Similkameen Elementary Secondary School students and Cawston Primary students gathered for a day of track and field activities at SESS on Friday, May 30.

Grades four to seven participated in the local track event. Winning students qualified for the District meet, being held in Osoyoos on June 13. All SESS elementary students could also earn points for their house league teams.

It took a special effort to organize the track meet this year said SESS teacher Rick Johnson, noting staff and the principal worked together to make it happen, in light of teachers’ reduced school day,  precipitated by recent job action in the province’s schools. Senior students were put to work helping record track and field results throughout the day.

The students finished the afternoon with a 1.6 kilometre “marathon”, while students 11 and under participated in a 1.2 kilometre run.
