The Track & Field module is coming to an end as May begins. It has been great seeing the students
discovering their abilities in the various events that make up Track & Field! As we move on in May, we
will be venturing outside to experience Softball/Baseball, Ultimate, Outdoor games, as well as Floor
Hockey indoors. Getting outside and enjoying the Spring weather is what it's all about in PE at Sansom!!
Badminton season drew to an amazingly successful close with all three grade teams taking home the
division championship banner! Teams also competed in the first ever Sansom-Morrow Invitational, a
unique event jointly hosted by Clarence Sansom and Ernest Morrow schools at the Sunridge Badminton
Centre. These events, combined with the exhibition match schedule with Ernest Morrow have all added
up to one of the most successful Badminton seasons in Sansom history! Congrats to all athletes for all of
their hard work and dedication to improvement over the season. A huge thanks also goes out to Mr.
Newman, Ms. Miles and Mr. Chiu for the countless hours that they put in to coaching and organizing the
teams and their seasons, and again to Mr. Newman for taking on the role of Division Chair and ensuring
that all got to experience a successful and fun season!
Track & Field season is also drawing to a close with the Divisional Track Meet scheduled to take place on
Wednesday May 6th at Foothills Athletic Park. The meet runs from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm, and we will be
sending a team of 145 athletes to the meet to represent Sansom! The athletes have been working hard
in practice to sharpen their technical skills and improve their results and we're excited to see all of their
hard work rewarded with the experience of competing on a bigger stage! If weather doesn't allow the
meet to go ahead on the 6th, the alternate date for the meet is May 21st, again at Foothills Athletic Park.
