The event went very well, thanks to the many volunteers and schools each helping to run an event.  Many records broken!

Teacher to bring replacement athletes to event directly.

If an athlete will not run in the finals, come to let the cabin know so that the next best time can be substituted.

Other Services Offered: n/a Activities Offered: n/a

Challenges You Had To Run A Successful Event: • A small staff and student population made it difficult to find enough volunteers. • One student who was a race marshal gave participants of the midget and juvenile runners incorrect directions leading to confusion. Some students were frustrated that they did not run the same distance as others; some students ran farther than they had expected. A lot of time was spent looking for lost runners. • Couldn’t find a volunteer with knowledge of first aid. • There was some confusion with the finish time results because of difficulties with communication. • It is more difficult for runners to race fast times when there are few runners. More high schools should be encouraged to participate.

  • All went well this year, weather was great even though it was only held in October.

 

Summary of Event: 

 

Schools began to arrive at approximately 8:45 am, we had teams and a rotation prepared. Students had a snack and were given the explanation of the day. Then we began the games. After the allotted time it was lunch time and the students all ate inside in the cafeteria and gymnasium of BAS. Following lunch we had two large group games and some free time before distributing ribbons and saying goodbye.

  • It is a good idea to enlist the help of the older students to be the leaders at the various activity stations. Teachers took a supervisory role.

Challenges You Had To Run A Successful Event:  

 

  • This event ran smoothly. The only issue was the threat of poor weather towards the end of the day, March 22nd, 2019 so two schools (SPDS and NCHS) canceled.

 

Summary of Event: 

 

Schools began to arrive at approximately 8:30 am, the schedule of the event began at 9 am with games running for 10 minutes.  We had established a supervision schedule for all GES staff, which worked well. The schools were given rooms to store their belongings in.  The cafeteria opened immediately and students began to eat immediately as well. The games room and ping-pong were more popular than the movie room.  There were almost no behavior issues at all.

 

Recommendations: 

 

  • The weather did not cooperate so we have 2 school cancellations.

 

  • Once again I am pleased with the participation of the grade 3 students. They were able to handle the freedom of the day and were quite responsible about making it to their games on time.

 

 

  • We posted game times for parent spectators. We did this on FB.

Summary of Event: 

Overall, day seemed to go very well.  Most schools had plenty of supervision.  It was awesome to have three new schools from ESSB participating this year (Metis Beach, SPDS, Belle Anse).  There were a few times where referees/umpires were needed but there were enough teachers/adults to help out with this task!

 

Recommendations: 

Must be on a Saturday

Smaller brackets, may be possible to play a round robin ??

Possibility of a small area with games/cards/colouring? – not sure if needed but may make the day feel a little less long for some.

Look at point calculation for banners
