Beauty and the Beast | Auditions

Posted on February 13

The Annual SBS Musical is such an integral part of the school year and for our students it begins with auditions. Auditions for the show take place in February each year. Most of our students in GR 4, 5 and 6 came out to try for a role in Beauty and the Beast. After several callbacks and much deliberation parts were awarded based on both acting and singing performances in the auditions. We are proud of all our students for coming out and giving it their best.

Our cast is chosen, and we had a wonderful assembly, celebrating everyone and their roles at a special assembly last week. Congratulations to all our cast, and the supporting actors in their Houses!

Ski Day 2018

Posted on January 30

Ski Day was a hit again this year. The buses left at 7:00 am filled with excited young skiers, parents and teachers. All our students had 2 hour lessons in the morning and time to ski together after lunch. Some of our Grade 6 students had the fun idea to use the day to learn snowboarding! It was a milder (for this winter), sunny day and a success all around. Just in time for dismissal the buses returned with a load of happy, tired students and their chaperones.
Everyone was happy with the move to Skyloft this year, and we thank them for their excellent care and service throughout the day.

 

Special thanks to the teachers and parents who work so hard to make ski day so special for our students every year!

JK Five Senses Festival

Posted on January 25

At the end of the Unit of Inquiry exploring the Five Senses the JK class holds a Festival, to share their learning with their parents. Our JK students move from station to station with their parents to share their knowledge and explore the five senses with their family. Smelling, seeing, touching, hearing and tasting are explored thorought the unit. The best part is the big 5 Senses Festival day when families participate with their children.

Each student makes a Five Senses hat to wear on the day of the festival; the hat demonstrates the five ways that we perceive our world.

GR 2 Ballet School Field Trip

Posted on January 25

GR 2 is studying NGO's for their Make a Difference Unit. They had the wonderful opportunity to attend a class at the National Ballet School, together with a group of people with Parkinson's Disease. Together they explored movement and learned about how music and dance are beneficial for these patients, and the many wonderful benefits they have for all of us.

The cross-generational activity was very valuable and meaningful for the adults in the group as well as for our students. The Ballet School runs this program as community outreach and our class was fortunate to be a part of it and give back to the community.

Care & Share

Posted on December 23

Our December community action is a contribution to the Red Cross Care & Share food drive. Families contribute, students sort and package the donations and make Christmas cards for the residents of Meighan Lodge. This year our Grade Two class took over 60 boxes of food to the Red Cross and helped sort the donations.

 

JK Winter Showcase

Posted on December 22

Our JK class proudly presented their learning in French and Music to their parents yesterday. Singing and performing was followed by story time with the principal, and a fun activity with their parents.

The best part was sitting with parents and siblings, to decorate Gingerbread Houses. What a lovely treat!

This new format for our first JK concert of the year is less formal, and allows our youngest students to perform for their parents in a more familiar setting. We were so proud of them as they enthusiastically sang, recited, and shared with their families.

SK presents Seasons

Posted on December 22

Do you know what beavers do in winter? How do turtles survive the cold? Our SK students study these questions as part of their unit of inquiry, The Reason for Seasons, and this week they presented their findings to their parents. With small diaramas in boxes, drawings of animals, and fact sheets, they talked about what happens in each season, with the animal they were studying. Parents had a great time. Well done, SK, we learned so much from you!
