To release the build up of stress created by our yearend schedule ramping up at RJC , we decided to take the afternoon off to blow off some steam! Putting the worries of preparing for a major musical production, final exams and graduation aside, we spent the afternoon in glorious summer weather laughing and getting wet! The SRC planned four water events for the student body to participate in. Each team took their turn at water balloon volleyball, slip and slide kickball, water pong and lazer tag. The day culminated in an all school water fight ....and of course an ice cream treat!
The student body particpated in the 2017 Record Breaking Spectacular Fundraising event. Each student sought out sponsors for the events to raise money for future projects and programing at RJC. They then were divided into 9 teams that competed at 10 different events to try to set or break an existing record time or distance. Prizes will be award in several different categories, including best costume, best team name, most money raised, most sponsors collected and of course most records held or broken!
Team name and costumes included: Soul Sisters, Hobby Company, Stick Men, SS Unsinkable, BK 2017, M&M's, Whale Watchers, Circle of Life and the Sodee Pops.
The Rosthern Longhorns are well represented at the 2017 Football Saskatchewan Senior Bowl. This prestigious games features the best Grade 12 football players from across the province.

Team North jumped to an early lead and took control of the game and continued to lead the way rest of the game. The third quarter had Team South rally a bit of a come back but Team North made the required adjustments pulled farther ahead in the fourth quarter. Team North won a decisive victory with a score of 69-40. In recognition of his toughness, skill and leadership, Brock Z. (#21) was selected as MVP. Well done boys! Way to represent our team guys! Hook 'em horns!
