Earth Week Awareness Event

Yesterday on the 1st floor outside the cafeteria, we were provided some delicious soups and salads for only $3. There was a delicious smell as we went to the cafeteria. many people came there to buy and support this event. As we walked through the hallway, we saw many students sitting down with the food they had bought from the event and many of them were very satisfied. If you didn't have a chance to come and eat, it is available for the whole week! The amount of food is limited so please hurry.
 
PS. If you bring your own eating container and utensil, you can get your food at the discount price of only $1!

Come join our waste-free lunches!

The goal of this event is to help schools decrease the amount of garbage they produce and to educate students, staff and parents about waste reduction. Since our time is rather limited, the lunch stations will be ready after 12:45. We also added a schedule of events for the week on the first floor so everyone knows exactly what lunchtime foods will be offered each day. At the end of Earth Week, another table will be added displaying our waste-reduction results.

Point Grey Golf Team

After a strong 2013 season, finishing 8th place in the province, the Point Grey golf team is looking good again this year. In the first three matches, the hounds have a perfect 3-0 record against local highschools. Yesterday, at the tough Point Grey Golf Club, the Hounds pulled off a decisive win with just 3 players! Here were the winning scores: Jackson Thornley...75, Matt Pearson...82 and Spencer Bowring...101. Keep up the the great golf!

Gran Forza Track & Field Meet

On March 29 at the Gran Forza Track & Field Meet at the Richmond Olympic Oval, 5 grade nine members of Point Grey’s Track & Field team registered some remarkable performances. In fact, their performances were so impressive that they wound up co-winners of a bursary scholarship for being the top performing team in the juvenile division. Here are the results:
In the 800 metre race, Thomas Nobbs placed 2nd overall with an incredible time of 2:11.57. In the standing long jump, Jaden Konishi placed 3rd with a leap of 2.59m. In the 50 metre sprint, Ben Wang finished 3rd in a phenomenal 6.58 seconds. In the shot put, Jacob Knight launched the shot an impressive 9.09m for 6th place in the event. Finally, an electrifying 4x200 metre relay team comprised of Rafid Haq, Thomas Nobbs, Jaden Konishi, and Ben Wang placed 3rd overall in a lightning fast 1:49.08, finishing 5 spots ahead of their arch rivals from Lord Byng. We are incredibly proud of these 5 boys who are members of a team that won the team aggregate trophy as bantams last year. LADIES & GENTLEMEN…for crying out loud…RELEASE THE HOUNDS

Canadian Computing Competition

In late February, 14 brave Hounds participated in the 2014 Canadian Computing Competition organized by The Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing at the University of Waterloo. For most it was their first experience attempting such a challenge so all participants who gave it their best should be proud of their efforts.
 
The results are in and a few of our top performers deserve special recognition. Grade 11s John Fraser and Laura Sayson scored strongly just behind the top performers while Grade 12 Eric Chen dazzled with only a single small error in his skillfully crafted programming solutions. The distinction of the top performance from Point Grey this year goes to Grade 12 Vincent Chen who triumphantly completed the competition with a perfect score, for which he will be rewarded with a monetary prize and a commemorative plaque.
 
Congratulations Hounds and thank you for your interest in computer science!

PW Jr Ultimate Tournament

Prince of Wales Secondary School hosted a charity ultimate tournament on Saturday, April 5th.  Though the weather that day was terrible, it did not stop ultimate teams from Gladstone, Churchill, Prince of Wales and Point Grey from playing heated games of ultimate.  Point Grey did an excellent job at this tournament; winning all four of their games, and thus placing first. 

One big highlight of the tournament was during Point Grey's game against Gladstone.  Point Grey had thrown the disc out, and right when it looked like it was going to be a turnover, Grayson Taylor caught the disc and threw it back into play while midair.  His throw was caught in the end zone, and gave Point Grey the point.

Keep up the great work Hounds!
