Volleyball Update:

Both the girls and boys volleyball teams did a fantastic job today playing against the staff!   The grade 7 boys played the grade 7 girls and we think they had a lot of fun!  The grade 8 boys team and the grade 8 girls team each played Brookville staff!   The energy in the gym made the games very exciting with lots of school spirit.
