Peel Dance Showcase
By Joy Lynn and Supreet
In the month of March, 30 talented student from Allan A. Martin attended the Living Arts Center’s Peel Dance Showcase, where schools from all over Peel came together to put on an amazing show. Students from Allan A worked long and hard from the month of February to the end of March. Together, we faced challenges, obstacles and hardships to get to where we were. We were supported by the Allan A. Martin community, students and many teachers, who gave us the motivation and inspiration to create and execute a spectacular dance. Our dance consisted of many cultures, communities and backgrounds to represent the diversity at Allan A. Martin and Peel as a whole. We would like to recognize our dance instructors Ms. Lavalle and Ms. Chopra who spent many hours teaching and perfecting all of the dances, from the moves to the costumes as well as the makeup. In the end we all came together, had a great time and made many memories that would make our year special.

Out of the many girls who tried out only a lucky 17 were chosen to play on the senior girls’ team. The girls trained hard with their coach, Ms. K, for the upcoming tournament which took place on May 19, 2015. At the tournament they were one of twelve teams to participate. The twelve teams were divided into two divisions. The Allan A. Martin girls were in the Black Division. The girls played an amazing day of soccer as they went undefeated in the Round Robin matches. They won against Camilla Road Sr. Public School with a score of 1-0. They tied Homelands Sr. Public School and two others 0-0. In their final match against Tomken Road Middle School they tied them 0-0 as well only to finish second out of twelve to bring home silver. Their coach played a big role by encouraging them to push themselves past their limits to be the best they could be. With a strong defensive line as well as a strong offensive line the girls had made up an amazing team. Overall the girls had an amazing day at Tomken Middle School.
heart breaking loss at 1-0 after a well fought and equal battle. The boys were also pressuring themselves to retain their title, but couldn’t defend last year’s championship trophy and lost it out in the end. But, congratulations to the boys for being the team to concede the least amount of goals in the tournament, and placing 3rd place! A huge thank-you to our coaches, Ms. K and Ms. Brooks, for their leadership and inspiration.
other and the team with most points in the end won. To warm up, the boys played a hard fought game against Glenhaven where they tied 1-1. After that, they really kicked into high gear to get back to back wins against David Leeder and Homeside! To round it all off, they got another tie against Camilla to cruise into the final game at second place and a chance to win the title! Unfortunately, the boys suffered a
What an amazing run at the soccer tournament for the Allan A. Martin boys! After weeks of practise and determination, the boys knew they were finally ready to give it their all and only had one thing on their minds: getting the ball in the back of the net. This year, the soccer tournament was organized differently. Instead of having elimination, every team had the opportunity to play against each
The 2015 girls softball team was a very dedicated and talented group of athletes. They astonished the staff and students with their effort and collaboration at this year’s tournament. We practiced at lunch many times a week to prepare for our home tournament, and we were all exited and ready to play our absolute best throughout the day. With the help of Mr. Hay the girls extended their knowledge of the game and started feeling passion and hunger for the win. In our first game, the girls came through with a 2-1 win. During the second game the girls won a whopping 9-2 against QE, displaying solid defense and stellar offense. Big shout-outs to the remarkable pitching from Rebecca and great offense from Paige and Kristin. In the third and fourth game our girls pulled through once again with two more great victories. With the Allan A. Martin staff, students and community by the teams side, they were undefeated until the championship game against Queen Elizabeth where we lost 4-0. Although we didn’t claim first the girls still played and had an amazing day, they came together as a team and made Allan A proud. We give a big thanks to Mr.Hay, Athletic Council and all of the other staff and volunteers who helped run the tournament to make it the best it could be.
Dragon boating has been around for centuries and is starting to become a sport known worldwide with over 50 countries involved. It’s a team sport which takes a lot of concentration and skill to do well. It usually consists of ten rows of partners rowing consecutively at the same time. With each stroke the boat becomes one step closer to the finish line. Dragon boating at Allan A Martin is a cooed sport, with Ms. Lavallee encouraging all grades and athletic abilities to come try it out. As a team, we practice in the upstairs hall with lacrosse sticks, practicing to stay in stroke with proper form, also work together as a team. The students are encouraged to train at home, doing push-ups and planks to train their bodies for the regatta held on June 4th, 2015. Before the regatta the students have two in water practices with a qualified trainer of the Mississauga Canoe Club. They encourage the athletes to twist and push their body forward to pull more water behind them. As the regatta comes closer and closer the team becomes more exited to work together as a team and take the trophy home. We give a great big thanks to Ms. Hynes and especially Ms. Lavallee for giving us this amazing opportunity.
