Fanning the Flames!

… at the annual Female World Sport School Challenge Tournament.

Five years ago, SCCS students were invited to support the St. Mary’s Academy Flames Hockey Team at their first annual Female World Sport School Challenge Tournament. And without too much ado, Dr. Penny rented buses and brought almost the entire school to cheer the team on. Now, five years later, it has become our treasured tradition as a “sister” school to support the team at this tournament. SCCS students are responsible for providing the Opening Anthems to kick-off the tournament. Yes, we still take busloads of students to cheer on our favorite school team!

The experience was especially poignant this year, as a SCCS alum, Kyra Theissen, a student in Grade 12, was the SMA team captain. We have her family to thank for the Learn-to-Skate program and Hockey Skills program being offered at SCCS….see earlier blog posts for the details.

The team earned a bronze medal. Way to go, Flames! As the school chant requests, we “pray for you!”
