"Citius, Altius, Fortius" in District 16

Posted: June 22, 2009

Hundreds of enthusiastic children from grades three to five recently participated in the annual District 16 SUBWAY Elementary School Track and Field meet at James M. Hill High School under sunny summer-like skies. This ambitious event held over two days was made possible by local educators  and  a dedicated cadre of volunteers from the community, all of whom drew on experience gained from previous years to ensure a smooth running mass participation event that was greatly enjoyed by the youngsters.  The young athletes came from all of the district elementary schools as well as the first nations schools in the region, and  many went home wearing ribbons won in the heats and finals of the running, jumping and throwing events.  The community involvement of volunteers and cheering and supportive parents insured all students had a wonderful day and the smiles on all their faces showed it was a huge success.
