Over 95 city championship banners, won since 1993, are on display in the gym.  Many Kitsilano students move into their post-secondary studies with the help of an athletic scholarships, and the school boasts several famous sports alumnae including 3-time Gold medallist, Olympic rower Kathleen Heddle, and pro-rugby player Justin Mensah-Coker. “There are so many special historical moments in terms of winning trophies and championships, and the individuals, the novice players who practice throughout the year and show participation, excellence, energy and enthusiasm.”
With the construction of new facilities, the tradition will continue to grow.
