Bishop Alexander Carter Students Give Back to the Community

Bishop Carter CSS Mascot, “Gaitor” takes a well deserved rest after hyping up the crowd at the school’s annual “Battle of the Sexes” hockey game. Students, staff and families enjoy themselves at the event each year by cementing friendships and making new acquaintances. It also gives the school the opportunity to give something back to the community. This year the school donated $500 to the Northeastern Ontario Regional Cancer Centre.

May 1, 2008 - Every year Bishop Alexander Carter hockey players tie up their skates and head to the Centennial Arena for an all out “Battle of the Sexes” on the hockey rink. The annual tradition presents a great opportunity to build a sense of community by involving Bishop Carter’s feeder schools, St. Anne, St. Charles and St. Mary Catholic elementary schools. Students from these schools look forward to participating in this event as it is not only a lot of fun but also gives them some insight as to what life in high school is really like.

The atmosphere of the afternoon hockey game is always packed with excitement as the Bishop Carter students are given the opportunity to buy out of classes so they may attend the event. Bishop Carter Catholic Secondary School makes a point of recognizing every student who participates in athletics during this day and also takes this unique opportunity to acknowledge all the school’s teams, coaches and players in true Gator Spirit.

Proceeds from the event and money raised from other community basketball tournaments were donated to the Northeastern Ontario Regional Cancer Research Centre this year. Bishop Carter Catholic School teacher, Jean Gilles Laroque and Student Council President, Matt Harris presented a $500 cheque to Jacqueline Dell for Cancer Research.

Bishop Carter Catholic Secondary School would like to thank Mrs. Nelson and the B.A.C. staff for organizing this event.
