Winter Pep Rally

 

Story by Alena Muegge

Sat Mar 7, 2020

 

LASALLE, ONT – Yesterday, on March 6th, the long-awaited Winter Pep Rally was held at Sandwich Secondary School. Sabres celebrated the victories of their Winter teams and gladly welcomed the new season of Spring by wearing their best Spring break gear. In addition to the fun and games at the assembly, a lot has been going on within the school community that the Sabres couldn’t wait to share.

 

Junior Boys Basketball accomplished a major win against Massey this year and overall, it’s been a good season, as revealed by Colin Dawson and Fadi Malas. Similarly, the Senior Boys Basketball had a strong start to the season and made it into the finals, that is, until two of the players were unexpectedly injured. On another note, the Boys and Girls Hockey teams have been competing with nothing but determination and team spirit. A special congratulations went out to the Sabre Girls Hockey team on winning the WECSSAA Championship over St. Anne's.

 

The Swim Team and the Junior and Senior Girls Volleyball teams also won a WECSSA Championship. In addition to this, the Junior Girls Volleyball team won SWOSSAA in a dominant 3 to 0 win over the Chatham Kent Hawks. Jessie Whatmore spread out the sets to Julia Gordon, Avery Beneteau, and Kyra Tzimas as they slammed down kill after kill. Both teams fought hard and, in the end, they had a fantastic season.

 

And to all the teams and clubs that have not been mentioned, Sandwich encourages you to keep up the good work! Groups such as DECA, Robotics, Squash, Wrestling, and the Drama Club have had an amazing year which could not have been achieved without their amazing coaches/mentors. During the assembly, a huge thank you went out to Mr. Reitsma who has been the wrestling coach at Sandwich for over 18 years!

 

In conclusion, Sabres enjoyed the time spent with their school and were grateful to have an opportunity to formally thank their coaches. But that’s not all; There are numerous upcoming events that students are eager for such as the ‘Freaky Friday’ Musical and the Robotics SSEC Competition in Ottawa. Sandwich is also taking part in the Relay for Life Fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. The school’s goal is to raise $100 per student.

Parent  Advisory Council Pathways Seminar

On Monday Febraury 10th, our Parent Advisory Council sponsored a night for parents to come and hear speakers from the Sandwich Student Services Department and the Greater Essex County District School Board.  Representatives from the University of Windsor and St. Clair College wre also on hand to answer questions and discuss the programs they offered.  Parents were presented with information about choosing courses for next year, specialized programs and exploring different pathways for their son or daughter.  After the presentations were complete parents had the opportunity to speak directly with all of the presenters and representatives to address specific questions and concerns.  It was a positive educational experience for all those who attended.  Thank you to the Parent Advisory Council for sponsoring the event.
