This past Sunday, 40 grade 9 students participated in the 20 kilometers of Brussels, as the culminating project for their Health class. Already in February, students set a goal for themselves to jog/run 5, 10, or 20 kilometers during this big event. In Health class students trained weekly and also reflected on their progress in their training plan.
Early morning on Sunday, students, parents, and teachers came into Brussels by train and Metro and then set off to run their portion of the race at different points on the course. Students can be proud of their dedication and hard work. They all reached their goals and some even surpassed them. Ignace finished the 20K in 1.43.41, followed by place Pierre-Louis in 1.54.34. Soraya was the first girl in 1.55.58 followed by Alexandra in 1.57.42.
