If You Look To The West The STARS Shine! – Submitted by Tara Denis

If You Look To The West The STARS Shine!

Submitted by Tara Denis (January 2013)

Being able to have sports teams is a challenge facing schools in rural locations. The schools that are located on the west end of Parkland County have come up with a solution to this challenge. The solution is to join together and combine our children and resources. This allows our children to experience the joy of being on a sports team. The schools involved are Wabamun, Entwistle, Seba Beach, and Tomahawk, and it’s just a coincidence that the when abbreviated the school names spell WEST.

This fall the principle of these schools met and decided that it was definitely a win-win situation for everyone involved to make a combined team. The students that want to play on a school sports team will get the opportunity to do just that. This takes a little more dedication from the students and parents because it is not as easy as staying after school for practise. Some students on the team must now travel to the practises, depending on which school is the host school. So far, Seba Beach has been the host school. This was a challenge that most students and parents were willing to take so that they can play the sports they love.

This school year there were two West End teams for volleyball, with students coming from Wabamun, Seba Beach and Tomahawk. The teams formed were a junior girls’ team, coached by Katherine Kindrat (Seba Teacher) and a senior girls’ team coached by Stephanie Khondowe-Wong (Seba Teacher). It was a season of growth and learning for the players, coaches and parents. It was a season of success for the junior and senior girls. Both teams overcame obstacles and developed friendships that will continue to grow throughout the school years.

The junior girls WEST STARS were able to reach a high level of success this season. They had their shares of wins and losses throughout the regular season. The team attended two tournaments. The first tournament at Living Waters helped these girls to see that they were just as good as all the other teams. The second tournament closer to the end of the season at Spruce Grove Composite High school was where these STARS really began to shine brightly. The girls played hard and came together as a team should and made it to the Association finals. The final match was very close and the girls came home with Second place, beating out many schools in Parkland County that have not had to face the challenges of combining students from different schools to make a team. It was wonderful to see!

When the tryouts were held for basketball, the turnout was awesome. There were enough boys and girls from the four schools that three teams will be made for the basketball season. From this turnout there was a developmental team formed with grade 5 and 6 students coached by Mr. Ferzli (Seba Teacher), a senior girls’ team coached by Katherine Kindrat (Seba Teacher) and a senior boy’s team also coached by Mr. Ferzli.

The season has already started and although the outcomes of the games have not been in the WEST STARS favor so far, we just need a little while to get the team polished up so we can really shine out there! It looks to be a busy season for all those involved. A four-School basket-ball team is another first for Parkland County West End Schools and is another exciting first for the WEST STARS sports team.

The game schedule has been made with games being held on Tuesdays after 4pm start, the tournament dates set with the Memorial Tournament on February 15th and 16th and the Championship Basketball tournament will be held March 5,6,7,8,9 & 11th in Stony Plain or Spruce Grove. The players are excited for this opportunity to come together and shine. Let’s Go STARS!

WE day 2012 – Karl

February1

For those of you who don’t know what WE day is I’ll tell you. We day is the celebration of WE! It is about all of us coming together and showing what we can all do together. So on October 24, 2012 in the Saddle Dome in Calgary Alberta over 1800 youth and a group of artists including  Shawn Desman,  Jesse Giddings, Hedley, Lights gathered to  show their support.. Other spokes men, athletes or speakers include  Mikhail Gorbachev, a Cirque du Soleil, Founder’s initiative Chief George Stanley, Jessi Cruikshank, Theo Fleury, Rick Hansen, Amanda Lindhout, Liz Murray, Spencer West. They all spoke about how we all make change whether it be as small as picking up trash or as big as inspiring a country it all helps out a little bit. One of the performers that really stood out to me was a man named Spencer West he was a part of numerous fundraisers mostly to get clean water for those who cant afford it in third worlds countries. So some time last year West tried to raise money by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro he successfully climbed the mountain and reached his goal for fundraising. Oh yeah also did I mention he has no legs? Due to a genetic disorder his legs were amputated when he was a baby. This show that even if you have disabilities don’t let it hold you back. Some of the speeches about hope and differences for the better could of easily been life changing  and if the chance ever arises I highly recommend you attend the celebration.
