported the program by allowing after school practices and attending the speed skating event and cheering on the students.

Of course, we would also like to thank the staff especially Ms. Basaraba, Ms. Bui, Ms. Vasvary and Ms. McKelvey, for their involvement in the Skating Club and all their hard work and dedication to the students. Also, much appreciation to the Maples Arena for accomodating our skaters on short notice for practices when other locations were unaccessible.
