Students from Ionview Public School in Scarborough were thrilled to be a part of the Turkish Society of Canada Annual Children's Day Special Olympics Ontario Event held at Centennial College on May 1st.  The venue, at the Athletic Center on Centennial College's Progress Avenue campus, was excellent.  The students heard speeches and recited the athlete's oath before the games began. 

The grades 5 to 8 students enthusiastically participated in a well-organized circuit of adapted sports activities.  These adapted activities included bowling, bocci ball, soccer, baseball, and basketball to name a few.  Cheering on every student at every station were the wonderful volunteers who encouraged every student to try their best and have fun.   

Following the activities, the students received their personalized certificates as well as a gift bag with pedometers and Special Olympics Ontario shoelaces.  The cafeteria where lunch was served was abuzz with excited and happy voices.  Overall the experience was fun and rewarding giving Ionview students a great feeling of accomplishment.
