On Friday, January 22nd Bishop Carter hosted a Winter Olympics for the grade nine and ten students in the B.E.S.T. program. This day was perfectly placed after E.Q.A.O. and before exams, to provide a much needed day of fun with no stress. The Senior Leadership class was in charge of planning, and running the event for as their culminating task.
The morning started off with a walk to the Church for the first two events. Here countries competed againstt each other in Boot Hockey and various Sliding Races. The teams then returned to the school for an Olympic Banquet (lunch). The delicious lunch included hotdogs, various salads and Olympic Ring cupcakes. The afternoon competition included Sticks and various Racing events like the snowshoe relay. After the events teams went to the awards ceremony. Nine specialty medals were given for individual recognition. Ribbons were handed out for the first, second and third place team for the various events. When all was said and done Russia received bronze, Canada received silver and Finland walked away with the gold. Job well done to the Senior Leadership class, and thank you to the B.E.S.T. program for participating. Fun was had by all.
