S.C.C. Hosts Feeder Schools for Winter Carnival Fun

"Team China" wait their turn to sing their cheer in the gym at St. Charles College to kick off their Winter Carnival involving Grade 8 students from all 5 feeder schools.

February 23, 2010 - On Tuesday, February 23, Grade 8 students from St. Raphael, St. John, St. Paul, St. David and Pius XII were bussed to St. Charles College to take part in their annual Winter Carnival. Upon arrival, all of the students were brought into the gym and are divided up into mixed teams and, in a tribute to the Olympics, were assigned a country. The first challenge for each group was to come up with a cheer for their country and then had to perform it in front of the entire crowd. The leadership class was the official host of the 5 feeder school students and set up many different activities for all of the groups to participate in including ball hockey, dodgeball, relay races and bocker (a combination of basketball and soccer). Patty Mardero, Principal of St. Charles College explained that it was a really great day of winter fun challenges for the students. “It is such a positive day on two different levels.” stated Mardero. “First, it is a great way for the Grade 8 students from the feeder schools to get to know each other before they start here in grade nine, and secondly, it is also an opportunity for S.C.C. staff to meet with Grade 8 staff for transitional activities.” Twenty teams in total participated in the day's events.
