BPDS Cohorts Participate in Cross Country
Submitted by Matt Pickett, BPDS Principal
Each year Bruce Peninsula District School (BPDS) athletes compete in Cross country. It is a sport built for socially distancing. In this picture (below) the rabbit, James Wheeler (who also gained a spot on the BPDS Cross Country top ten record board for his win in the grade 7/8 boys race), is leading the athletes through the race course. Students competed as a cohort for Phys Ed to accommodate appropriate distancing. We so want things to return to normal – this day provided a little bit of that.
