Halloween!

This time of year is always an exciting one!

There are many activities that take place in the school and in boarding for our Bolton boys to take part in. This week saw the grade 11s partake in Leadership Development workshops to help prepare them for future leadership roles in the school and in life.

On Thursday all of the Bolton boys attended a house dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory. This “Founders Dinner” is in recognition of our founder and namesake, W.W. Bolton. Click here to see all about this accomplished man who is our namesake! The dinner is an opportunity for the boys and the houseparents to get off campus together and share a meal outside of Brown Hall. We were also lucky to have Mr. Culham (former houseparent) join us and visit with the boys.

Next came Halloween! Many students and staff dressed up! Mr. Shaw made sure everyone was on time for his science classes, Joel, ahem, I mean, Mr. President, made sure things ran smoothly. Thanks to all the boys and staff that made such great costumes and congratulations to Joel and Diego for winning prizes!

In the evening, before the fireworks (click here for video) and haunted house (organised by Diego and other seniors), the grade 8s went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Howlapalooza came rocking up next with many of the Bolton boys playing music at the live musical event! Thanks to Laurent, Garry, Phillipe, Jack, Timmy, Mr. Bateman, David L and, of course, Anderson for some great performances!

Great to see so many Bolton Buds share their talent with the community!

With the excitement of Halloween safely behind us, on Saturday we enjoyed a variety of activities, including swimming and a 3D IMAX film on D-Day. David X was especially adventurous as he participated in the grueling Mud Sweat and Tears race.

After Sunday’s Chapel, during our house meeting. Mr. Bateman and Mr. Daum presented Boarding Colours to two of our house leaders John and Diego. These two fine young men have consistently shown a high level of commitment to the house and boarding, with extremely high levels of personal and social responsibility. Congratulations boys! We hope your example will inspire other worthy seniors.
