Orange Shirt Day - September 29, 2023
Today we wore orange as we continued a week discussing the effects of residential schools and their legacy. We honour the experiences of Indigenous peoples, we celebrate their resilience and we affirm a commitment that Every Child Matters.
Every Child Matters - September 13, 2023
Students have been adding their handprints to our Every Child Matters bulletin board display. Today, even Ben, the service dog, got in on the action! The National Day of Truth & Reconciliation falls on a Saturday this year, so we'll be wearing our Orange shirts on Friday, September 29th.
Gone fishing - June 8, 2023
This week Mr. Schamehorn’s Hunter Education and Hiking & Biking classes combined for an afternoon of fishing and exploring out at Wilderness Park. While no gigantic monsters were hauled in, we had some fish on the line and plenty of help from some great parent volunteers with hooks, snacks and gear. We'll be back for sure!
Camp YoWoChAs - May 30 to June 1, 2023
Our grade 8s were up bright and early this morning to set off on their much-anticipated trip to Camp YoWoChAs on Lake Wabamun. They'll be participating in programs focused on outdoor education, team building, experiential education, leadership development, environmental education, and outdoor recreation. More pictures to come!
Outdoor Recess Fun - March 16, 2023
What a beautiful day to spend recess outdoors!
Winter Walk Day - February 3
There's nothing like a brisk walk on a cool winter day to boost your energy and put a bit of colour in your cheeks. Today's Winter Walk Day took the grade 7s and 8s to the pedestrian bridge while the grade 5s chose to walk north in the residential area and the 6s burned off some energy at the Rotary Park Playground. We still have several more weeks of winter so let's embrace it and enjoy our time outdoors.
