Dear <<First Name>>,

Girls Phys. Ed

Our Physical Education program is more than just playing games in the gym - although that is lots of fun too! This week the girls in our School for Girls truly explore the diversity in their Physical Education class by experiencing Muay Thai, kickboxing and swimming all in the same week!

Last week we had our November Townhall which culminated in our annual Ornament Ceremony. Thank you to all the new families for sending an ornament so the new boys could participate in this important tradition. It was also nice to see our new staff add a meaningful ornament to the tree.

This week marked the transition to the second round of electives for our K - 9 students. Our youngest boys continue their rotation through coding, music and outdoor adventure. While our 5/6 - 9 boys have chosen PEP, Basketball, Art or Outdoor Ed. It is nice to see the boys get excited about new electives as we endeavour to expose them to as many different experiences as possible.

Yesterday our 3/4 and 4/5 mentor groups went sledding and tomorrow they will be working on team building with a trip to Laser Tag.

We are excited to see donations coming in for our various fundraising commitments and look forward to starting our altruistic activities next week.

Next Friday we are excited to spend time with students from both campuses as we prepare for outdoor fun at Bowness Park.

As we inch closer to the break, we remind our families that lockers need to be cleaned out and personal belongings need to be taken home.

What a great time of year! We thank you all for the support with our numerous activities leading us all to a well-deserved break!

IMPORTANT: Please use this form by DEC. 16 to let us know if your child is attending the bowling event and their shoe sizes so we can be properly prepared.

Mosquito Creek

The grade 7-12 Outdoor Ed students had the opportunity to go to Mosquito Creek last week. The High School students were excellent role models for the Junior high boys. The students were Relentless and Resilient as they pushed themselves physically through a difficult snowshoe adventure to Bow Falls. Back at the hostel, the students took advantage of all the snow by building a Quinzhee shelter, snow-skate jumps, and later cozying up by the fire to enjoy each other's company.


Miss. Glowa’s class, Miss. Brunner’s class and the 4-5 girls from the School for Girls ventured out to Drumheller on the bitterly cold Thursday last week. The excitement of the Royal Tyrrell Museum kept them warm. The students were able to take in a fossil casting workshop as well as explore the museum, participate in a fossil dig, and complete a scavenger hunt . One student was heard to exclaim that that day was a 9/10!

Gr. 8s at Central Library

The Gr. 8 classes ventured down to the Central Library to experience the beautiful architecture on display both outside and inside in addition to the experience of signing out a book to read. While they were there, they explored the many areas to read, study and collaborate on projects. The Central Library is definitely more than a building with books!

Gr. 8s at Vertigo Theatre

Thanks to the generous donation of a parent, the Gr. 8s at our School for Boys were treated to experience a live performance of “Murder on the Orient Express” at Vertigo Theatre.
