Welcome to the All Boys Program
Boys achieving their personal best.

Weekly Update | Apr. 16, 2017

Happy Easter Sunday to our All Boys Program community,

 

I would like to take a moment and thank our Parent Council once again for supporting the opportunities the boys have at the All Boys Program. The residency last week that we had with lacrosse was outstanding and the boys had a great week as a result. The number of lacrosse sticks that made their way to school and were out on the playground was amazing. We will certainly continue to welcome those boys who want to continue to bring their sticks and play catch and develop their skills with each other during recess time.

 

We had a great turn out this week of boys who wore their jersey to support their favourite team and sport as many boys wore jerseys of various sports and teams. It is a great way for the boys to demonstrate a connection important to them.

 

In understanding the power to impact the world around us our grade 1 boys made a huge step towards that earlier this year. They sent out letters to the men and women on the HMCS MONCTON. They sent questions, pictures and words of appreciation. This past week the boys were treated to the impact of their words and drawings. It is a powerful message to have the boys write to an audience and reinforce one of the central purposes of communication which is sharing ideas, ask questions, contribute knowledge and broaden one’s perspective. The boy’s received letters in return from the men and women on the HMCS MONCTON! They spent some time going through the letters – what a great moment for the boys and they should be congratulated for taking risk in their learning by sending their letters out into the world. Below is a letter back from the commanding officer:
