The 2017/18 DSBN Business Skills Competition had 21 Eden Business students submitting excellent work done in Ms. Etherington and Ms. Lackenbauer’s classes. Eden placed in every category first or second spot!
Eden’s Field Hockey club has grown every year since it’s inception in 2011 and is looking to build on their recent successes this coming fall season! In 2017 we were both Zone and SOSSA Champions and in 2018 we won Zone and narrowly lost in a shootout at the SOSSA final. For the past 6 seasons, there have been two teams and this year 52 girls competed, over half of which were new to the sport. Many grade 12’s came out last year as rookies wanting to try a new sport before they graduated, and said: “I’m so disappointed I didn’t start playing earlier!”
There was also a large group of grade 9 girls, who came out and found it a great way to make new friends as they ventured into high school.
Field Hockey is listed as the 3rd most popular sport world-wide behind soccer and cricket but isn’t as well known here in Canada. To most, this is a new sport and NO EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED to join the team. Field Hockey (called hockey outside North America) uses the positioning of soccer and curved sticks that are hip height.
The season starts on the second day of school and our philosophy is that there is a spot for anyone who wants to come out and be active and have fun! Eden would also like to wish recent graduate Mackenzie Janzen good luck as she spends the summer in Chile and Belgium playing with the Canadian National Junior team!
