A fan cheers during Game 7 at Central City plaza.

Proud to be a Canucks’ fan

Our grade 2 class at Surrey Centre Elementary School had a very interesting discussion about the Stanley Cup final and what happened after the game in Vancouver.

My Grade 2 students shared their thoughts and feelings and then wrote letters to the Canucks wanting them to know they were still their  fans even after their loss. They were concerned the Canucks’ were feeling bad and wanted to send words of encouragement.

Many important lessons were learned in our discussion about sportsmanship and what it means to be a responsible fan and citizen. The following is one such letter from a student:

Dear Canucks,

Congratulations for getting to the Stanley Cup final and working so hard. I am very proud of you guys. Watching you guys made me feel proud that I am a Canuck.  You are the best team in the entire universe! You guys taught me that no matter what sport you play you should try your hardest and never give up no matter how much you are loosing by. Even when you get benched you still are very special to me.

I am sorry that some of the people were acting very silly after the game. I felt really sad that they were acting that way and did not show good sportsmanship. They were not being very good citizens.

Remember that I’ll always be your NUMBER ONE fan! Have a great summer with your family!

From Paige, Grade 2 Student , Surrey Centre Elementary School.
