The whole house got out on Saturday to participate in a classic Canadian past time: cheering at a hockey game. In fact all the boys houses got together, feasting on pop, hotdogs, popcorn and big hits on the ice. Our local junior team, the Victoria Royals, defeated the Vancouver Giants 4-2 to resounding cheers. That evening, Mrs. Bateman brewed traditional Mexican hot chocolate, not to continue the Canadian theme, but actually to help some of our grade eights celebrate Mexican Independence day with a little taste of home! Thanks Mrs. B!
