Burnaby Village Museum

The class went on a field trip to Burnaby Village Museum and participated in the Winter Wonder school program. Students rode the vintage carousel, visited a blacksmith, toured historic buildings and spent time in a silent movie theatre. A special thanks to the parents who drove and helped with supervision. Have a relaxing and safe Winter Break.

Public Speaking

Congratulations to all the students in Division 13 who presented their speeches in class. It’s clear that students spent a lot of time researching, writing, memorizing and practicing their speeches at home. It takes courage to get up in front of a group of students and deliver a speech. Public speaking is a skill that will serve you well in life.

Four students were chosen to share their speeches during the Public Speaking Festival in the gym. This involved standing on the stage, using the microphone and speaking in front of a larger audience which included judges, teachers, parents and students. Well done.

Indoor Rock Climbing

Our class went indoor rock climbing this week. For some students it was their first experience and for others they had tried the activity before. Students wore a seat harness and were belayed as they climbed. This is an activity where students learned about their own limitations. We had a two hour session and many of the students climbed right to the top of a number of different routes. The indoor climbing gym also runs camps for students during the Spring and Summer breaks.

Giant Panda vs. Snowman

At the Toronto zoo the zookeepers made a snowman for the giant panda named Da Mao. He seems to be having fun disassembling their creation. What do you think about Da Mao playing with the snowman? Please feel free to leave a comment.
