Bolton Creates Community

This week marks the end of the first (and longest) term of the school year. As Term 1 draws to a close, students are recovering from University applications, important tests, and provincial athletic championships.

Bolton House was also in charge of the latest community dinner, and decided upon the theme of “Comfort” to celebrate the community we live in and de-stress from a long term. Some of our Bolton boys led meditation for the entire boarding population and even prepared a menu at our fantastic new dining hall (it was very tasty)! Here are some photos from the dinner:

We also competed hard in House Games and are currently in second place behind Barnacle House – but we are very close and the year is still young!

And we also celebrated Patt’s birthday this weekend! Here are some pictures from his celebration:

Even with all of the time spent on academics, some of our students even had time to volunteer at Farmer Jim’s, helping him prepare his gardens with much needed soil. It is encouraged that all of our Bolton boys take part in service initiatives throughout the year. Here are some pictures from the work they did:

This week, we have many activities including our SMUS Christmas Gala, hosted by the Parent’s Auxiliary at the Crystal Gardens in downtown Victoria. Families are welcome to attend this formal event, which will see our boarding students and day families come together for a wonderful buffet dinner, auction, and dance. We are very much looking forward to seeing our Bolton Boys in their very best suits! We’ll share some pictures from the event next week.

Wishing everybody the best as we move into December!
