Dufferin Students & Community Celebrate Successful Hockey & Skating Season

The Dufferein Hockey Academy celebrated the conclusion of its fourth extremely successful season with a proud march through the community on March 16.

The Dufferin Hockey Academy celebrated the conclusion of its fourth extremely successful season with a proud march through the community on March 16.

Students and staff from the schools involved, community volunteers as well as Cadets and police officers from involved in the program took part in the event which started at Dufferin School and ended at their home rink – Pioneer Arena.

The day’s events culminated with a skills competition, to showcase the abilities of the program’s participants, and a community skate.

The success of the program stems from directly from a community-based approached with support from everyone involved. 

“It has been, and continues to be, totally awe-inspiring,” says Cst. Garnie McIntyre, School Resource Officer at Dufferin School and Hugh John MacDonald.  
  
“Winnipeg Police Service and Police Cadets have partnered with Dufferin Elementary School, Hugh John MacDonald Junior High and Freight House with the main goal to keep children engaged in a positive, healthy atmosphere.”

Shaw TV came out earlier in the season to look at the Laern to Skate portion of Dufferin School's winter program. Here's what they reported.

The Dufferin Hockey Academy is aimed primarily at aboriginal youth between the ages of five and 13.

The program takes place Wednesdays throughout the school year.

About 75 kids take part with the Winnipeg Police Service members along with community members volunteering their time to make it possible.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this season a success on and off the ice!

Thank you Dufferin community for including us.
