In celebration of Earth Day this Sunday, the students have been learning all about the problem of plastics in our waterways, oceans, and in the environment, have learned about reducing, reusing and recycling plastics and other materials, and made posters to display around the school. They were very excited and engaged learning about this issue, and suggested some collective action (such as writing letters) that we will continue to pursue.
This coming week we will have our ADST (Applied Design, Science and Technology) Fair on Monday, April 23rd, in the morning for the Primaries, and on Tuesday, April 24th in the afternoon for the Intermediates.
On Wednesday we will attend our final Carousel Theatre performance of the year – The Spirit Horse. The story centers on two First Nations children whose lives are changed forever when their grandfather, who lives by the old ways on a prairie reserve, brings them a horse that has mysteriously appeared to him. The children feel an incredible bond to this majestic animal which links the girls and their dad to their Stoney Nation heritage.
Please complete a field trip consent form by Tuesday, April 24th. The cost is $11.00 per person.
Also, Thursday, April 26th is a Professional Day, so there are no classes.
Wishing you a happy Earth Day!
