Primary Students Try To Defy Gravity At St. Anne School

J. T. Giambattista, a Gr. 1 English student at St. Anne School in Hanmer, works on gaining his balance and defying gravity as he practices learning how to skate during a recent outing with his classmates.

February 17, 2012 - Walking and being able to stand tall are activities the students at St. Anne School participate in everyday. A recent outing to Centennial Arena made doing so just a bit harder for some of the primary students within the Sudbury Catholic Board.

Armed with their skates, helmets, and a lot of padding from their winter snowsuits, classes from the Hanmer school took to the ice with their classmates and family members. During the next hour, some children practiced the basics of trying to stand and move on skates while a few more daring students moved from one end of the rink to the other. Who knew that trying to move on skates could be so tricky? All in all, the students enjoyed the physical activity and the pride that comes from knowing they were mastering the art of defying gravity. "Do we have to leave?" Those were the words that even the youngest children were asking. Their teacher's responses, "We'll be back!"
