Le Fevre Lightning ‘Karndo’ Ice Hockey Team

Full Year

The Ice Factor program is about creating an opportunity for students to be involved in a team sport and to learn ice hockey skills as well as life skills. In being a part of a team, students learn to communicate, respect themselves and each other and learn to work as a team.

To date, the students have been involved with selecting a jersey design, creating a logo and selecting a team name. The students came up with the name ‘Le Fevre Lightning – Karndo’. To be able to use the Kaurna word for lightning – Karndo -we requested and received permission from the Kaurna Warra Pintyandi (KYP) group. The majority of students involved with the program agreed it was an important acknowledgement of the Kaurna people.

Le Fevre is the tenth school to be involved with the program. Currently the team is a combination of Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 students. Once a week the students participate in skill work and practice on the ice and team meetings. At the end of the term all ten schools compete in a tournament at the Ice Arena.
