Each September SBs celebrates Founders Day, right after our Terry Fox run. A special assembly with a short presentation of our School's history and a BBQ lunch on the playground make for a great way to honour our unique past and exciting future.

This year we celebrated our 65 years of living and learning at Sunnybrook. It was a great day, our students and faculty had lots of fun, parents joined us for lunch and we had a great time.

Today Councillor Josh Matlow visited the class to share his knowledge, and tell us about plans for new parks as well as park improvements in our neighbourhood. It was a great experience for the kids. Our thanks to Josh for making the time in his busy schedule to visit our school and enriching the learning for our students.

GR 6 Author Visit

Posted on March 31

Our Parent Association sponsors author visits for our students. This week Deborah Ellis, Author of The Breadwinner series visited our GR 6 class. They have been studying Parvanna's Journey and were fascinated to hear Doborah Ellis speak about her experiences with Afghani children. It is a sobering while also inspiring to hear her speak about her experiences in Bolivia, the Middle East and Afghanistan. Our students had some very probing questions for her as they tried to understand their role in a changing world.

Our thanks to the SPA for mking this event possible, and to Deborah Ellis for returning to share her wisdom with our students.

PYP Exhibition

Posted on March 7

Throughout the Winter Term our Grade Six students work on their PYP Exhibition. The Exhibition allows our senior students to apply their skills and learning from their years in the IB Primary Years Program to this project, and demonstrate their learning to our school community.

Students begin by choosing a topic under the transdisciplinary theme, Sharing the Planet. This year they chose water issues for their inquiry. In groups they selected an area of water use and spent 7 weeks learning, researching, exploring, preparing their presentations and practising for the big day.

On Student Led Conference Day the Grade Six class presented their research and learning to the entire school. We also had visits students from 2 other local IB schools. It was a tremendous experience and we are so proud of our students. Well done Grade Six!
