·         The Jr girls rugby team travelled to STA yesterday to compete in their final tournament of the season.  They were missing many players, but still managed some great rugby- finishing the tournament in second place.  Two winning tries scored by Natalie Mastrangelo- we couldn’t have won without her.  Hailey Jeffries and Ella Smyth passed their captaincy on to the first players Kathy Verth and Elle Gonsalves who will be leading the Jr girls to victory next year.  Great season ladies – your coaches are very proud.


·         Do you need volunteer hours?  Maplegrove Public School needs volunteers for their school fair on Wed June 5th from 4-8 PM.  Please see the OTHS website for details on how to sign up.


·         Congratulations to the Junior boys soccer team for making it to the Championship for the second year in a row.  In a phenomenal showing Ethan Mendes scored a hat trick. But three goals wasn’t enough, Anthony Testa and Tyler Dawson also scored.  This game and this season have truly been a team effort. 


·         A reminder to all Sr rugby players to pay  your OFSAA fees and hand in signed waivers to Mr Schaffler by today.
