The future leaders of Bolton House took part in a leadership activity at French Beach. The grade 11’s spend the day working through a series of games and activities that were completed through teamwork and group bonding. It was a great excuse to get outdoors and enjoy the beach. After the day’s events, we all enjoyed a BBQ that included a campfire and some smore roasting. A big thank you to Mr. Danskin and Mr. Daum for organizing the event.
Saturday activities this week included pizza making, a trip to Fort Rodd Hill, an art class, a dim sum cultural tour and an architecture tour.
Michele from the Fort Rodd Hill service activity said “We had a great group out at Fort Rodd Hill. We got to learn a little about native plant species, observe pollinators and then thin a native plant that was taking over the meadow. The group also had time at the end to explore the area, including the lighthouse and beach.”
This past week was Afro Society week which included a very delicious African themed dinner. Joel and Bolu were a part of the chapel presentation. Joel impressed everyone with a very thoughtful speech.
Over Spring Break many of the boys attended international trips. There was an Australian rugby tour, a Japanese cultural experience, and service trips to Nicaragua and India.
The annual Boot game was this past week and although the boys were defeated by Oak Bay, there were lots of fans cheering the boys on.
