Students With Heart!
TEAM School students held their 13th Annual Hoops For Heart tournament fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation last Thursday! Hoops For Heart is an all-day 3-on-3 basketball tournament with students in each grade level playing each other. Student participation: 100%! This year, the school raised $5003 – with the top fundraising honour going to Yusuf Sheikh – who raised $576!
The highlight of the day was the student-teacher game – with the primary classes taking on the teachers. The TEAM Tigers won the red ribbon and paraded the winning trophy around the school. Other highlights:
- Students cheering by doing the wave and Lily Dow demonstrating some strong cheerleading abilities Omogbai Asekomhe charging down the court during the Grade 4 activities
- The Grade 5s for some excellent shots on net
- The Grade 6s for their tremendous passing and great layups
- Cameron and Amaya for their great shots in Grade 7
- Grade 8 students for their competitive spirit and taking the game very seriously
All students played very well, exhibiting confidence with their basketball skills. The tournament was a huge success and lot of fun. Special thank you to the referees for the day: Cameron Carvalho, PJ Sauer, Ryland Kenny, Ethan Barboza, Jake Archambault, and Bobby Petrovski! We look forward to viewing a short video courtesy of TSS Computer Technology students!
