The office of the Premier of Ontario has recognized eleven York Catholic students for their creative vision and innovative design skills. Artists from secondary schools across the YCDSB answered a recent provincial call to action for a student-designed logo to represent the newly incorporated Ontario Schools Cricket Association (OSCA).
Formed in 2020, the Ontario Schools Cricket Association (OSCA) is a federally incorporated not for profit organization working with schools across the province to promote a life-long love of physical activity among young people through inclusive cricket programs.
“OSCA would like to congratulate the remarkable students of the York Catholic District School Board, and thank all staff who encouraged and facilitated their submissions,” said OSCA President, Ken Jeffers. “These students truly captured the spirit of our mission to ‘Energize, Excite, Empower’. Heartfelt best wishes go out the YCDSB as a whole for joining in this celebration of creativity, physical activity, and diverse sports.”
