Seven Summits Centre for Learning in Rossland held eventful and successful weekend

The last weekend of November was busy for staff and students of Seven Summits Center for Learning

The last weekend of November was busy and fun for the staff and students of the Seven Summits Center for Learning, as well as all who came out in order to make the weekend such a roaring success.

“A Night Out in Rossland” was full to capacity at the Old Fire Hall thanks to the amazing food from Cahoots Kitchen, the live music by Eric Brown and the incredible prizes donated by several local businesses.

With babysitting held next door by students of the centre, who could resist?

“How often do we Rosslanders get to dress up and go out without our toques?” asked Andrea Pierce, the main mastermind behind the event.

“All money raised will go to experiential learning opportunities — field trips, outdoor ed, our big camping trip at the beginning of the year,” Pierce added.

Fun was had by all, with many asking for it to become an annual event.

And what better way to recover from a night out in Rossland than with Bill Green and Triple Play Athletic Promotion?

The event focused on the importance of athletic promotion and following your goals.

There were family specific workshops over the weekend as well as one-on-one sessions.

When asked for some feedback given from attendees, Peirce had this to say, “Parents were amazed with Bill’s enthusiasm and passion to work with families in helping student-athletes reach their goals. Bill is extremely knowledgeable in learning how to navigate the recruiting process and how to best present yourself to potential coaches, teams, sponsors and mentors.”
