Congratulations runners! What a fantastic cross-country season! We might have only had a small group this year, but they were certainly a dedicated group. Today marks the end of our cross-country season and the runners from ÉRB went out with a bang! Runners had the opportunity to participate in two district level races, and participated in our divisional race this afternoon at Assiniboine Park. Everyone showed great improvement in their running and was truly dedicated to having a personal best run at the end of the season. Way to go! A special thank you to Mme Flynn for her help with coaching this year. We all know those early mornings aren’t easy, and we great appreciate it. Next up in terms of interscholastic sports is Team Handball for grade fives.
Believe it or not spring is here! That means the start of our spring season of extra curricular activities. Students/Parents that are interested in any of the activities should stay tuned for more information following our Spring Break.
Starting up as soon as we get back from the break will be Speed Stacking Time Trials. All students at École Robert Browning will have the opportunity to be timed in the 3-6-3 as well as The Cycle stack. Those students with the fastest times in the school will have the opportunity to represent us at the annual SJAEYAA Speed Stacking Tournament held on April 23rd.
Also starting in April will be our Grade 5 Badminton Club. Badminton club will run twice a week, and will provide the students with a deeper understanding of the skills, strategies and techniques that make up the game of badminton. All students in grade 5 are welcome to come out and participate, regardless of skill level. Practices will be held on Wednesday mornings starting at 8:15am. More info will follow soon.
Finally, our very popular Marathon Club will also be starting up in April. Students will be running twice a week (Tuesdays/Thursdays) in the morning. The goal of our club is to participate in the Great West Life 2.6 Mile Super Run as part of the Manitoba Marathon on June 15th. More info coming soon!
