This beautiful Sunday was the perfect day to kick off the House games season. While the last ones were very fun, they did not officially count towards the House Cup Challenge points, so today brought with it a heightened level of excitement and anticipation. The competition was fierce as you can see from the photo below!
It was actually just Mr. Danskin dressed as a zombie as part of the escape room excitement! We had 5 teams participating in outdoor 7 aside and indoor 5 aside soccer along with an escape room and photo scavenger hunt. The boys played with great heart, grit and honor.
This was followed by a delicious Country Western dinner in the Sun Center. Finn and Jack showed us their line dancing skills as they put on a show to see which house would get to eat first.
We also had a chance to check in with Harry to see how his week was and his first duty shift as a senior in Bolton:
Mr. Daum: Harry, how was your first shift as a senior doing duty in the house?
Harry: It was just normal because I know the chores already because I have been on duty before as a grade 10!
Mr. Daum: What was the best part of house games today?
Harry: That none of the teams made it out of the escape room.
Mr. Daum: If you could be any animal what would you be? Why?
Harry: A panda! Because I get all the love.
Mr. Daum: Which course are you currently enjoying most?
Harry: Creative Writing because it’s not math based.
Mr. Daum: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? What do you want to be now?
Harry: I wanted to be a super hero, I guess, everyone one does right? I actually don’t know what i want to be now.
Mr. Daum: How does it feel to have the same roommate in grade 11 that you had in Grade 8?
Harry: It feels like I don’t need to spend time getting to know him because I already know him pretty well.
Mr. Daum: If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only have one food, what would it be?
Harry: The bubblegum from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The one that is like a meal.
Mr. Daum: If you could listen to one song right now, what would it be?
Harry: In the name of love by Martin Garrix.
Mr. Daum: Thank you Harry. Do you know any good jokes?
Harry: No, I suck at making jokes.
Mr. Daum: That’s too bad.
Here are Laurent and Harry on their duty shift together tonight, what a pair!
