I’m writing to invite you to join the team, Keira’s Krusaders, in support of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. We’d love to have you join the national movement to end brain tumours and to honour the memory of a very special girl, Keira Bond.
This year the Brain Tumour Walk is not organizing an event like last year, so this will just be our Keira Krusader Crew walking to honour and remember the remarkable Keira for a good cause. We will be walking together along Sturgeon Creek, a place Keira enjoyed. We will meet at Grant’s Old Mill at 10:00am on Saturday, June 15th and walk along the path.

Join Our Team!
Please share in this experience by joining our team and by helping to raise money for a worthy cause! Just click on this link:  Join Keira’s Krusaders .

FREE BAGPIPE & DRUM LESSONS

The Lord Selkirk RFM Pipe Band (LSRFMPB) was established in 1957 with a mission to provide free instruction in the great highland bagpipe and drums to all children.  This still applies today with the assistance from some wonderful volunteers from the Winnipeg Police Pipe Band and the St Andrew’s Society Pipe Band.  There is no catch, except for keeping the legacy going of Mr. Robert Fraser, our founder.
The band’s website contains more information at https://lsrfmpb.ca/ and the band is on Facebook and Instagram. 
I have included the poster below as a .pdf attachment and a brochure for distribution via school newsletter, email, etc.

 Please let me know if you could assist with promoting this opportunity and should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

I’m writing to invite you to join the team, Keira’s Krusaders, in support of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. We’d love to have you join the national movement to end brain tumours and to honour the memory of a very special girl, Keira Bond.
This year the Brain Tumour Walk is not organizing an event like last year, so this will just be our Keira Krusader Crew walking to honour and remember the remarkable Keira for a good cause. We will be walking together along Sturgeon Creek, a place Keira enjoyed. We will meet at Grant’s Old Mill at 10:00am on Saturday, June 15th and walk along the path.

Join Our Team!
Please share in this experience by joining our team and by helping to raise money for a worthy cause! Just click on this link:  Join Keira’s Krusaders .
If you are not interested in joining the team to walk but would like to learn more about Keira or make a donation, click on the link above as well. 

Sincerely,
Nancy Froystad

The boys’ competitive basketball team had a very successful season this year.  The boys finished the regular season with an undefeated record of 8 wins and zero losses!  The boys were the highest scoring team of any of the Catholic school teams, in all divisions, scoring 516 points in 8 league games.  The boys’ season unfortunately came to an earlier ending than expected, as most of the team was sick for the week of playoffs.  The boys all had a fantastic attitude this year throughout the entire season and played very well together as a team.  Great job, boys! 
Mr. Vechina
The competitive girls’ basketball team had an amazing season, finishing their regular season in 6th overall with 4 wins and 4 losses. During the playoffs, the girls worked hard to make it to the tier 2 semi-finals at St. Paul’s High School. They played their best basketball and finished the playoffs with a 4th place finish. This group of young players consistently improved throughout the season as they gained confidence in their skills. Most importantly, the girls fully embraced the concept of basketball being a team sport and demonstrated good sportsmanship both on and off the court towards their teammates and their opponents. It has been an absolute privilege to coach this team and we hope that they will continue to play this fabulous sport for many years to come. 😊
Go Chargers!
Head Coach Gel, Technical Skills Coach Senderewich, Away Game Bench Coach Mardis
The developmental boys’ basketball team had an undefeated season this year, winning all 6 of their games. The boys worked hard to develop their skills and develop as a team. Congratulations on a fantastic season boys! 
Miss McEvoy
The developmental girls’ team had a lot of fun this season developing their basketball skills. The team enjoyed playing 6 games and showed improvement throughout the season! Great season team!
