Happy Mother’s Day

By now all the moms will have received their hand made gifts, so it’s safe for me to post this picture of the students hard at work on their fancy hangers.
I hope your day together is wonderful!


When I Grow Up

As part of education week, we talked about some of the things students could be when they grew up and chatted on Skype with a nurse. Some of the students chose to dress up as the person they wanted to be “when they are big”.
A lot of the students were willing to share their future goals in the photos below.





Orange Day

In recognition of the wrongs of the residential schools, our school participated in Orange Shirt Day. The colour orange was chosen because of one child’s experiences. All of the students wore an orange ribbon and got to watch a tipi raising and some First Nations drummers and dancers.






Terry Fox Run

Terry Fox is a Canadian hero. Even though he had lost one of his legs to cancer, he tried to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. Sadly, he lost his battle with cancer before he could complete his run. Every year, Canadians run for Terry. Below are some of the students at the run. The photo was taken by Kristina Seiriene.


Andy the Musical Scientist

A special visitor was at our school this week. Andy combines his love of music with his love of science to create unusual musical instruments out of items such as a skateboard, a ruler or a hockey stick. The students were enthralled! Below you can see some of his performance. To see more of what he does, you can watch his YouTube video.
