JK/SK Sports Day
We hold a special Sports Play Day to start our youngest students off in the Phys Ed Program. Our Grade Six House Heads guide their JK and SK peers through a variety of activities on the playground. Climbing, running, ball games and balance activities are just some of the great challenges that make up this fun day.
At this event our youngest students work through events that help them develop coordination, teamwork, stamina and a love of physical activity.
This Sports Day gives the kids a great sense of accomplishment, and helps them develop confidence as they engage in learning a variety of sports skills.
Cross Country Meet
On October 6 the SBS Cross Country Team brought home 4 trophies in the under 10 and under 8 categories at the Somerset Meet against 8 other schools. Congratulations to Mr Woodward and his runners on their wonderful success!
Edwards Gardens Scavenger Hunt
Last week our Cross Country team participated in a meet on a gorgeous fall day. On days like that we plan activities for students who aren't on the team, to make the time their peers were off running into a meaningful day for them as well.
A bus took students and teachers to Edwards Gardens for a day of nature observation and sketching. We started with a splendid hike and scavenger hunt, searching for specific native plants as well as invasive species, learning the significance of the many trees and plants that grow in Toronto's ravines and parks. We explored the creek and gardens, the fields and woods.
Before we headed back to school, students pulled out their sketchbooks and spent a relaxed hour sketching the scenery, including the beautiful gardens. What a day we had!
The Annual SBS Terry Fox Run
Sunnybrook School gives back to the community with participation in the Terry Fox Run; students learn about contribution Terry Fox made to Canada and the courage he showed in his run across Canada.
In spite of the rainy weather, parents, teachers and students ran for an hour before returning to school. Our youngest students in JK and SK ran along Merton Street; we are very proud of their enthusiasm. It's a great event for the school and a powerful experience for our students. Over the years SBS has raised over $60,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation.
