The November Long weekend provided everyone with a much needed break. Before we said goodbye and parted ways, we all took part in the annual Remembrance Day assembly. Together we remembered service members from around the world, as well as the fallen SMUS boys, that lost their lives fighting for their countries.
Since we have been back, there have been many events that the boys have taken part in. Housegames was a blast with basketball and many fun minute to win it games.
The Bolton Chapel was a huge success. We had excellent speeches from Will and Joel who spoke about strength. Xavier and Vincent sang a tune together while Garry, Will, Joel and Laurent were the lead soloists in the final song of the evening. The whole house, including Housparents, came together in song.
The senior boys soccer team won the island championships and played hard in Burnaby at the Provincials. They made it to the finals without allowing a single goal but unfortunately came up short against Langley and took home the silver medal. Overall they had an excellent season and should be commended for their efforts.
The grade 9s and 10s were involved in a plethora of experiential education activities this past week. Our very own Mr. Baer ran a Thai cooking workshop with several students. The food was amazing and everyone had a great time.
Josh braved the cold to take part in the rowing city championships. Their 8 was able to clinch second place, beating Mt Doug by only 1 meter.
Saturday activities this week included baking, farming, street hockey, decorating for Christmas with seniors and a Christmas craft fair.
Here are some other photos of the variety of things we get up to during the week. Will was at rehearsal for the lead role in Catch Me If You Can. The whole house sang Happy Birthday to Patt in a House meeting. All the boys signed Thank You/Christmas cards for the 20 or so different teams on campus that make our experience at SMUS so positive. we also enjoyed a very fancy Hawaiian themed Community Dinner including baked salmon.
