Gillam Teacher to Compete at the World Ball Hockey Championships


Gillam Teacher to Compete at the 

World Ball Hockey Championship 

in Pardubice, Czech-Republic

Dawn Tulk, the kindergarten through grade 8 Physical Education teacher at Gillam School will be competing at the World Ball Hockey Championship being held in Pardubice, Czech-Republic from June 1-10th. This will be her 3rd time representing Team Canada. 

Her impressive resume includes being named to World All-Star Teams, two World Ball Hockey gold medals as well as representing Newfoundland at the National Ball Hockey level. 

Dawn is among a select few that have represented our country in international competition and is considered to be one of the best ball hockey players not only in Canada, but in the world. 

The World Ball Hockey Championship occurs every two years. In 2013, Dawn competed in her home province of Newfoundland.  In the gold medal game, she scored the only two markers for Canada, securing the gold medal.

Before heading to Zug, Switzerland in 2015, she was recognized in front of the school and given an autographed Gillam School jersey. Both staff and students signed the jersey and supported her via social media while she was away. 

During World Championships, Dawn experiences elite level competition and has an opportunity to visit amazing attractions that the countries have to offer. 

Dawn has expressed tremendous gratitude for the support she has received from family, friends, Gillam School, her local community and from her teammates throughout the last few years.  

Dawn has been a great ambassador for hockey and has been a role model for youth in Canada. Dawn understands the importance and significance of wearing a Team Canada jersey and being a leader in hockey and physical activity for Canadians. 

Gillam is proud to have Dawn representing our country as a member of our school and community.
