The annual North Vancouver Elementary Athletic Association Track and Field Meet was held on June 4, 2019, at Swangard Stadium. Once again, the event was a huge success, with 1,119 athletes competing!
- Track - 100m, 200m, 400m, and 800m events for grades 4-7 and 1500m are for grades 6 & 7 only.
- Field - long jump, triple jump, high jump and shot put.
This phenomenal event would not happen without the dedication of volunteers. A leadership committee of 14 people organize the key roles at Swangard Stadium and support the track qualifications at Handsworth Secondary. Each school belongs to a Zone that has a Zone Coordinator that works with their schools for mini meets and the qualification meets. Each school has a coordinator.
The majority of volunteers are teachers, education assistants and administrators at the school level, who do a vast amount of work! Most could not make it to the final Swangard event, but it is their hard work that makes the final event possible. Thank you!
At the Swangard event, 62 school staff were running the events and supervising the students. Other volunteers included 31 staff from the Education Services Centre, 29 students, 12 alumni volunteers, four teacher candidates, and three School Board Trustees.
Thank you to all of the staff and student volunteers who have made this year's season and culminating event a special opportunity for students.
