Three weeks of classes left.  Keep working hard!

 

 

This week were our Awards Day Assemblies as well as our Major Awards Night Presentation.  For all of our students were and were not recipients of awards, this is a night to reflect on how much we have grown as learners over the course of the year.  It is a night to celebrate our accomplishments and make plans to continue to work towards the success we deserve.  For those receiving an award, it is simply the icing on the cake.  The true success is on how hard we worked and how much we have truly achieved.  Congratulations to all the students at McRoberts!

Former McRoberts Students Continue to Shine

 

Edmonton, AB. – Lieutenant (Navy) Kelsey Chang, Lieutenant Cassidy Chang and Lieutenant Delanie Chang are representing Canada at the International Military Sports Council’s (CISM) 19th World Military Volleyball Championships hosted by Canada in Edmonton, Alberta from 28 May- 3 June 2018. The Chang sisters are originally from Ladner, BC; and attended high school in Richmond, BC at Hugh McRoberts Secondary School.

 

Lieutenant (Navy) Kelsey Chang is a Naval Reserve Personnel Selection Officer for the 33rd Canadian Brigade Group Headquarters in Ottawa, ON. Kelsey attended the Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC) from 2009-2013 and graduated with a Bachelors of Military Psychology and Leadership. During her studies, she was an active member of the RMCC Varsity Volleyball team, and received team MVP and the All Canadian Academic Award in her fourth year. Kelsey has been a member of the CISM team since 2011 and has played both libero and setter; this year she will be representing Canada as the Libero. 

 

Lieutenant Cassidy Chang is an Airforce Aerospace Engineer Officer at 430 Tactical Helicopter Squadron in Valcartier, QC. Cassidy attended RMCC from 2012-2016; she graduated with a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and received the HRH Price of Whales Award in her fourth year. She was the starting Setter for her 4 years at RMCC and ended her season with the CIS Award of Merit. Cassidy has been a member of this team since 2014 and will be representing Canada as the Setter this year.  

 

Lieutenant Delanie Chang is an Airforce Logistic Officer at 470 Long Range Patrol Squadron in Comox, BC. Delanie attend RMCC from 2012-2016 and graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration. She played varsity volleyball all throughout her studies at RMCC and received team MVP and the All Canadian Academic Award in her fourth year. Delanie ranked number 1 in digs for the tournament last year in Mayport, Forida at her first CISM championship. This year, Delanie will be representing Canada as an outside hitter.

 

The CISM program was created in 1948 in order to bring countries together to gain “Friendship through Sport”. CISM is one of the largest multidisciplinary organizations in the world with 134 member countries. Every four years there is the World Military Games where all the athletes from all the sports come together and compete; and during the off years, there are individual sports World Championships, and this year, Canada is hosting both Men’s and Women’s Volleyball. This is an amazing opportunity for Canada and its athletes as it will lead them in to the next CISM World Games in China 2019.

 

This is the first year that all three Chang sisters will be representing Canada together and they are beyond excited to do it at home! The Chang sisters wanted to make a special shout out to their High School Coaches: Trish Nicholson and Stephanie Knowles; it was them who made them fall in love with the game and lead them on this journey to represent Canada at an international level.
