Students Win at BC Winter Games

Forty-one athletes from Burnaby Schools competed at the BC Winter Games held in Fort St. John in February, with 25 of our students taking home medals (see the full list below).

The competition brings together the province’s best emerging high performance athletes, trained coaches, and certified officials for four days of celebration of sport and community. From archery to speed skating and everything in between, there are fifteen sports included. The experience is an important development opportunity and stepping stone towards higher level sport competitions.

Additionally, Burnaby Central student David Choo served as a karate official and Moscrop student Joshua Noble was a karate coach.

Congratulations to all!
