Grade 10’s, your Dragon Boating field trip has been booked for Friday May 25th in the afternoon (blocks 1-1 & 1-2). This runs behind False Creek Community Centre on Granville Island. First 19 in each class will get to attend and then the rest will be put on a waitlist. Cost is $15. Please return forms and fees by April 25th.
All students, please see the attached “challenge assignment” for over the Spring Break. I am encouraging you to get active, your choice of activity, at lease 3 times over each week of the break! Due back the first week of school.
Term 2 ends Friday March 2nd. I am only here day 1 so Thursday March 1st is the day for making up any missed work! See me at lunch, in class or after school to get this done. This includes Fitness Testing which we completed Feb 27th in class.
Grade 10’s, see the below Archery “How To” videos for some valuable tips. The instructor is Nu Sensei and his descriptions of technique are broken down well for beginners. Note, he stresses to NEVER draw and release a string without an arrow in it. It is called Dry Firing and is very bad for the bow.
You have two more classes left to practice. Skills assessment runs Monday. November 27th
And here’s another one that’s really informative (if you have 20 mins to spare to watch):
