Friday morning (Apr. 20) at St. Anthony's School, a pep rally was organized to support the community of Humboldt, Saskatchewan after the bus tragedy on April 6.
The pep rally was organized by the Recreational Leadership Class and had students from the little league teams to middle school students take part in different sports and activities.
"We organized it to support the tragedy in Humboldt for the Broncos team and what happened there," said Gunner Hauer, senior student and president of the Recreational Leadership Class at St. Anthony's. "(It was) to support them and have some fun while we're at it."
Hauer notes that the event was not to raise money, more so to raise spirits and show support.
"It was super fun. We had the little league thing going," he continued. "We had the basketball team set up and had them come back out to play a game today."
The little leagues played some basketball while the middle school students faced off against teachers in a floor hockey game, green shirts vs. yellow shirts
The crowd was roaring as the little leaugues approached basketball nets as many of the young children beamed with smiles listening to the crowd cheering them on.
The teachers won the floor hockey scrimmage, but according to Hauer, everyone had a good time and points meant nothing.
"We might be doing more with the little league kids (in the future) as well as more pep rallies," Hauer said, explaining plans for the future. "Shout out to the Recreational Leadership Class."
