Canadian National Sprint Canoe Kayak Championships!

After a busy summer preparing for the Canadian National Sprint Canoe Kayak Championships, Kaitlin Bird, Gr. 12 Sacred Heart student, with her Senobe teams, won the Gold medal for the Midget level war canoe, Gold medal for the Women’s War canoe and the Bronze medal for the Juvenile War Canoe. With 42 clubs and over 1000 paddlers participating at the Montreal site from across Canada, the Senobe girls from Dartmouth also earned the overall highest Burgee points for the Midget Girls category! Kaitlin’s two K-4 boats also went to finals with a sixth and nine place finish overall. Congratulations to Kaitlin and all her team mates!

Also, following her recent and wonderful school trip to Kenya, Kaitlin and her friend Emma Churchill, Gr. 12, raised over $140 dollars for FREE THE CHILDREN by asking for donations in lieu of birthday gifts at their summer Luau birthday party. Well done girls!
