Student-Teacher Hockey Game

Hockey

On December 20th, Dawson Creek Secondary School – South Peace Campus is hosting a Student/Teacher hockey game at the Memorial Arena. The purpose of the game is to provide a fun community-building activity for the school. Students and staff will be departing the school at 12:50pm with their A-Block class and walking to the Memorial Arena.  Students will be dismissed after the game from the arena.  There was high demand from students to compete with the teachers for the “Penguin Cup” so two student teams have been created.

There will be three 20-minute games during the event with the following schedule:

 

  • 1:10 – 1:30 Teachers vs. Students ‘A’
  • 1:40 – 2:00 Students ‘A’ vs. Students ‘B’
  • 2:10 – 2:30 Teachers vs. Students ‘B’

Donation Towards Pat O'Reilly Outdoor Education Site

Alain Montambauld from Enercon presented a cheque for $8955.20 to SD59‘s Mike Readman (Director of instruction) and Brad Booker (District Vice-Principal of Careers and Outdoor/Experiential Ed). The donation is targeted toward SD59’s Pat O’Reilly Outdoor Education site at Gwillim Lake. Pat O’Reilly was also in attendance at the cheque presentation.

The cheque represents the proceeds from the sale of scrap metal left over from the building of the Aeolis Moose Lake Wind Project, near Tumbler Ridge.

Developed in partnership with Boralex Inc. and based on an Electricity Purchase Agreement (EPA) from BC Hydro concluded in December 2015, the project features Class 1 winds (average wind speed of >8.5 m/sec) captured by four 4.2 MW Enercon E141 turbines.

Moose Lake is the first site in North America at which the E141 turbines—amongst the biggest land-based wind turbines in the world—have been installed. These giant turbines have a rotor diameter of 141m (462 ft) that efficiently captures the strong, smooth and unidirectional winds of the high-elevation ridges of the Peace River Region. With a gross capacity factor exceeding 50% the Moose Lake Wind Project will produce energy at a level comparable to large BC Hydro projects like Site C.

Moose Lake Wind Project is the first true high-energy wind site to be developed in BC. Visit Moose Lake Wind Project
