What Coaching in the Challenge Cup Means to Me
-written by Mr. Peter Curran

Coaching in the Challenge Cup is a lot of things. One, it is an act of faith. Because we practice for two and half months and only get to play one game at the end, it is sometimes hard to verify the progress we make as a team from practice to practice and from week to week. We don't really know how prepared we are until game day, so we have to have faith in our hard work, our principles and in each other so that we stay committed to getting ahead. It's also a privilege. I take very seriously the opportunity to play the greatest sport in the world in the middle of the day during the work week. My boss lets us shut the school down for the afternoon and sends all the kids across town to cheer us on. It's something I have never lost sight of, and it's something we should all appreciate. Finally, it's a thrill. I played a lot of hockey growing up in this town, but Challenge Cup was always my favourite game of the year. It's an opportunity for the boys and girls who make the team to play in front of a raucous and intense crowd of friends, family and teachers. I sometimes run into kids today who participated 15 and 20 years ago, and they still talk about what a thrill it was to be a part of the game.

We’ve had a busy two months! We have many exciting things coming up so try to pay attention to our calendar on our website for upcoming activities!
Congratulations to our volleyball athletes who attended the tournament held in Fort Smith. Our girls brought home two banners! Three of our volleyball teams then brought home three banners after competing in the Sr. Spike-It Tournament! On November 22, 2017 our hockey players will come face-to-face with St. Pat’s on the ice during the 33rd Annual Challenge Cup Competition. Let’s show our school spirit by wearing our Sir John colours and cheering on our ​F​alcons! All students are required to attend Challenge Cup. Buses will be available to make sure everyone has a ride to the rink.
Inside our most recent newsletter you’ll find important information for students who will be graduating this year. Our guidance department has created a checklist to help make planning a little easier.
