Book Drive

There is a book drive happening at Claremont from now until June 15th.  The collection of books is being coordinated by the Victoria City Police Youth Council/Youth for Change and Inclusion. All books will help build a library for a downtown outreach program to support people struggling with homelessness.  Books will ideally be suitable for ages 18-30 and be in decent condition.  They can be dropped off in a bin at the school office.  They are also looking for donations of a few book shelves for the library.  Questions can be directed to Nathan at: ycilibrarian@gmail.com

No news today.

Scrum Fest
Claremont is hosting our 9th annual Spartan Scrum Fest rugby tournament this week from THURSDAY-SATURDAY.  This is the largest exhibition high school rugby tournament in western Canada.  The games will be running on both Claremont fields all day for all three days.  We will have our concession tent up and running with burgers, chips, drinks, etc. The cafeteria will have very limited service during the event. 

On FRIDAY, we hope that all classes attend the main event match starting at 2 p.m. on the field inside our Track.  Students and staff can sit in the bleachers, on the track, or view from the bank, looking down on the game.  The bell schedule will be adjusted so that all classes end at 1:45 so that we can all show our school spirit and watch some great rugby. Wear red and any school colours you have in your wardrobe!!

Rugby players, please remember to communicate with your teachers regarding your games and volunteer shifts. Also, don't forget to record your volunteer shifts on the sign-up sheet by the PE Office.
