CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada is excited to recognize Cole Harbour District High School in Dartmouth, N.S., for its outstanding contributions to the schools program that ran in conjunction with the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship.

Hockey Canada’s director of female council Joanne Hughes, along with Ontario Women’s Hockey Association vice-chair Fran Rider and steering committee representative Pat Nicholls, stopped by Cole Harbour District High School on Thursday morning to present two autographed Team Canada jerseys to staff and students, as a “thank you” for volunteering their time to create school curriculum that spans several grade levels and subjects.

Principal Debbie Rowsell, vice-principals Craig Campbell, Barrett Khan and Nigel Mailman, fine arts and technology department head Ken Johnson and seven other teachers developed lesson plans centred around the importance of female sport in courses ranging from mathematics and science, to language arts and social studies, to fine arts and food studies, and even career development.

Staff and students also choreographed The Hockey Stomp, a dance to the tune of The Hockey Song by the late Stompin’ Tom Connors, which was performed in rinks and schools across the country during the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Championship, which took place April 2-9 in Ottawa, Ont.

“We are absolutely thrilled to present Cole Harbour District High School with two jerseys signed by Canada’s National Women’s Team, one to hang on its walls and the other to support educational programming,” said Hughes, who is also past-chair for Hockey Nova Scotia’s female council. “The administrative staff, teachers and students there have created educational and entertaining curriculum that can be used by schools across the country for years to come.”

All lesson plans created for the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship, including how to dance The Hockey Stomp, are available for download online at www.hockeycanada.ca/schoolprogram.

“Cole Harbour District High School is proud to have played a role in the success of this year’s women’s world championship,” Rowsell said. “We hope teachers and students in all provinces continue to take full advantage of the resources available online, which not only help kids get excited about team sports and fitness, but also teach important lessons in fun and interactive ways.”

The 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship was hosted in partnership by Hockey Canada, the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association and Senators Sports and Entertainment. It was the sixth time Canada has hosted the women’s world championship, joining 1990 also in Ottawa, 1997 in Kitchener, Ont., 2000 in Mississauga, Ont., 2004 in Halifax, N.S., and 2007 in Winnipeg, Man.
