Volunteers will meet virtually once every two weeks until May, then once a week in May leading up to the Artisan Market and help out on the day of the market. If you are interested in volunteering on the Committee, please contact Tonya at or 519-433-9121 ext. 233.

Phys. Ed Roundup

It’s been a long winter full of lots of activity for the students during their Phys. Ed classes. We started off the new year with Zoom fitness classes and this carried over into the class upon returning to school. All students from Lower Elementary to Junior High took part in a variety of fitness challenges and activities to help improve their strength and eye hand coordination. This was followed up with some information about eating and nutrition and how we can keep our bodies healthy.

Of course, we were able to squeeze in a few outdoor days of tobogganing and sledding thanks to Mother Nature. Our next unit was badminton, and we were fortunate to have two new portable badminton nets donated to the school from the Birch family. Both Evie (Year 7) and Bren (Year 4) are avid badminton players outside of school and were excited to help provide these nets for use by the students. 

Last week, the students in Upper Elementary took part in “Mansfield Day.” Mansfield Outdoor Centre is where the students in Upper Elementary go each January for their overnight Winter Trip. There, they have the opportunity to sleep in cabins, cross country ski, snowshoe, hike and have some fun and games inside. In an effort to provide a little bit of fun in this crazy year, each UE class took the morning and pretended to be at Mansfield. They took part in a scavenger hunt, ga ga ball (a favourite during down time), hot chocolate, cookie challenge and everyone’s favourite outdoor animal survival game.

Moving forward towards some nicer weather, please make sure that students are prepared for both indoor and outdoor gym class, wear their uniform and have appropriate footwear for indoor and outdoor classes.

Photos from the week…

Casa 1’s African cultural study

To complement our study of Africa, Casa 1 learned a few traditional games played in Africa. Pictured are two of our students playing Mancala!

UE Literature studies

When our students finish a novel, we encourage them to create a special project that highlights their interests from the book. Our Year 6 students researched wolves after reading Jack London’s, “White Fang,” while a couple of Year 4’s read Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic “The Secret Garden” and created a diorama of the beautiful and mysterious garden.
