Success! We won yesterday’s game again Switzerland 1-0 and our Canadian Pride is running strong. In fact, this was a record-breaking game since a grand total of 53,855 fans came out to see the game at Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium – the most EVER for a Canadian national team home game. Tons of students are getting out there to see the final games. Who will win? Canada? Japan? Netherlands? Vancouver is going crazy with team spirit. Who are you cheering for??

Color Run!

Known as “The Happiest 5k on the Planet”, The Color Run is a five kilometre run designed to promote healthiness and happiness. And fun! This event is a once-a-year opportunity to bring people together and strengthen the ties within our community. One of our students, Misaki Tsuchiya, demonstrated very strong organizational and leadership skills as she got teams together for the run. It was a lot of work! She not only got up to speak in front of the whole school (on numerous occasions!) but also spent her free time meeting new students and explaining the Color Run to them so everyone could participate if they wanted. On June 13th, the rules of the event were simple: 1) Wear white, and 2) Finish covered in rainbow colours. Looks like everyone had a great time! Thanks so much Misaki!

TAMWOOD Summer Festival

Welcome Summer 2015! The Tamwood Careers students worked REALLY hard and did an AMAZING job at throwing a GREAT party. We wanted to welcome the warm weather and give all the new students at our school a chance to get to know each other – and that’s exactly what happened! We all had a blast at Sunset Beach competing in three-legged races, playing volleyball and badminton, eating snacks, and trying to win that ridiculous balloon race game. The raffle prizes were fantastic – whoever won the trips to Whistler and the $50 restaurant gift certificates really lucked out. Thanks for a wonderful time and the perfect way to start the summer!! ? ?
