Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to announce that Rosary School in Manning will host the 11th Annual HFCRD Cultural Hand Games Tournament on Friday April 28th.  The tournament will include 17 elementary and junior high teams from schools across the division.  Each year, students from across the division form teams and compete in this day-long tournament hosted by an HFCRD school.  This year, we are very fortunate to have the Driftpile drummers at the event, and Devin Belrose as the emcee.

“Our school is very pleased to host this year’s Hand Games Tournament and invite our community to see this traditional First Nations game,” said Rosary School Principal Pat Stokes.  “This event is a wonderful celebration that gives students the opportunity to learn more about First Nations culture.  Students and staff are very excited to participate!”

The public is invited from 10:00am to 1:30pm to watch the teams in action in the school gymnasium.  The public event schedule is as follows:

  • 10:00am Grand Entry
  • 10:30am Tournament Begins
  • 12:00pm Lunch Break
  • 12:30pm Playoffs
  • 1:00pm Awards and Presentations
