This semester six teams of students from two Grade 10 Small Engines classes designed and built Go-Karts as part of their cumulative assignments.

Most of the parts were fabricated and welded in the school's fully-equipped metal and machine shop. The team leaders were Joe, Mark, Jordan, Marcus, Jaco and Dean.

Referee at OFSAA tells us what he really thinks...

This letter, below, came by email to Mr. Harris, from the referee of the Girls soccer team's gold medal game at OFSAA on Saturday.
Winning gold is great, but this is a prize that lasts.......
Way to go, girls: you've made us so proud!

Hello Ted

My name is Paul Dobson, and I had the honour of officiating the Gold Medal game at the recent OFSSA tournament in which Smithville Christian High School won the Gold medal.

I would like to take this time to share with you a few thoughts in hopes that you will share these with the staff and students of your fine school. 

During the tournament I officiated the semi final and Gold medal games both of which your Smithville girls played in. I was extremely pleased with and impressed by the way they presented themselves both on and off the field. During the pregame, the game, after each game and any time between games that I observed your team players, they were what I would call a true team. They were the most cordial winners I can recall seeing in any tournament (either school or club) in my 30 years as a referee. I truly enjoyed every minute of the games I officiated that they were involved in. They showed respect to the game, to the referees, their opponents and most importantly to themselves. 

You should all be extremely proud of each and everyone of these young ladies as well as the coaching staff for both the accomplishments on the field and how they represented you and your school during their time in the Elgin/Portland area. 

I wish continued success to your school and especially to these fine young ladies in their pursuit of their goals in life. 

Respectfully Yours,

Paul Dobson
