The Mother Teresa Catholic School of Halkirk boys’ and girls’ basketball teams played last weekend in Stettler in the CARA basketball tournament.
Congratulations to the girls’ team, which won the CARA tournament, and to the boys’ team, which placed third.
Both teams have qualified for the CWAJHAA tournaments in Rocky Mountain House and Caroline this weekend.
Much like students elsewhere in the Clearview School Division, Halkirk school kids are going to enjoy an extra-long weekend this week because of the teachers’ convention this Thursday and Friday.
Tony and Clara Nibourg, along with their children and grandchildren, shared a great holiday at Cayo Santo Maria, which is a small island north of Cuba. It was beautiful and sunny, with an amazing beach that was enjoyed by all 11 of them.
Don’t forget the bingo at the hall on Thursday at 7:30.
Visit the curling rink to watch the upcoming games and if you like to play crib, there’s a crib tournament on March 16.
Remember on Saturday night to change your clocks to make way for the beginning of Daylight Savings Time.
