Students chose to wear an orange shirt today to promote awareness about the residential school system and the impact this system had on Indigenous communities in Canada. It was wonderful to see how many students at Sunnybrook chose to wear the colour and show their voice through solidarity.

The First Day of School 2019
Shoes polished, hair freshly trimmed, uniforms looking crisp and fresh - the year began with happy students coming back to enjoy another year at SBS. Our new kindergarten students were thrilled with the good weather, the playground, and the whole experience of starting school. The rest of us just enjoyed being back. It was a splendid day, all around!
Madagascar was a hit, and played to a sold out audience both nights. From GR 1 to GR 6 all our students performed with enthusiasm, using their talent and hard work to create a magical theatre experience for their families.
Our thanks to all the volunteers who helped make the show a success for our students.

GrandPals Day is a special day for Grandparents, aunts, uncles, trusted friends to come to Sunnybrook to relive their school days. Together they visited different stations in the school, to explore different aspects of the students' learning. Activities in the home Studios as well as in Music, Library, French and Phys Ed. made it a full experienece for everyone. There was lots of music making, egg colouring, floor hockey and French games happening. It was a wonderful afternoon.
