Our annual Fun Fair was blessed with a perfect day. We had a great turnout, lots of wonderful activities (games, bouncy castle and slide, face painting, great food, jars and more). Our thanks to our wonderful parent group for creating such a fabulous day of community fun for SBS, our students and families.
Fun Fair 2018
Poem in Your Pocket Day
April is Poetry Month, and at SBS we celebrate with a special 'Poem in Your Pocket Day'. Poems were shared in assembly, beginning with our kindergarten classes performing a poem they had written in class.
Students in each grade read out favourite poems, and every student and teacher in the school carries a poem to share throughout the day. The GR 3 class explores poetry in their 'Express Yourself' unit it April, and ends the unit with a 'Poetry Slam' performance for their parents.
Poetry comes alive at SBS every April!
The SBS EcoTeam includes everyone in the school community. In preparation for Earth Day students gathered in their lunch hour to create inspirational posters to raise awareness of the many things we can do to minimize our impact on our world, and celebrate this wonderful planet that is our home.
The Earth Day Challenge this year was to 'get outside and play', and in honour of Earth Day, SBS scheduled an additional recess for all students. Other EcoAction team activities included spring planting, a lunch 'n learn, collected batteries, and a collection of used markers for recycling.
GR 1 - 3 TSO
Our Grade 1, 2 and 3 classes took a trip to Roy Thomson Hall for a special symphony concert by the TSO yesterday. They came back excited to make music and share their experiences.
2018 SBS Geography Challenge
Each year SBS invites schools to participate in our Geography Challenge. We welcomed the York School and Royal St Georges College to our school this year for a lively test of geographic knowledge. Congratulations to Coby, Grade Five Geography Champion, 2918!
We congratulate BAYVIEW GLEN on their success in winning the challenge this year.
A highlight of the learning in JK and SK each year is doing carpentry work to make a toy. Together with the SK class and several parents, JK hammered and worked away until they had created their very own toy! They were so proud to take their toys home. Our thanks to YouCanDoIt for coming in to show our youngest students how to work with real tools!
Theatre at school
The Little Red Theatre brought their charming production of Peter Rabbit to SBS. JK, SK and GR 1 enjoyed a delightful morning of story and song as Peter Rabbit and his pals discovered Mr McGregor and his garden!
ColourCycle It Challenge
Our most recent SBS Eco Action Team challeng at SBS was to bring used markers to school, to be recycled into fuel. Markers kept coming in throughout the month of March and SBS collected 8 poounds of markers to send to Crayola ColourCycle It to keep the markers out of the dump. Great work all around bringing in used markers. Go Eco Action Team!
