Welcome and Tryout Camp 2011
On May 6-8 Okanagan Hockey Academy Europe hosted the Welcome and Tryout Camp 2011 for prospective students and their parents on the campus of Sportwelt Niederösterreich and Lower Austrian International School.
This year's camp was attended by 39 players from ten different countries including Russia, Latvia, Denmark, Serbia, Hungary, Scotland, Switzerland, Germany, Spain and Austria, who got the chance to exhibit their talent.
Apart from academic testing and hockey practice, students and parents were introduced to the philosophy of LAIS and its unique school system, comprising the IB Diploma Programme as well as the Austrian Matura.
During meetings with parents and players, Headmistress Dir. Mag. Gabriele Schletz and IB Coordinator Mag. Michael Hofbauer clarified questions and gave an outlook on the future in LAIS. Apart from these very productive formal meetings, the informal BBQ on Friday evening gave parents a chance to communicate with the LAIS teaching staff, the Headmistress and the IB Coordinator.
