LCSS students switching off in a good old fashion game of softball. This was the seniors versus the juniors game.

Fun in the sun at LCSS

The day, known as Rec Day, is an annual event that gives students from Grades 6-12 a chance to let loose and have some fun!

Last Friday afternoon Lake Cowichan Secondary School held a recreational day.

The day, known as  Rec Day, is an annual event that gives students from Grades 6-12 a chance to let loose and have some fun! There were many activities which took place on the school’s main field.

There was a one-on-one gladiator game. For this event, students had to wear helmets and use cushioned poles to attack each other with while standing on poles above the ground.

As well, there was a bungee run. The bungee run took place on an inflatable track. Students were attached to a bungee cord and the object of the game was to run as far as they could and attach a bag with a piece of Velcro sewn onto it to the distance they ran to.

The day also included softball games. There was Grade 8s versus the staff as a hello to high school event, and a seniors versus juniors game, which meant that the Grade 9s and 10s went head to head against the Grade 11s and 12s. And the main game, the Grade 12s versus the staff, was a good-bye game.

Inside the school there were a couple of events going on. Ms. Taylor applied (temporary) henna tattoos and a dance challenge took place, where students challenged each other to a dance off.

“It is nice to have a day where kids can just be kids, and not have to be all grown up and stuff,” said Grade 8 student, Isabella Kuta.

“It’s really nice to get an afternoon to relax and have fun, especially at this time of the year, when there’s some much stress and pressure,” said Grade 9 student, Aislinn McKeown Ferris.

The students of LCSS had an amazing time being able to attend Rec Day because of it’s joyfulness, excitement, and just the fact that it was fun. Rec Day is a day many will remember.
