Looking back on pasts posts and reading over this week, it is amazing the variety of activities the students take on…
Last week, Joel, Timmy, and Diego continued their work with the Victoria Art Gallery’s New Extremes workshop on photography. Their portfolios completed, they are now able to experiment with different kinds of cameras including this tradition large format film camera. the show open at the gallery this Thursday!
On Friday night, the grade 8s played Bubble Soccer. A game of soccer where all of the players were encased in bubbles from their knees up so as to protect them as they bumped into one another, bouncing all over the gym. It was hilarious.
There is more information about the game of Bubble Soccer on the Grade 8 blog here: http://smusgrade8boarders.blogspot.ca/
On Saturday, some students attended High Tea at the Empress, while others went swimming or to the IMAX.
And then there was the Musical! Legally Blonde was previewed at assembly…
And then there were the actual performances in the McPherson Playhouse downtown Victoria. A few Anderson, Brad and Christian graced the stage, while Ted hard backstage to make sure things ran smoothly, and Max played cello in the pit orchestra.
Brad had this to say about his experience in Legally Blonde:
“My involvement further developed my skills as an actor, and provided me with new experiences. Participating in our school’s production also gave me the opportunity to meet other students who I otherwise wouldn’t have met, as the play involved students from all four grades of the senior school.”
Another boy was commenting on the tears of joy and camaraderie behind the scenes. When asked if he wanted to be part of the musical next year he said: “Yes definitely.”
