Tuesday night teacher Rob Abbott gave the Board a presentation on the success of the Division’s Hockey Academy which is also run by Craig McIntosh and Steve Lytwyn. The program is open to all students male and female with the target to give students who would not have the opportunity a chance to participate. Abbott stated that about sixty percent of the students involved each year never played hockey and not many could even skate. Students are up early and at the rink ready to play and learn ultimately improving their skills. The Academy kicks off in the first weeks of September and runs until early March. Abbott says he thinks the program is awesome and thanked the Board and the Rotary Club for their continued support and the Academy is looking forward to another successful year.
In her report Superintendent Constance McCleese congratulated Amber Zerbin, Miranda Bowman, Daniel Dillon and Steve Lytwyn on completing their Masters of Education Degrees this year.
