Congratulations to our Collingwood School Alpine Team - way to go!!

We are happy to announce that the Alpine Team WON the Combined Girls and Boys Ski Banner this year!

Individual

Sam Fuller – won both races as well as the individual overall (he won the GS by a whopping 4.5 seconds!) He is currently away competing at nationals but if you see him in the halls after spring break, please congratulate him! He was absolutely outstanding

Jamie Border – got the bronze medal in the Terrain GS. She was impressively tenacious and broke the Border curse of coming 4th!

Olivier Bruson – places 10th in the snowboard Terrain GS (a personal best!)

Team

Girls Skiing placed second behind a VERY competitive Invermere team who was stacked with 4 of the top ski racers this province has seen in a while.

Boys Skiing placed third in a very close team division this year.

VMUN 2020
VMUN 2020

From February 14 to 16t, twelve Collingwood students participated at the Vancouver Model United Nations (VMUN), one of Canada’s premier educational simulations and the largest high school student-organized Model United Nations conference in North America.  

A highlight of this conference was the speech of Dr. David Suzuki, a Canadian academic, science broadcaster and environmental activist who has made his life’s work to help humanity understand, appreciate, respect and protect nature. 

Collingwood delegates were immersed in a thriving fast-paced environment, thinking critically, collaborating with others, working to create practical and dynamic solutions while debating topics such as gender equality, climate action, Canadian healthcare system, Labour Trafficking and more. Collingwood had a presence in 4 Committees: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), House of Commons ( HOC), Advanced Crisis Committee (ACC) and Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM).  

Honourable Mention upon Harrison for his role as Leader of the Official Opposition in the House of Commons (HOC). 

Cavs Win Silver and Bronze At ISA Championships
Cavs Win Silver and Bronze At ISA Championships

Collingwood hosted the ISA Grade 8 Basketball Championships this past weekend.  The event featured an 8-team girls' draw and a 10-team boys' tournament.  The boys came away with the silver medal, while the girls brought home the bronze.

The girls opened the tournament with a solid victory over a feisty Southridge team.  This set up a semi-final against a powerful SMUS squad.  The Cavs played a tremendous first half and were tied with the Blue Jags at halftime.  Unfortunately, some key missed opportunities allowed SMUS to pull ahead in the 4th quarter for the win.  Collingwood bounced back in spectacular fashion with a resounding victory over WPGA to win the bronze.

The boys' team first game was against Meadowridge.  The Cavs sped to an early lead and did not look back.  In the semi-final, Collingwood faced Southridge.  The Storm had won two out of the last three boys' championships so it seemed this might be a tough test for the Cavs.  While the game was relatively close in the first half, a 10-0 run to open the second half put the game away for Collingwood.

In the final, the Cavs faced a Saints B squad that had been bolstered by a couple of their 'A' players. The game was a true 'barnburner' as it went into double overtime.  Collingwood had the last shot and therefore a chance to win the game in both regulation and at the end of the first overtime period.  However, the shots did not fall and Saints pulled away in the second overtime for the win.
