This week students from Hudson's Hope will meet Team Canada’s bobsleigh pilot Orion Edwards.
A celebration is being held at Hudson's Hope Elementary to honour students who participated in the Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program, as well as Ms. Suzan Bach who has participated in Classroom Champions since 2018. The celebration will be held at the Hudson Hope Elementary this week.
Team Canada’s bobsleigh pilot and Olympic hopeful, Orion Edwards is a Classroom Champions athlete mentor and will be attending the event.
Over the course of a year-long curriculum, students are taught critical skills such as goal setting, teamwork, and leadership, as well as perseverance. To improve student engagement in the class and to inspire a positive educational environment, Classroom Champions brings together world class athletes with students.
“What I couldn’t have expected about my time working with Classroom Champions is how much I have been inspired by the curiosity, kindness, and resilience from these students. They have shown great growth, and desire to learn about what it means to train on the world-stage. I cannot wait to meet them in person, and make a lasting impression as I instill confidence that they can chase their dreams whatever ‘tunnel’ they choose to pass through in life!” said Edwards in an email.
