This year we have two teams headed off to the Odyssey of the Mind BC Qualifying Tournament this Saturday, in Coquitlam. The students and coaches have put in many months of hard work, preparation and practises. We wish them the best of luck! Several school basketball teams are playing in season ending tournaments over the next week. Good luck to all of those teams. Thank you to all of the staff members and parents who have helped out with coaching, reffing and driving, we would not be able to offer such a rich and diverse extra curricular program without your hard work and dedication.
