Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to the 8th Annual C4 for Charity!

I extend a warm Centennial welcome to you all as you enjoy some early season basketball action. There is nothing better than hearing bouncing basketballs mixed with the squeaking of court shoes on the gym floor to get you amped up for another exciting basketball season!!

The Charger Charity Classic is unique in the province as it combines a top notch display of basketball skills with the philanthropic purpose of raising money for charity. The Saskatchewan Children's Hospital Foundation has been the benefactor of over $15 000 to date and this year we hope to add to the total in a significant way.

Centennial's own Holiday Hamper initiative also benefits from the donations of food items as staff and students help create and deliver food hampers to families in our own community during the holiday season. By all accounts the tournament is a win- win!!!

I give thanks to Mr. Dawe and Mrs. Brimacombe, co-chairs of the Charger Classic. Without their dedication and commitment to detail the tournament would not be the show case event that it currently is. With their guidance, the staff and students of Centennial have embraced the event and have truly made it a community event. Thanks to one and all!!

In closing, I wish the players and their coaches all the best as they combine great sportsmanship with strong athleticism. To the fans, please enjoy the talent that is exhibited on the basketball court ...cheer loudly!!! It is my genuine hope that all that have been involved in this tournament will leave our school gym knowing that they have helped to make the fabric of our school and community much stronger.
