October 19th was a city-wide professional development day (in other words: a day off school) but for 6 students it meant getting down to business. Instead of sleeping in, they got to school by 9 am and for a warm up played an intense hour’s worth of indoor soccer. Once we were all nice and sweaty, we took off for Deep Cove.
The Deep Cove run is a tradition at Streetfront. It’s 18.8 km and offers a host of challenges (large hills; rolling ups and downs; the 2nd Narrows Bridge) for those ready to take up the challenge.
All the kids were great. We had 2 newbies on the run: Segar – a grade 8 student and Jesse – a gr. 10 girl, both did fabulously. I always find it amazing that these kids just show up and with no hesitation or trepidation, go out and tackle such challenges. There aren’t many kids like them – and I’m sure glad they all found their way to Streetfront.
Streetfront ventured out on its annual fall camping trip to Manning Provincial Park. 18 students and 4 staff loaded up the bus and took off, looking for adventure and a welcome break from the ills of the city.
The trip was fantastic. Numerous hikes; walks in the woods; swimming in the lake (it was +24 Celsius); telling ghost stories and getting to know one another around the campfire. Barry took a group of the senior students on a wonderful overnight backpack trip to Buck Horn wilderness campsite on the approach to the Three Brothers Alpine Hike.
