Congratulations to our boys curling Phoenix as they captured WOSSAA gold in Glencoe on March 5! The team has been running the table throughout the season and will take their winning form to North Bay for the OFSAA championships from March 19 - 22. We are very proud of this team's success and we wish them the very best as they represent WOSSAA and take on the rest of Ontario in this great sport!
Sorry for the late notice, but the Seaforth rural buses are not running today. Also, Clinton bus #7 is cancelled due to fog. CHSS classes will run on a normal schedule and everyone who can safely get to school is expected to do so.
We have some very skilled and talented curlers at CHSS. We would like to recognize their accomplishments at this point in our season.
The newly formed team consisting of Matt Southgate, Ian MacGregor, Sean Mitchell, and Stuart Perkes worked hard at practices and bonspiels in the earlier part of the season to come together as a team. Each athlete has strong curling skills and a great understanding of the game which helped them be successful as a team. The boys were runners-up at the Huron Curling Competition on February 10th and 11th at the Vanastra Curling Club. They advanced to the Huron - Perth Competition on February 19th in Vanastra. The team placed third at this competition.
The girls team, consisting of Christina Schelken, Laura and Alanna Henderson, and Sarah MacGregor, had three returning players and Laura as a new member. From the start, they worked well as a team with each athlete bringing their years of experience and great curling skills to the team. The team experienced great success at the competitions. The girls were the Ontario Curling Association (OCA) schoolgirls zone winners and placed 4th in the regional competition. The girls were the Huron curling champions and they were silver medalists at the Huron- Perth competition.
The boys team, consisting of Ethan Doig, Alex and Adam Vincent, and Sam Steep, have been curling together as a team since elementary school. They are seeing the rewards of their hard work and hours of practice in this season. The boys are the OCA schoolboys zone winners, regional winners and provincial champions. The team are the Huron curling champions and the Huron Perth champions. They represent CHSS at WOSSAA on March 5th in Glencoe. Good luck!
Congratulations to all the athletes on their accomplishments. You make CHSS proud of you.
Next week, there are a few important dates of which everyone should be aware. On Tuesday, March 4, our wonderful and talented bands will participate in Music Fest Regionals in London. Our boys curlers will take their juggernaut to Glencoe on Wednesday, March 5 to represent Huron Perth at the WOSSAA Curling Championships. Our best wishes and support go with both groups.
Semester Two interim reports will be given to our students on Thursday, March 6. Parents can arrange interviews with our teachers for Parent Interview Night, which comes up on Thursday, March 20.
Friday, March 7 is a PD Day and the March Break runs through to March 16, with classes resuming on Monday, March 17. All of us at CHSS wish all of our students and their families a restful break and let's all hope that we're in store for a quick and warm spring season!
The weather has caused our buses to be cancelled. Students who had already been picked up are being returned to their homes. The school will remain open for study purposes and for those who can arrive safely.
Congratulations to our boys curling Phoenix who won Huron-Perth in Vanastra last week. The team travels to Glencoe next week to compete in WOSSAA. Good luck to the boys and their diligent coaching staff!!
Poor weather has resulted in our buses being cancelled today. CHSS will remain open for those who can get there safely and for study purposes only. The mental health presentation scheduled for this afternoon has been cancelled.
Congratulations to the CHSS boys curling Phoenix as they went undefeated at the 2014 Gore Mutual Schoolboy Provincial Curling Championship in Cambridge last weekend, defeating Markham DHS 5-2 in the final game to win the championship banner!
