On Friday, November 16 in the afternoon, our grade 6/7 students in Division 2 had the pleasure of learning a few hockey tricks and playing a hockey game with the Vancouver Canucks coaching team: Head Coach, Alain Vignealt; Assistant Coach, Darryl Williams; & Goaltending Coach, Roland melanson. Thank you to the teacher, Ms. Greenhalgh who was one of the 40 recipients of this Power Play Curriculum, a focus on healthy nutrition, fitness and FUN! Along with the visit, our school was presented with some signed hockey sticks and gears for our student to countinue this great sport.
Our VSB Communication crew came by to take pictures of the event as well as the Canucks TV. To reminisce this memorable event, please check out one of the sites below.
