St. Bernadette Olympic Day Celebration

Some of St. Bernadette's Olympic winners show off their medals as they stand with Olympic torchbeaer Mr. McGibbon.

March 1, 2010 - On February 26, 2010, the students and staff of St Bernadette showed Sudbury how much they "believe" as the Olympic Spirit was alive and well at St Bernadette School. Their Olympic themed play day was planned by Chantal Therrien, the Grade 5/6 teacher who felt that that having this event was important to "promote team spirit within the school." Teams were created to represent 10 different countries and the kids made flags and cheers with a parade of nations. Some of the games the students participated in included curling, bobsled, hockey, luge and biathlon. As a special treat, the students had the opportunity to listen to Mr. McGibbon who was an Olympic torchbearer talk about his experience. At the end of the day, there was an awards presentation and, best of all, hot chocolate to warm up all of the students. Nicole Snow, Principal of the school felt the day was a great one for all of her students. "The Olympics brings with it a spirit of peace." said Snow. "It teaches kids fair play, as well as pride and friendship - really great lessons for them to learn."
