Girls Basketball Team Takes Trip to Legislative Assembly


The Ridley College Senior Girls’ Basketball Team paid a visit to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario (Queen’s Park) yesterday on their way to a CISAA League game. The second largest provincial legislature in Canada, the girls and coaches learned, among other facts, the Legislative Assembly is known as the ‘Ontario Provincial Parliament’ because unlike the other Canadian provinces, members of this assembly refer to themselves as ‘Members of the Provincial Parliament’ (MPPs) as opposed to ‘Members of the Legistlative Assembly’ (MLAs) as in the other provinces. A terrific CROSS-CURRICULAR learning afternoon for the Team combining – Athletics, History and Politics!! Oh ya and on the court – the senior girls took De La Salle 48-12! First year Leonie V. scored a season high of 12 points in the game. Next game for the girls is this Saturday – Homecoming at 1 pm in the Griffith Gym.
