The Senior Boys Basketball team will be heading to Provincials at St. Mary’s (Dunne Memorial Academy) next week after capturing the Regional Banner with a win over St. Mark’s. The Crusaders defeated the Lions to capture the SSNL Avalon West ‘A’ Boys Basketball Regional title. We would like to thank Mr. Glen O’Driscoll and the boys from St. Mark’s for coming up and competing! The boys have had a pretty good season thus far as they have previously captured the tier III banner at the Cougar Classic in Clarenville early this winter. We look forward to seeing them represent us at the Provincials next week. Go Crusaders!!!
We would like to thank everyone in our school community who came out for our annual tree lighting last night. It was another great event overseen by Ms. Smith and her Student Council! We can’t say enough good things about our student volunteers at RIA…they are second to none!!!
We would also like to thank everyone who made donations to the wish tree or supported us at the annual Christmas movie night. We were able to raise $209 which will definitely help those in need this Christmas! We really appreciate all the support we get from our school community and we hope last nights event gets the Christmas season started right for everyone and that it brought some well deserved Christmas cheer!!!

It was a great Regional Softball qualifier for the Boys yesterday in Clarenville. The boys went 1-1 in round robin play defeating St. Marks School and losing a close game to Tricentia Academy. The crusaders earned a spot in the finals under the lights but unfortunately it was not meant to be for them as Tricentia played a great game and RIA came up short. We would like to acknowledge all of the support as It was great to see so many of our school community members there to cheer on our boys. We would like to congratulate Curtis Vardy on winning the sportsmanship medal and all the boys on your silver medals. We would especially like to thank Kristina Hansford for all your efforts with the boys as this experience would not have been possible without your dedication! Congratulations to the Timberwolves…we wish you best of luck at Provincials!
