When one enters the world of SMUS boarding, it is very easy to become tempted by delicious treats that seem to find their way into nearly all of the common spaces. This week, our collective challenge was limiting ourselves to only one of these delicious chocolate chip cookies that were baked up by our own Hanson Chan and Mr. Shaw…
Of course, some of us were not able to rise to that challenge and indulged in two, three, or more… To burn off those scrumptious calories, the Bolton boys kept busy and had an active week in and around the house. On Thursday afternoon, with the smoke clearing up in the skies, a group of the guys headed out to the fields to throw the ol’ pigskin around. Diego, Ryan, Richard, Jonathan, LeRoy, Adam and Subaig all worked up a sweat and had a great time.
The late evening was also an exciting time, with several members of the Bolton/ Timmis community letting the music flow and getting themselves into the dancing groove on the Wii. With Roberto leading by example, everyone had a great time practising their dance moves and partying up a storm.
We also had several of the Bolton boys head out to the fields for senior rugby. Kevin, Richard, both Adams, Roberto, Will, Eric, Subaig, and Louis donned their cleats and enjoyed some handling drills and touch rugby games under the grey skies.
Darrell, Diego and Richard decided to dust off their ping pong paddles and duke it out on the… table. There were some fierce rallies, and more than a few rivalries were sparked this night.
Today we hosted our first boarding House Games. The sun was shining and there were smiles everywhere – although that is a bit of a speculation because the masks were on! Students participated in a variety of fun little challenges to help generate some intra-house spirit.
