Centennial School recently commenced their volleyball program. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, volleyball and other school sports are being co-ordinated differently. In previous years, our volleyball and basketball teams were comprised of grade 6-8 students. Due to cohorting measures, we are organizing two school teams and practices. We have a Grade 7-8 team and a Grade 5-6 team.
Ms. Wilson is coaching both volleyball teams. Teams practice several times each week. Because play against other schools is not possible at this time, our student teams are practising individually and playing games with each other.
The volleyball practices and games will continue to run until the end of November. One highlight for the teams will be the volleyball season finale that will feature both student teams playing the Centennial staff team.
WRPS recognizes that extracurricular activities play a large part in establishing "a learning community that nurtures hope and inspires a sense of purpose for all" (WRPS Board Vision Statement). Our schools are finding creative ways to include extracurricular activities despite the regulations in place because of COVID-19.
