Olympic Speed Skater Kristina Groves to Visit St. Anne Catholic School Students

April 18, 2006 - Olympic Speed Skater, Kristina Groves will be visiting St. Anne Catholic School on April 21. The two-time Silver Medalist (1500 metre and Team Pursuit) has been pen pals with the Grade One and Two classes at St. Anne since the fall of this year.

Kristina has been corresponding with the students on a regular basis teaching them about her exciting sport, and her training. "She even took time out from her busy schedule during the Olympics to write to them," states grade 1/2 teacher Tania Lacroix.

"All eyes were glued to the television at school when she raced. The Grade One and Two classes were able to watch her live the day she captured the individual Silver Medal, other races were taped by their teacher, so they didn't miss a single race. Every morning during the Olympics, students gave a special news bulletin over the P.A. system, to update the school on how our Olympic athletes were doing."
