Hockey, Hockey, Hockey!
Ballenas staff and students recently celebrated the annual Spirit of Hockey Cup! This event is highlighted by a friendly hockey game between the staff and students, featuring participants from the District's Hockey Academy. The afternoon started with a pre-game warm-up skate, followed by the singing of the national anthem, O'Canada. The game began after the Ceremonial Puck Drop by Trustee Young, with a first period run time of 25 minutes. During the intermission, the Senior Football Team players provided half-time entertainment with Human Bowling and Crazy Carpet Races. At second period the staff realized they were being out-skated, so they decided to lace up their determination and crank their game up a notch! The game was filled with fun, skill, and a bit of friendly banter, resulting in a landslide victory for the students with a final score of 11-2. Thanks to the thrilling outcome of the game, the District is contemplating spicing up their job postings by throwing in a new requirement: "Must have a high level of hockey skills. 🏒💼 Get ready to bring your A-game."
Sincere thanks to Coach Andrew Lee for orchestrating such a well-organized event.
