Bonjour École Wilfrid Walker!



 



It’s been a while since I wrote you guys an update. How has everyone been since my visit? Has everyone been studying hard? 



Since my visit I’ve been super busy.  I was in Vancouver for a few days, back in Regina, out in the Canora/Kamsack area, back in Regina, then back in Calgary for a bit, out in Montreal, and now I’m just flying back from being in Costa Rica for 9 days with my brother. Costa Rica was a lot of fun!



My brother, Mykola, and I had been planning our trip to Costa Rica for a while now so that we could relax a little after such a busy year. Do you guys know where Costa Rica is? If you want to look for it on a map, or on the internet, we went to Montezuma, Costa Rica – a really small surf town on the Nicoya peninsula.



While in Costa Rica, we did many fun things. The first thing we did was learn how to surf! It was my first time surfing, but I learned fairly quickly and was able to get up on the board quite a few times our first day out. We surfed at 3 different beaches along the Pacific Coast on 3 different days. It was usually nice and sunny, above 30 degrees every day, and there were always really good waves. Surfing was probably the funnest thing I did while in Costa Rica!



Oh, after my first day of surfing, our surf instructor, Alvaro, also showed us how to climb a coconut tree and peel a coconut to drink the water inside of it. He told us that when the locals go surfing for the day, they sometimes don’t bring any water or food with them because they’ll just climb a tree and drink the fresh water from the young coconuts, and eat the coconut if it’s mature enough. The larger coconuts can have up to a litre of water in them!  But, it’s very dangerous to climb a tree like that, so you shouldn’t try it yourselves.



The next thing we did was go zip lining in the forest. We put on all of our safety equipment, learned how to control our speed, and off we went! We went on 9 different zip lines throughout the forest, sometimes up 70 meters off the ground, and got to stop half way through the tour to visit one of the waterfalls in the area. We got to jump off the waterfall into a really deep pool that fed another waterfall close by. It was so cool!



Next, we went kayaking on the ocean and visited Tortuga Island to go scuba diving and snorkelling. That was another really cool day because it was my first time scuba diving. We saw some star fish, schools of really colourful fish, and even a blow fish. We didn’t get to see any sharks; but, it was really cool to be able to swim with the fish like that.



Finally, before we got on the flight home, we visited a coffee plantation. Most of you are too young to be drinking coffee, but some of the best coffee in the world comes from Costa Rica! We got to see the coffee plants, how they plant them, how they grow them, and how they pick and process the beans. I learned quite a bit on that tour and got to taste a few different kinds of coffee.



Now that I’m on my way home, it’s back to the real world. I should find out who my new coach is pretty soon because by next week we will already be starting to train for next year. I hope everyone is studying hard!



Lucas

Mise à jour le vendredi 16 avril 2010 à 9 h 01





















De nombreux avions, comme ceux de la British Airways, sont restés<br /><br />
            cloué au sol.

De nombreux avions, comme ceux de la British Airways, sont restés cloué au sol.





L'éruption d'un volcan islandais continue à perturber l'ensemble du trafic aérien en Europe, ainsi qu'entre le Vieux Continent et l'Amérique.



Le nuage de cendres projetées par le volcan d'Eyjafjallajökull représente un risque important : il limite la visibilité des pilotes et pourrait endommager les réacteurs des avions.



C'est pourquoi la fermeture de l'espace aérien britannique a été prolongée jusqu'à samedi 00 h 00 GMT « au moins », à l'exception de quelques vols en Écosse et en Irlande du Nord, a annoncé vendredi le service britannique du contrôle aérien (NATS).



Auparavant, l'organisme avait annoncé qu'il prolongeait la fermeture jusqu'à 18 h GMT vendredi.



La Direction générale française de l'aviation civile (DGAC) a annoncé que tous les aéroports du nord et de l'est de la France dont Roissy-Charles de Gaulle et Orly, resteraient fermés jusqu'à 18 h GMT.



Cependant, les arrivées seront tout de même autorisées entre 10 h GMT et 14 h GMT sur les aéroports parisiens de Roissy, Orly et du Bourget [aviation d'affaires].



Parmi les 23 aéroports qui resteront fermés, outre les plateformes parisiennes, on dénombre également les aéroports de Lille, Beauvais (nord), et Strasbourg (est).



Au total, plus de 50 % du trafic aérien prévu vendredi en Europe devrait être annulé, selon les estimations de l'Organisation européenne pour la sécurité de la navigation aérienne, Eurocontrol.



Eurocontrol table sur environ 11 000 vols dans l'espace aérien européen vendredi. Au cours d'une journée normale, ce chiffre serait de 28 000 vols.



Au tour du Canada



Concernant le trafic transatlantique, Eurocontrol a indiqué que sur les 300 vols prévus vendredi de l'Amérique vers l'Europe, seulement 100 à 120 vols ont pu être assurés vendredi matin.



Déjà, plusieurs liaisons entre le Canada et l'Europe sont suspendues jusqu'à nouvel ordre.



Enfin, de nombreux vols partant de la Norvège, de la Suède, de l'Écosse, de l'Irlande du Nord, de la Belgique, de la Pologne et même de l'Espagne ont été suspendus.



L'aéroport de Prague et une partie importante de l'espace aérien tchèque ont été fermés vendredi. En conséquence, des dizaines de vols ont été annulés.



Par contre, l'espace aérien irlandais, qui était partiellement fermé depuis jeudi, a été rouvert dans sa quasi-totalité, permettant en particulier la reprise du trafic à l'aéroport de Dublin, le principal aéroport du pays.

















 



Éruption coûteuse



L'annulation de centaines de vols en Europe cause des maux de tête aux voyageurs qui tentent de se rendre à destination.



Pour les transporteurs, la fermeture de l'espace aérien entraînera certainement des coûts importants. De nombreux clients devront être remboursés et les détournements de vols feront grimper la facture en carburant des avions.



Si le problème persiste, les transporteurs devront trouver de nouvelles routes pour effectuer leurs déplacements. Certains experts croient que le volcan pourrait cracher de la cendre pendant encore plusieurs semaines, voire plusieurs mois.



Aucune victime, mais des évacuations



L'éruption du volcan situé sous le sommet du glacier Eyjafjallajökull a forcé l'évacuation de 800 habitants en Islande. L'éruption et les tremblements de terre qui l'accompagnent n'ont fait aucune victime, mais la fonte du glacier a provoqué de fortes inondations qui ont endommagé les routes, dont certaines ont été fermées à la circulation.



Le mois dernier, la première éruption d'Eyjafjallajökull depuis 1823 avait entraîné la brève évacuation de 600 personnes. Ce réveil a placé le volcan voisin de Katla, situé sous le glacier Myrdalsjökull, en observation. Par le passé, les deux volcans sont souvent entrés en éruption en tandem.



L'Islande, qui compte 320 000 habitants, est située sur une zone volcanique au milieu de la faille atlantique.

Le 25 et 26 mars ont été des jours excitant pour nous parce que nous avons eu la chance de finalement rencontrer notre athlète adopté, Lucas Makowsky. C'était fantastique! Les médias nous ont aimé beaucoup et nous avons eu beaucoup d'attention à cause de sa visite. Vous pouvez lire plus au sujet de la visite de Lucas ici: http://wilfridwalker.rbe.sk.ca/makowsky_news





______________________________________________________





By Rob Vanstone, Leader-Post


March 27, 2010

Lucas Makowsky's old school became a gold school on Friday.



Makowsky, a 2001 graduate of Ecole Wilfrid Walker School, shared his 2010 Winter Olympics long-track speedskating gold medal with staff and students during an afternoon assembly.



"When I got in, I walked by the hallway that had my grad picture in there,'' Makowsky said. "Walking by the fountains that are down around knee height, it's a good reminder of where I came from.''



Makowsky also carried around a reminder of his greatest sporting accomplishment -- the medal he won for Canada in men's team pursuit on Feb. 27. He teamed with Denny Morrison of Fort St. John, B.C., and Mathieu Giroux of Pointe-aux-Trembles, Que., to edge the United States in the gold-medal race.



"As much as this was for me,'' Makowsky said during the assembly, "it was for you guys, too.''



Wilfrid Walker, a French immersion elementary school, partnered with Makowsky as part of the Canadian Olympic Foundation's Adopt An Athlete program. The school generated $1,825 to help offset Makowsky's training costs by staging two fundraisers -- a coin drive and a candy-cane sale.



In addition, Makowsky kept in regular touch with students in Joanna Sanders Bobiash's Grade 7 class. He e-mailed letters to the students and also spoke with them in French via Skype. The class honoured him with its Lucas Wall, which includes posters, photos, flags, and newspaper articles.



Until Thursday, Makowsky had not met the students personally. They welcomed him at Regina International Airport when he returned home for the first time since winning the medal. Later that day, he was named male athlete-of-the-year at the Saskatchewan Sport Awards.



Makowsky made the acquaintance of a larger group on Friday. All the students flocked to the Wilfrid Walker gymnasium, where they waved miniature Canadian flags, listened to a Grade 7 band, watched a video presentation and applauded the school's most-decorated alumnus.



"It's really exciting because he was talking to us so much on the Internet,'' Grade 7 student Lexy King said.



"To actually meet him in real life, it's like a dream come true.



"In person, he's all bubbly and really nice. He's just awesome. I'm really happy we got him for an Olympic athlete.''



The excitement is mutual, judging by Makowsky's beaming countenance during his visit to Wilfrid Walker. After addressing the students, he showed them photos he had taken during the Olympics.



The star of the slide show was L'Ourson Makowsky, a stuffed teddy bear that was also part of the Olympic journey.



"One of my good friends in Calgary gave that to me as a gift for making the Olympics,'' said Makowsky, 22, who moved to Calgary to train after graduating from Campbell Collegiate in 2005. "It's just something cute to have.



"I just thought of the idea right before the Olympics to take the bear around and take a couple of pictures and make a slide show for the kids. They've given me so much, so I figured I would take a few pictures with the bear and bring them back for my visit.''







Makowsky also signed 300 autograph cards, to be distributed to the students on Friday, prior to returning to Wilfrid Walker.



"I would have never expected it to go this way, because we started off with the partnership as something small,'' Makowsky marvelled.



"It just really took off from there. They bought into the program. I went into the program with the attitude that I was going to try and inspire some kids with what I do. For it to get to this point, it's absolutely incredible.''



The same description applies to Makowsky's meteoric rise to gold.



Until the 2009-10 season, Makowsky had not reached the podium on the World Cup circuit. That changed on Nov. 21 in Hamar, Norway, when he finished second in the men's 1,500 metres.



Barely a month later, he qualified for the Olympics in the 1,500m and 5,000m while also securing a spot in team pursuit. He was 13th in the 5,000m and 19th in the 1,500m at Richmond Olympic Oval before celebrating the gold medal on the penultimate day of the Olympics.



"Did this last year really happen?'' Makowsky said with a chuckle.



"I look at this and all I can think about is so many athletes, so many people, dream of something this big. To have been able to accomplish that, I consider myself really privileged to have gone through that journey and to continue on. If I can come back and inspire a school like this or kids back in Saskatchewan, that would be the best part of the journey.''



He will continue to inspire youngsters through the Makowsky Award, which will be presented annually to select Wilfrid Walker students, beginning in June. One student in each grade, from 3 to 8, will be chosen by a faculty panel, which is to review criteria such as selflessness, compassion, attainment of personal bests and adherence to shared values.



The Grade 8 recipient will also be awarded $100.



"That's something that I hope the kids will be able to look forward to and aspire to as they get older,'' said Makowsky, a second cousin of Saskatchewan Roughriders offensive lineman Gene Makowsky. "Starting at Grade 3, it's a great age to start looking forward to something that big.''



Makowsky looks forward to continuing his arrangement with Wilfrid Walker, and to some relaxation after a rewarding, but hectic, past few months.



"It has been a bit of a rollercoaster,'' he reflected. "Going into this year, I didn't really know what to expect. I hadn't been on the podium in the World Cups and I hadn't even qualified for an Olympics before. To be on that podium and then to make the Olympics, and then to skate my first Olympics, and then to come back with a gold medal is an incredible year.''

Bonjour 7e année!



J'espère que vous avez passé une bonne longue fin de semaine. Je suis très déçue que je ne puisse pas fair un appel Skype mardi matin avec vous. Avec la pluie et la sécurité autour des édifices olympiques, ce n'est pas possible d'avoir mon ordinateur avec moi quelque part où ça ne va pas devenir  tout mouillé.



J'ai eu la chance lundi de rencontrer Lucas et de lui donner l'affiche que vous l'avez fait. Il m'a dit qu'il l'a vu avant son course de 5000m et qu'il l'a beaucoup aimé. Il dit un grand merci pour être tellement gentil. Il a vraiment hâte de vous rencontrer pendant son visite au mois d'avril.



Vous pouvez voir mes photos à date dans ce album de photo sur Flickr: album olympique de Mme Bobiash



À jeudi!

Wilfrid Walker School students cheering on alumnus at Vancouver Olympic Games



By ROB VANSTONE , Leader-Post   February 9, 2010





REGINA — Lucas Makowsky's presence is still felt at Wilfrid Walker School, from which he graduated in 2001.



The Regina-born speedskater, who is to compete for Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, is honoured in Joanna Sanders Bobiash's Grade 7 classroom. The school is supporting Makowsky as part of the Canadian Olympic Foundation's Adopt An Athlete program.



"It was a lot easier to get the kids to buy in when you can say, 'Let's look at his picture on the wall,' " Sanders Bobiash says. "Even though we've never met him, we feel like we know him.''



Makowsky's photo from the Class of '01 is displayed in the hallway. However, he is most conspicuous inside Studio 1, where the commemorative Lucas Wall can be found.



It actually started out as an Olympic Wall, but the focus shifted to Makowsky as the students became acquainted with him.



The Lucas Wall includes photographs, articles, a poster signed by Makowsky, a postcard he sent from Berlin during the World Cup season, a countdown to the Olympics, and posters and flags with Olympic themes.



"A lot of the kids have really connected with him because he went to school here,'' Sanders Bobiash says. "We have a lot of competitive swimmers here and the fact that he went to the school less than 10 years ago makes (the Olympics) seem a little more attainable.''



In return, the students have helped to make life as an elite athlete more affordable for Makowsky. Nearly $2,000 was raised by the school to help Makowsky defray expenses incurred while competing or training. The school held a coin drive in October and a candy-cane sale in December to benefit its adopted Olympian and proud alumnus.



"It has been a pretty cool experience so far,'' says Makowsky, 22, who trains with the national team at the Olympic Oval in Calgary. "It's cool to be able to say you went to that school when you were younger. I know the kids are really excited with the Olympics coming up.''



Makowsky has fostered the excitement by being accessible to the students.



"Lucas has been great,'' Sanders Bobiash says. "He e-mails us letters twice a month and he made a Skype call to our class. That was a really big hit. He has been very generous with his time.''



The relationship was initiated by Adopt An Athlete, which contacted the school. Makowsky requested Wilfrid Walker because of his direct connection.



Mind you, there have been some notable changes since Makowsky last frequented the classrooms of Wilfrid Walker. For starters, there has been a complete turnover in faculty since 2001. As well, it has become a French immersion school, and is also known as Ecole Wilfrid Walker.



In that respect, Wilfrid Walker is also attuned to Makowsky, who was trilingual — speaking English, French and Ukrainian — by the time he entered Grade 1. During the Skype call, he spoke to the students in French.



The contact will be more direct later this year. Makowsky plans to pay two visits to Wilfrid Walker when he returns to Regina following the speedskating season.



Even before then, Sanders Bobiash will be able to see him in person. Her Olympic excursion — which was in the works before Makowsky became an adopted athlete — includes a stop at the Richmond Olympic Oval for the men's 5,000 metres on Feb. 13.



At the speedskating venue, she will hold up a poster the 18 Grade 7 students have made for Makowsky, who has also qualified in the 1,500m and team pursuit.



"It just so happened that I was able to get tickets for the 5,000 metres,'' says Sanders Bobiash, who also has tickets for curling, women's hockey and figure skating. "It was total luck.



"The first race that he qualified in at the Olympic trials was the 5,000 metres. That was very exciting for all of us.''

Bonjour École Wilfrid Walker,



Looking at the time right now you will get this update after you’re back to school on Monday, so hopefully everyone had a good weekend!



Right now I am getting ready for a pretty big competition here in Calgary that starts tomorrow – the Continental Championships. It’s a competition between the countries from North America and Oceania to qualify spots for the World All-round Championships (but there are only skaters from Canada, the US, and 1 skater from New Zealand). This weekend I will race the 500m, the 1500m, the 5000m and the 10 000m, so it will make for a long weekend!



Aside from Continentals, there have already been a few countries that have arrived in Calgary to start getting ready for the Olympics! So far, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Japan are here and we’re starting to see everyone’s Olympic suits they’ll be wearing for the Games - it’s getting really exciting. I think next week is when the rest of the countries will be coming to Calgary before everyone heads out to Vancouver for the Games.



Has anybody seen the Canadian suits yet? We just got ours this week when the Olympic Torch came to Calgary. It came into the Oval for a few laps on the ice, and our entire Olympic Speed Skating Team was there to accompany the Torch. There were so many people who came to the oval to be part of the celebration I couldn’t believe it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people in the Oval before, especially not during a competition! I attached a picture I took with Susan Auch and the Torch (she skated the Torch around the Oval with the team, and is a 3-time Olympic Medalist herself!!). What do you think of our new suits?!



After that morning when the Torch came to the Oval, the excitement and reality of the Olympic Games started to sink in for me. I couldn’t help but feel proud to be Canadian when we skated around the Oval with the Torch while everyone in the stands was cheering us on. It’ll be an honour to wear the Maple Leaf at the Olympic Games because I know the whole country will be behind us. The experience itself is something I look forward to, and hopefully I’ll be able to put those experiences into words to share with you when I’m back!



For now though, I have to start getting ready for the weekend. Tomorrow I’ll be racing the 500m and 5000m, then on Sunday the 1500m and 10 000m. I think I’ll be eating a lot of pasta this weekend!



Lucas
