NCR Crossfit

Crossfit is a strength and conditioning program that is constantly varied with high intensity and functional movements.  Last week the senior personal fitness classes had an opportunity to visit NCR Crossfit for an informational and high intensity training session. The students were challenged with a squat seminar, an AMRAP workout and motivated each other throughout the mentally and physically demanding session. 

This is one of many field trips the senior personal fitness classes will be going on this semester as the course really focuses on life long physical activity and strives to show students how they can be active and engaged in their community long after high school.  It was a great day and the students really showed awesome #LionsPride!

Students sock away money; High school company combats clothes-eating washers

The theories that attempt to explain how a pair of socks can enter a washer or dryer and come out minus one are numerous and wild.

While some propose a wormhole or and alternate dimension is the reason for their lost sock, others claim their washer or dryer is indeed sentient and feeding on their clothes.

But no matter how complicated the theories get, the solution is simple says a group of entrepreneurs from Earl of March Secondary School: socks with snaps.

That’s the idea that has netted this student start up over $1,000 in sales mid-February. The company, named Enssemble, is currently leading in a competition with three other Ottawa school-based companies – one at Glebe Collegiate (Band.It), another at John McCrae (#Qualitee) and the third at De La Salle (Creaculte).

While Band.It’s headbands, #Qualitee’s custom hashtag T-shirts and Creacutle’s plant pots are having success of their own, it’s the socks that are taking a step ahead of the others.
