Cavs Defeat York House To Move Onto Zone Final
Cavs Defeat York House To Move Onto Zone Final

The senior field hockey team defeated York House 1-0 yesterday to move onto the Vancouver Sea To Sky Zone Final today at Rutledge Field.  York House came into the playoffs as the #1 ranked team from the Vancouver Independent league so the Cavs were a slight underdog going into the game.  

Allie Lavis scored the game's only goal on a fabulous tip-in off a short-corner.  Lexy Bannister notched her second shut-out in two days.  The Cavs now face arch-rival Crofton House in today's final at 3:00Pm.

Collingwood quickly demonstrated that they meant business today as they scored at the 1:38 mark.  Olivia Okano scored off a short-corner to give the Cavs the early lead they wanted.  The game then settled into a tough battle as LFA pushed to get the equalizer.  However, Lexy Bannister made two fantastic saves to keep the Cavs in front. A late goal by Katie Connell sealed the deal.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

In 2015, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission presented their final report. This report included 94 Calls to Action to further reconciliation between Canadians and Indigenous peoples. Call 80 of this report states:

We call upon the federal government, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to establish, as a statutory holiday, a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to honour Survivors, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.


In response to this, September 30, 2021 will be the first official National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. This day gives the public a chance to recognize and commemorate the intergenerational harm that residential schools have caused to Indigenous families and communities, and to honour those who have been affected by this injustice.

A reminder that while a specific day has been set aside to focus on Truth and Reconciliation, truth and reconciliation is an ongoing shift in focus and mindset. We are all on a growth journey that will last a lifetime.

Next week students will be taking part in activities throughout the week that allows them to reflect, learn and be part of the change in developing respectful and meaningful relationships with our Indigenous community.

We encourage you to be part of the change as well.
