This year's annual District 16 Track and Field Meet at JMH will be held on June 23rd this year. The buses will be leaving the school directly after our morning announcements as the meet will start at 9:00 am, and finish at approximately 1:00pm. Parents are more than welcomed to come and cheer on their children. We ask that all students are well supplied from home with sunscreen and water for this day as many years before have been extremely hot. In addition to the sunscreen and water students must also bring a bagged lunch for this even because there will be no canteen available. The track events will be as follows: 1200m run (3 laps around the track), 200m sprint, 100m sprint, 50m hurdles, javelin, long jump/standing broad jump for grade 3 students, softball throw, discuss, 4x100m relay and the school mixed 4x100m relay. Each student is asked to choose their favorite 3 events to participate in and the teachers do their best to accommodate the students' wishes. Blackville will be competing against the rural schools of the District during this day which include, Burnt Church, Elsipogtog, Harcourt, Metepenagiag, Millerton, N.S.E.E, and Tabusintac. Our school's Physical Education Specialists are busy preparing our students for this event and we hope the students have a fun-filled, safe day! Go EAGLES!!
