Carihi celebrates its sports history

Carihi is looking forward to celebrating its 50th anniversary this year

Carihi is looking forward to celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

The Physical Education department is taking this opportunity to celebrate the many achievements of past and present sports teams. There will be a number of honour boards that will take pride of place in the gym as of the next month. In addition there will be a Welcome to Carihi sign as a focal point in the gym.

The first honour board will highlight all the Island Championships the school has won in the  over the five decades. The second honour board will show all the Provincial Championship appearances. The third board will provide the opportunity to recognize any individuals who represented Carihi in a sport and have gone on to achieve National recognition in sports beyond their years at Carihi.

Staff at Carihi have done its best to confirm the honour boards will be correct but are seeking help from Alumni staff and students who might be able to add further information to the various boards.

The school is still seeking names to complete the School Male and Female Athletes of the year for the years 1966,70,75,76,78 and 79.

Anyone who can add information should contact Carihi Athletic Director John Jepson at john.jepson@sd72.bc.ca
