This past week in Phys. Ed. we continued to work on our striking. Students had the opportunity to try out a variety of tennis games/activities. We played Tennis 4 Square, Tennis Star Wars and also spent some time working on some of the basic techniques of the game. Students will have a bit more time to work on their tennis skills in the upcoming week.
Last week we also wrapped up our speed stacking season. The 12 students selected to represent ÉRB at the divisional tournament did a fantastic job, and well represented our school! Congratulations again to all of our stackers! For those students that didn’t make the tournament group this year, keep on practicing, next year’s time trials will start in March.
We also celebrated the return of the Winnipeg Jets to the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Monday. ÉRB can out dressed in white to have our very own Winnipeg Whiteout at school. It was great to see all the support from our students.
This coming week I will be away from Wednesday-Friday to attend the National Physical Education Conference put on by PHE Canada. M. Walden and M. Reid will be here on those days to help out M. Koester in the gym. See you all the following week!
I huge congratulations to all our speed stackers! You all did a fantastic job! Thanks for being such great role models. You’ve done a great job representing our school.
Spring has sprung at ÉRB! Last week marked the beginning of our Marathon Club practices. We have over 40 students out with us training to run upwards of 2 miles. Practices run on tuesdays/thursdays from 8:15-8:55am. Great job runners!
In class we are continuing to work on striking. We have now wrapped up our basic striking unit and will be moving on to racquet sports in the coming weeks. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will have a chance to do some racquet sports outdoors.
We have now finalized our speed stacking team for the upcoming tournament on April 22nd. You can check out the teams & clubs section for more information on who made the team. Best of luck to all participants.
This year was another very competitive year in speed stacking at ÉRB. We have narrowed down our team to the 12 finalists that will be representing us at the divisional tournament on April 22nd, 2015. Congratulations to everyone!

The snow is gone! It’s going to be 16 degrees tomorrow! What a perfect day to start training. Registration for the High 5 Community 5km Run is open now!
A great first week back after spring break. We picked up right where we left off prior to the break with striking. Students had a chance to play a few different striking games. We tried out a new game called Long Base, played some Cricket and also played Bat-a-rama. Striking will continue next week as we slowly transition into more of the racquet sports (badminton, tennis).
Last week was also the first week of grade 4/5 badminton club. This club will meet twice a week for the months of April and May. All students in grade 4 and 5 are welcome to come out regardless of badminton skill level. At the end of the club 12 students will be chosen to participate in the badminton tournament held on June 5th @ Strathmillan School.
