March Madness in April – Guys Night In @ St. Joe’s S.S.
St. Joseph Secondary School hosted its 2nd annual “Guys Night In – March Madness” for Boys in Grades 9 and 10 on Thursday, April 3, 2014. Grade 10s continue to participate in this event, in response to our growing “student voice” from our CCCCAT Climate Survey data, which indicated that Grade 10s boys wanted a greater sense of inclusion within the school community.
The day began with a Cops vs. Cancer fundraiser where Peel Police squared off against our Senior Boys Basketball team in front of a packed gymnasium. One of the highlights of the event took place during the half time show where NPU – Mark MacIntosh (see image) had his head shaved by Vice Principal - Paul Nalli and some senior students in support of the cause.
The evening began with a liturgy based on our theme of “Being Truly Blessed” and a fantastic dinner was served by our hospitality classes. For the remainder of the evening, students participated in a variety of activities such as a 3 on 3 March Madness basketball tournament as well as a “strong man” competition, pit crew competition in the auto shop, woodworking, table tennis, video games, dodge ball and an indoor soccer tournament. Several staff members as well as senior students from our Link Crew Ambassadors and our Senior Boys Basketball Team volunteered to supervise the event. In total, over 170 students participated.
The night was extremely rewarding and it continues to be a huge success as our students came together in a spirit of camaraderie, fun and Faith to help build Jaguar spirit and a stronger sense of community at St. Joe’s.
We all look forward to March Madness 2015.
