Canada Dominates The World in Hockey!

Today all the classes took part in 6 goal hockey in the gym competing for their assigned countries. The primary classes played soccer instead, but took part in a shootout with sticks.

At the end of the day the intermediates took part in a game of The World (intermediate students) versus Canada (the teachers).  Of course Canada dominated.  It was a great day of fun!

Although we will be assigning students to a different country to follow the Winter Olympics, we know our hearts are truly Canadian.  We had lots of red and white today to celebrate Canada as we prepare for the upcoming Olympic Games.
