The students got back from Easter Break on Monday. After our morning assembly of prayer, singing and announcements the students were ready to get back to class and work hard.
Today we will be welcoming Joanne Crofford into our building. She will be leading our grade 7 and 8 students through a drumming workshop. This workshop is designed to enhance the already brilliant work Harmony McMillan is doing with the students.
Badminton is in full swing now! We have a set of games today and we worked on our serving and clearing at practice on Monday. In other badminton news, one of our students in grade 6 competed in a badminton tournament this past weekend and placed third! We are so incredibly proud of the effort and sportsmanship this student showed on and off the court!
Track and Field is the next school sport that will take place near the end of April and into May.
We also welcomed Lorna Dueck and Sandy Broad to our school on Tuesday.
"Sandy has put her love of people together with her administrative gifts in a variety of capacities over the years. Most recently (10+ years) she was the Worship & Communications Director at a community church. Sandy facilitates Christian leadership development with Next Level Leadership and has a passion to see Christians move into influential places of leadership in our society."
"Context with Lorna Dueck is a weekly, half-hour, independently-produced television program. Our mission is to create boundary breaking media that reveals Christ. We explore news and current affairs stories from a Christian world view by looking into the stories and issues that matter to you. Journalist and host Lorna Dueck and the Context team deliver media that explores peoples' experience of God in the topical happenings of our day."
There is a buzz in the school in anticipation of Tim Horton’s Camp next week. Our students and staff will be heading to Kananaskis where the students will be guided through team building activities and games, improv and drumming, rock climbing, and many other outdoor events.
This week we also had to say goodbye and good luck to the U of S nursing students that have been with us for the past three months. The nursing students and their advisor put in a lot of time and effort into making sure our students are healthy and happy. They were a vital part of the staff and will be missed!
