HCDSB Marks Rowan’s Law Day

On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, the Halton Catholic District School Board will be marking Rowan’s Law Day to raise awareness about concussions.

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head, face, neck, or body that can cause a sudden jarring of the head. Even what seems to be a mild bump to the head can be serious.

Research indicates that a concussion can affect a student’s school performance in both cognitive activities (school work) and physical activities (physical education program/interschool activities). Research also indicates that engaging in cognitive and/or physical activities, while a child has a suspected and/or diagnosed concussion, can worsen concussion symptoms and delay the student’s recovery.

What is Rowan’s Law Day?

In May 2013, 17-year-old Rowan Stringer died as the result of head injuries sustained in a game of rugby. In March 2018, the Ontario government passed Rowan’s Law, designed to protect athletes and to educate about the dangers of head injuries.

The health and safety of our students is our priority, and on September 25th, we hope to increase awareness about the dangers of concussions. Together, we can help our students prevent, recognize and respond to concussions.

For more information on our concussion protocol, visit our Board’s website.

Lorem Ipsum

The glory, by and large, will go to Kawhi Leonard, and rightfully so. What he did throughout a remarkable playoff run, in helping the Toronto Raptors hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy as NBA champions for the first time, is the stuff of lore.

Rarely do the type of bets Masai Ujiri made in acquiring him pay off in this way. If this is it, well, everyone definitely maxed out.

Still, let’s make sure to acknowledge that none of this happens, none of this is possible without Kyle Lowry.

At a time when there was no blueprint for a franchise badly cracked by the bitter parting with Vince Carter and subsequent flight of Chris Bosh, the brooding point guard with the malcontent rep drew up the plans, found a crew and against-the-odds and set a foundation. He poured his heart-and-soul into the Raptors, even if at times the commitment wasn’t necessarily fully reciprocal, joining DeMar DeRozan in seeing where things were headed and refusing to go out like that.

In realizing his best self here, he willed an organization continually undercut by factors both in and out of its control, to elite status with him.

A truly just ending would have been for that buzzer-beater at the end of Game 5 to have soared past Draymond Green’s outstretched fingers and right through the mesh to trigger bedlam at Scotiabank Arena. But he’s getting a ring after helping oust the Golden State Warriors with 26 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds in a white-knuckle 114-110 Game 6 win. And as much as that’s thanks to Leonard, it will always be thanks to Lowry, too, which makes his place in the Toronto athlete pantheon so interesting.

There’s no signature moment like Joe Carter’s World-Series clinching homer, Roberto Alomar’s demon-killing drive off Dennis Eckersley, or Jose Bautista’s bat flip, although scoring 11 points in the first 2.5 minutes of the title clincher is now atop his resume. As a facilitator, Lowry underpinned the success of others the way Doug Gilmour did with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the diminutive centre will always have the enduring wizardry of that wraparound overtime winner against the St. Louis Blues. Unlike Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter and Chris Bosh, he stayed. Like Wendel Clark, Lowry provided his team with a heartbeat. And like Mats Sundin, he’s been seen for what he isn’t nearly as often as appreciated for what he is.

What’s Happening Title

The Toronto Raptors had just hoisted the Larry O’Brien trophy for the first time in history as the architect of the 2019 NBA champions, team president Masai Ujiri, soaked it all in from his spot stage left of the makeshift platform at centre court of Oracle Arena.

For Ujiri, the moment was the culmination of a six-year roller-coaster ride in which his messaging remained consistent — even if the results were anything but — and a moment of pure validation if there ever was one.

Since taking the Raptors’ general manager gig back in 2013, he hadn’t been shy about his goals in Toronto and what he’s been building toward: A title — and not simply making the Finals, but winning it all.

“We’ve been growing, and trying to prove to the world that there’s a meaning to having one NBA team outside the U.S.,” an emotional Ujiri told Doris Burke. “We wanted to win in Toronto, and we’ve won in Toronto.”

So… now what?

Roughly around the same time Ujiri made his victory speech to a global hoops audience, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported “sources” indicated the Washington Wizards were in hot pursuit of the newly crowned champion executive.
