Sansom PE has been hard at work the past month enjoying the wonderful weather and gaining experience in all of the track and field events, including Sprints, Distance, Long Jump, High Jump, Discus and Shot Put. Hopefully this will help those trying out for the various track and field teams! We will be returning to module work at the beginning of May with outdoor modules through to the end of the school year.
Badminton season ended in April with all three grade teams participating in the Sansom-Morrow invitational at the Sunridge Badminton Centre, and competing in divisional championships at John G. Deifenbaker High School and the Genesis Centre in Saddleridge. Congrats to all of our players on a great season with many top 3 finishers!
Track & Field season is in full swing with teams being built and training for competition at the Divisional track meet scheduled for May 9th at Glenmore athletic park. We will be sending 3 grade teams to compete against schools from all corners of the city in the 100m, 300m, 600m, 1000m, 2000m, High Jump, Long Jump, Discus, Shot Put, 60m Hurdles and the 4x100m relay. Let’s hope for great weather!
Once the track meet is complete, it will mark the end of the competitive athletics season for Junior High athletics, and preparation for next year will begin! We have already awarded our Volleyball Summer Camp Scholarships to two lucky grade 8 students, and we'd like to thank our friends at the University of Calgary for their continued support with this program. Any students interested in sports camps over the summer, including Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, etc. please see Mr. Damgaard in the PE office.
