Our Junior School production of Peter Pan was a tremendous success! I want to once again thank all the students for their hard work and a huge thank you goes to Ms. Barry and Mr. Leblanc who worked tirelessly with the students on this endeavour. Please stay tuned for details regarding digital copies of the play. In the meantime, Ms. Burt has copies of last year's production, Horton Hears a Who, available in her office for purchase ($10 per thumb drive).
The Grade Six class recently spent time in the Science Lab where they got to use the microscopes to examine amoeba, euglena and paramecium. The class loved being up in the Senior School Science Lab and the were very excited to get an up-close look at these microorganisms.
Congratulations to our two Lego Robotics teams who recently competed in the 2019 Metro Qualifying Robotics Tournament. Everyone worked so hard on this year's challenge and it definitely showed! Both teams should be very proud of the work they have done on the City Shaper challenge. One of our teams, the Architects, has been invited to the Provincial Championships at Acadia University in February!
A big thank you to the Witter family for donating our Holiday Tree this year! It is absolutely gorgeous and the children were so excited to see it arrive on Wednesday.
We recently had a wonderful author visit from Elizabeth Peirce who came to visit with the Grade One and Two classes. She is the author of The Big Flush, a story she wrote for her son who was scared of flushing loud public toilets!
Every week all the Junior School students have the opportunity to read with their book buddies. It is a special time where the younger students get to read to their older buddies. The older students take their job very seriously and the bond the students form throughout the year is a joy to behold.
The Grade Two class had a blast this week in computer class using the iPads to program their little robots. They can make Ozo follow different lines, speed up and spin like a tornado!
Wednesday was World Kindness Day. The Grade 2 class celebrated by talking about adjectives. First, the students came up with kind adjectives to describe Ms. Edwards. Then, they took turns writing kind words to describe each other. Now they are working on using these words to make acrostic poems. Stay tuned...the name poems will be on display soon!
