“We have already finished a variety of our projects," said Mrs. Gillis, the teacher-advisor for the Classics Club, “And we are doing another all-boy fashion show." At last year’s OSCC, Barrie Central was the first school to do an all-boy fashion show, but lost by half a point to Elmwood School (ES). When talk about this year’s fashion show came up Mrs. Gillis said it will be difficult against ES but as long as the club does an amazing job on the outfits, down to the last piece of jewellery, she is hopeful that Central can bring home the fashion show trophy this year.
The Classics Club’s focus, every year, is the arts. Jack Gillis spoke about how the team will fare in the athletic events. “I think that this year our team will do well in athletics," said Jack. “Overall we have a stronger team and we have ex-Trojans and current Trojans coming to the team." Last year Jack won second place in both the 50-metre and 100-metre freestyle swimming and hopes to obtain both of those medals again this year. With the new members of the club, the team is hoping to also place in ultimate frisbee.
With all of the work that the team has put into their OSCC projects so far, it seems to be a sure thing that they will make our school proud and bring home some medals, and some memorable stories. Good luck to this years Classics Club.
