Our classroom teachers have received brand new tablets for their classes.  With this exciting news, teachers are now able to further assist our students in the classroom by learning to better record the student process in learning.  These tablets will allow our teachers to capture vital evidence of student learning in the classrooms at CPC.  Technology at CPC is on the rise!

Grade 7

The Grade 7 class spent four days together in Halliburton up at Camp Timberlane.  It was an amazing adventure filled with several outdoor educational activities.  Students were able to participate in workshops such as fire building, shelter building, and personal strength building.  They also tested their physical strengths in activities such as the Leap of Faith, hiking, archery and canoeing.  It was a fantastic opportunity for all of our grade 7 students to get to know one another, build new friendships, bond as a class and create memories that will last a lifetime.

               

               


Grade 9

In the first week of October, the Grade 9 class ventured to beautiful Algonquin Park, where they embarked on a 3 day and 2 night camping trip.  For many students (and teachers!) this would be the first time they had ever canoed, slept in a tent, or made food over a campfire.

Our instructors at ALIVE Outdoors made us feel welcomed right as we stepped off the bus.  As we enjoyed the beautiful buildings and nature at Camp Arowhon, we learned how to properly paddle a canoe, how to pack to ensure nothing would get wet, what to do in the case of an emergency, and how to set up tents. That night, the students sat around a large campfire, and spoke excitedly of the camping trip that would begin early the next day.
The students were broken into twelve small groups, giving them the opportunity to spend time with people that they might not normally get to. Without cell phone reception and other technology, students could focus on connecting with nature. The trees were absolutely stunning as they began to change colour, and many of us saw loons, chipmunks, birds, and even moose!
Students who wish to earn their Duke of Edinburgh Award must partake in a camping experience. Our students canoed, portaged, made fire, cooked, cleaned, and slept outside in tents, with the ALIVE instructors only guiding them. The Grade 9s really stepped up and helped one another, to ensure their camping experience was a success.
Although everyone was excited to get back to the city, this was an amazing experience that no one will soon forget!

Soccer

The CPC Senior Boys’ Soccer team played its first home game of the season Wednesday afternoon and they made it a memorable one.  They defeated the traveling Crescent team 6-3. Michael DiBattista notched his very first hat trick in the win. Other goal scorers Jonas Weissland, and Samuel Li who was effective in his role as both a centre attacking and central defending midfielder. Other honourable mentions go to the entire defensive line anchored by Noah Lerner, Amir Rafati, and Rhys Malisch.  Go lions go!

Thursday night the Senior Boys’ Soccer team played away against Bayview Glen. The first 20 minutes were very even and neither team was able to threaten the goal, with Bayview limited to several speculative efforts.  As the half progressed Bayview Glen scored 3 quick goals to take control of the game. However, a well worked free kick between Ege Kuseybat and Dustin Silverberg resulted in Rhys Malisch scoring from close range to reduce the deficit to 3-1 at the half.  With the game close at the half, Crestwood came out determined to fight for the win. The boys created a few chances but were unable to take them, whilst at the other end, Bayview with the help of a freak goal were able to extend their lead and eventually complete a 5-1 victory. Come and support our boys as they face TFS on Monday.

               

               

The U14 Boys’ Soccer team continued their season Monday night against The York School. Crestwood got off to lightning start, with Pharaoh Wendt scoring inside 30 seconds. However, York school began to show more composure and began to dominate the game as the half progressed, and scored several times in a 10 minute burst. At the half, Crestwood trailed 6-1. A spirited fightback in the second half was capped off by a second goal for Pharaoh Wendt. Unfortunately the team was unable to continue applying pressure and the final score was 7-2 to The York School. The whole team had a great second half, but special mention to Pharaoh Wendt, Kyle Little, and Jack Wu for excellent performances throughout.

The U14 Boys’ Soccer team completed their 4th game of the season Wednesday night away to Greenwood College. It was a close match throughout and despite having the better first half, Crestwood was unable to create any real chances at goal. The score at the half was 0-0. Greenwood came out strong in the second half and some very good saves by goalkeeper Patrick Shain kept the game scoreless. The game remained close, and both teams had chances to win the game. However the game would finish 0-0, thanks in large to Jack Wu with some excellent defending and Patrick Shain with some very brave goalkeeping. The U14 boys wrap up their season on Monday at home against Crescent. Come and show your support.

The Junior Boys’ Soccer team battled Trinity College School Tuesday. TCS came out strong taking a commanding 3 goal lead, but Crestwood battled back winning the second half based on shutdown defence from Matthew Rocha and Nasso Colivaras.  Incredible saves from Tim Kufner, including a penalty shot, and creative offensive play from Matteo Khan and Matthew Nelson. Alex Korda scored a beautiful goal, but unfortunately, it was not enough to overcome TCS. Great determination and heart battling back and winning the second half 1-0.

Basketball

The U14 Girls’ Basketball team played an excellent game last night beating BVG 53-23.  It was a team effort and all girls contributed offensively and defensively.  Taija Sta. Marie led the way offensively never missing a layup, and everyone followed with points on the scoreboard.  Our next game is Monday after school at SMLS.

Wednesday night the Junior Lady Lions’ Basketball team took on De La Salle in their home opener and did not disappoint.  Jumping out to a quick lead, the Junior Lady Lions cruised to a 55-18 win!  Great play by all on both sides of the ball, with shout-outs going to Latasha Lattimore who was the games leading scorer, to Ella Lee-O’Rourke, Parmis Shameli and Helen Liu for scoring their first points of the season, and to the rest of the team for their hustle on the court and their leadership on the bench.  Keep up the good work!

               

               

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, our Senior Prep Girls participated in the Shoot For A Cure Showcase.  Going into the game Crestwood was ranked #2 in the country and was taking on #1 St. Laurent out of Quebec.  It was a back and forth game until the fourth quarter when the Lions pulled away.  The Lions were led by the stellar play of Shayeann Day-Wilson, Aaliyah Edwards, Latasha Lattimore, and Kayla Drummond who was named game MVP.   The final score was 83-65 which now places Crestwood as the #1 ranked girls program in the country!

Wednesday our Senior Girls’ Basketball team travelled to De La Salle looking to continue their dominance throughout CISAA play.  After getting off to a slow start, the girls picked up their energy which blew the game wide open.  This was largely due to the sharp shooting of Jadaia Reid.  Final score was Crestwood 73 – De La Salle 41.

Cross Country

Ella Rival, Kyra Grossman, Matthew Laslop, Will Dennison and  Will Magan ran a tough course at the Boyd Conservation Center Monday. Special shout-out goes to Kyra for placing 9th place for junior girls! Incredible job everyone!

          

Congratulations to the U14 Cross Country team, who travelled to Norval for a race on Thursday. Everyone ran well. Special mention to Alex Norman for placing 5th in his race followed by Bradley Norman in 6th place.  Congratulations to the whole team!

     

Volleyball

Thursday, the Junior Boys’ Volleyball team had a very back-and-forth game against Bayview Glen. After losing a set, then winning, then losing another set, and winning again, CPC succumbed in the last set with a very close of score of 13-15. There was great serving from the team, specifically Zach Graf, Jay Lu, and Hayden John.

Coaches Hawkins, Jull and Walker traveled to Burlington Golf and Country Club this past weekend for a coaching clinic run by the National Competitive Coaching Program. Over two days, Crestwood’s curling coaches learned and practiced techniques to help Crestwood curlers reach their full potential as athletes. The clinic also gave the coaches the opportunity to shake off any cobwebs after a summer away from the ice. This opportunity could not have come at a better time, as Crestwood’s curling season is approaching quickly. This upcoming Wednesday at 3:30 in room 206 there will be an important meeting for any returning curlers, as well as anyone interested in participating in Crestwood’s Learn to Curl program. Please contact Mr. Jull, Mr. Walker or Mr. Hawkins if you have any questions.

Basketball

Wednesday our Senior Girls’ Basketball team travelled to TYS to continue their undefeated streak in CISAA play.  Our Lions got off to a slow start,  but once they picked up their pressure there was no looking back.  The Lions were led by the sharp shooting of Rachel Mintz and Megan Pearlman.  The final score was 66-33 Crestwood.

Cross Country

Wednesday the Varsity Cross Country team competed at a meet at Sunnybrook Park.  Congratulations to Ella Rival, Will Dennison, Will Magan, and Jack Magan. Special shoutout to Kyra Grossman for placing third in the junior girls race!

Today, Grade 8 boys Tony Qi and Steven Li had a great race at the Sunnybrook Cross Country meet. Congratulations Tony and Steven!

Soccer

The Senior Boys’ soccer team traveled to Cherry Beach for their match against Greenwood.  Despite a short bench and a number of injured players, CPC made a game of the match, overcoming two one-goal deficits to tie the game. One of CPC’s markers, Jonas Weissland, scored a highlight goal just outside the box, which motivated the team for a while.  The second half however, saw Greenwood extend its leave, as three of our players succumbed to injury. The game ended 5-2.  A special thanks to Junior call ups, Jesse Codron and Alex Korda, for helping the team be a little bit more competitive.

Volleyball

The Senior Boys’ Volleyball team played a hard fought match Monday night against TFS.  After losing the first set, the Lions came back with some hard-hitting to win the next two sets.  Unfortunately, the boys lost in the fifth set but showed resiliency and great effort.  Excellent serving and consistency by Luis Pacheco and great setting and hitting by Trevon Thomas and Immanuel Oludele.

Volleyball

Congratulations to the Senior Boys’ Volleyball team on their win Wednesday against Lakefield College.  Great serving by Luis Pacheco and Matthew Nelsons helped push us past a tenacious Lakefield squad.  Good work gentlemen!

The Senior Boys’ Volleyball team opened up their season Monday with a hard fought game against Greenwood.  Exceptional hitting from Julio and Immanuel and superb serving from Trevon allowed us to stay in the competition pushing the sets to 5. Although we lost in the 5th set the boys played a great game of volleyball and will be contenders moving forward.  Keep hitting boys!

               

The U14 Boys’ Volleyball team had a great start to their season Wednesday with two impressive matches. The boys dominated the court against their first opponents TMS, winning the games 25-9 and 25-18.  Following the first match, CPC had an exciting and close three-set match against Bayview Glen.  After CPC won the first game 25-21, Bayview came back taking the next one 25-22. A nail biting ending had Bayview winning with a close score of 26-24.  Shoutouts go to Aiden Nunes for his consistent awesome serves, Cole Luepann for his hands at the net, and Anthony Cristoforo for the energy he brought to the court. Way to go, guys! Looking forward to what we can do!

Monday, the Junior Boys’ Volleyball team travelled to Greenwood College for their first game of the season. The three sets were competitive and exciting, and each member of the team brought some great plays to the game. Special mentions go out to Samir Bagher Nejad for awesome serves and some hard hits, Hayden John for his great movement on the court and hard spikes, and Elijah Fisher for some fantastic blocks.  The team has great potential, and will continue to improve with practice.

The Junior Boys’ Volleyball Team won their first Home Game Wednesday against Lakefield. The game was won 3 sets to 1, with great plays by all athletes. Josh Carter dominated at the net with awesome hits and blocks, while Robert Dumoulin-White made sure our hitters got the ball with some great sets. Kian Torabi Ardakani’s infamous serves were hard to return, and Hayden John was always on his toes, digging, smashing, or blocking the ball. Great work boys!

               

Soccer

The U14 Boys’ Soccer team kicked off their season with a convincing 12-0 win at Sterling Hall.  The boys led 6-0 at half time thanks to a hattrick from Adam Pearlman and goals from Patrick Shain and captain Jase Todd.   The team didn’t let up after the half and further goals from Patrick and Jase as well as Kyle Little, Kanmi Akodu and Zach Black completed a wonderful victory.  The whole team put in a masterful performance!
The U14 Boys’ Soccer team continued their season Tuesday after school at home against a strong De La Salle team.
The team was on the backfoot early after De La Salle scored a penalty inside the first 5 minutes. Despite some good passing and effort, Crestwood was down 4-0 at half time. After the break, Crestwood showed great fighting spirit and teamwork to pull a goal back when Adam Pearlman scored halfway through the half. Despite a great second where Crestwood was the better team, the boys were unable to mount a comeback, eventually losing 5-1.
All the boys played well again, showing great fight and team work when faced with adversity.
The Junior Boys’ Soccer team started their season off strong with a convincing 4-2 victory against Lakefield College. It was a complete team effort that was highlighted by incredible passing and teamwork. Special mention goes to Adam Pearlman, Alex Korda, Matthew Nelson and Aidan Lieberman for their sensational goals, Jesse Codron and Mateo Rocha for their great play in the midfield and the defence for shutting down Lakefield. Great job boys!

The Senior Boys’ soccer team traveled to Lakefield Wednesday afternoon to play their first game against Lakefield College.  The team started out strong as it took the lead on a well-earned goal by Michael Di Battista, thanks to some good hustle by Ege Kuseybat and Jonas Weissland.  The lead was short lived however, as Lakefield took full advantage of our depleted bench and tired legs, with two goals before the game ended.  Despite generating some chances in the second, the game would end 4-1 in favour of Lakefield.  Kudos go out to the entire team for their heart and effort.

 

Cross Country

A huge congrats goes out to the U14 Cross Country team, as they completed their first meet at Centennial Park. Special kudos goes out to Bradley Norman, for a 4th place finish in his division. Well done everyone!!

               

Basketball

The U14 Girls’ Basketball team opened their season last night at home against the Country Day School.  The team went out strong and never looked back.  Our lady lions scored 61 points and played stellar defense holding Country Day to a mere 16 points.  Everyone contributed to the win;  Taija Sta Marie and Chiara Codron led the way with 14 points each, followed closely by Jordan Kosoy with 13 points and Tinamarie Otchere with 12 points.  Jolie Drummond and Taylor Howell added additional points putting everyone on the board!  Congratulations on a great first win!!!

Wednesday night the Junior Girls’ Basketball team opened their season on the road at Ridley College.  The team went out strong and never looked back.  Our Lady Lions scored a whopping 50 points and played convincing defense only allowing Ridley College to 22 points.  Everyone contributed to the win;  Latasha Lattimore led the way with 18 points, Shayeann Day-Wilson contributed with 14 points, and newcomer Ella Okubasu had 6 points of her own.  Great play by all and congratulations on a great first win of the season!!!

Wednesday night our Senior Lady Lions’ Basketball team travelled to Ridley College where they showed their dominance.  Our Lions took an early lead and never looked back.  The final score was 60-22.
