A big thank you to everyone who participated in ensuring the success of World Book Day! We were highly pleased to receive so many creative submissions for the bookmark contest and it was hard to choose a winner. Congratulations to Clara from grade 2 and Jacqueline from grade 7 for coming up with the winning bookmark designs. Our school director was astounded at how amazing the bookmarks turned out and enthusiastically claimed the first one.
Grade six students, accompanied by their social studies teachers Ms. Wellon and Mr. Urban, travelled to Amsterdam to explore the “Golden Age” of the Netherlands. The group visited the “Amsterdam Historic Museum” where they had a guided tour on the “Golden Age” of Amsterdam touching on the importance of explorers and ship builders at the time. They also explored the “National Maritime Museum,” set in the old warehouse used to store all of the materials needed for journeys around the world. The students were also able to climb aboard a life size model of the ship “The Amsterdam” and enjoy the special exhibit on whaling during this period.
