On Monday, February 6, the full school community went to Sir Sam’s to celebrate Ted Pope Day!
At LCS, we believe in the importance of embracing the great outdoors and fostering a strong sense of community. That's why every year, we embark on a thrilling adventure to the slopes for a day of skiing and snowboarding. Ted Pope Day is a time-honoured tradition that brings together students, faculty, and staff, in a celebration of winter sports and the beauty of nature.
The entire school hit the slopes to ski and snowboard on a beautiful winter day. We embraced the cold weather and practiced being present with one another while enjoying the exhilarating feeling of zipping down the snow-covered slopes.
Ted Pope Day is named after an Old Boy who attended the Grove from 1939 to 1942. Ted Pope loved the thrill of adventure, and he found it skiing, mountain climbing and car racing. He was responsible for redefining the scope of downhill skiing, expanding into new areas with the addition of lifts, jumps, and inter-scholastic competition. Ted Pope joined the Navy after graduating from LCS, and he later worked eight years for the CBC as a television producer. He died in 1960 when his TR3 race car spun out of control.
