We put Pearl to the test, to see how long she can run on a treadmill going 8mph.. the winner would upgrade their 3 month pass to the Southport Rec Centre to a full year. Matt Anderson was only four seconds off her time of 4 minutes and 44 seconds. A huge thanks goes to the Southport Rec Centre for letting us use their amazing facilities and a huge thanks also to everyone who came out.
What a party! We had a blast hanging out with Madame Smith's grade one class at Crescentview for September's Classroom of the month. Thanks to Zahara's nomination, students took a break from their work to play games, win prizes and enjoy a delicious pizza lunch from Boston Pizza. Have a look at all the fun below!
