This event was organized and run all by the grd. 10 students as part of their school work in social studies 10. Special thanks to Empowering Minds and Chek's Sports who donated a class set of equipment to the school as part of the visit.

Grd 5/6 field trip to Telus Spark, May 12

This week the grade 5/ 6 students had a chance to explore the new science center. Everyone had a chance to experience the documentary movie "The Forces of Nature" in the new 3 story dome theatre. Students spent time creating a visual journal entry connecting the ideas to their work on weather. The group then had an opportunity to choose from a variety of activities which included doing some wood working, creating a fashion design and placing it on a manican, making a track out of pipe and running a ball bearing through it, and making a water dam. The students found the day very engaging and many described it as "fantastic". Thank you to the teachers, volunteers and parents who made it possible.
