Basketball season begins anew

This is the second year we have had a Hoop-a-thon and both times it has been a wonderful success.

 

55 students participated: they are split into three groups and each student plays eight hours throughout the event. Each player spends about three weeks gathering pledges from the community, and on the day of Parent Teacher Interviews they started a game at 1 pm that continued until 1 pm the next day.. Final funding cash numbers are not in yet.

 

Funds will go to team travel, warm up gear and tournament costs.

 

It was enjoyed by all students and staff that supervised: Angus McGowan, Ebony Logins, Ian Mckenzie.
