The boys are back in town! It is great to have the house full again after what sounded like an enjoyable holiday break for many. There were lots of enviable trips to hear about and it sounds like everyone is recharged and ready to bear down for the remainder of Term 2.
Below are a few miscellaneous items to share from before the break. Laurent showed off some magic to his homeroom peers. Mr. Shaw looks like he is preparing his surprised face knowing that Laurent has developed quite a significant talent in the art of magic.
Biology 12 students were studying anatomy and created anatomically correct gingerbread men to help get into the holiday spirit!
Gr. 10 students designed and built mousetrap cars in physics class and raced them to glory. Events included, distance, speed, and an obstacle challenge!
This past Friday night may have seen the start of a new trend. Misha spearheaded some pizza making and Garry was quick to help out with the cooking. The pizzas were all made from scratch, then hand tossed was shared with other Bolton and Timmis students. The boys are currently coming up for a name for their cooking night and are going to try making something different each weekend. It sounds like fried chicken may be next on the menu!
Yesterday saw the third annual Bolton House Penguin Swim. The event is a spin off of the well known traditional Polar Bear Swim that is known as a way to cleanse the body at the start of a new year. Bolton adopted the Penguin Swim as a wonderful way for the Bolton Brothers to bond after the break and show some strength of will. This year saw four intrepid brothers, Will, Toby, Javier, and Antonio, who were able to outlast all others. This year also saw the highest number of participants to date and the most amount of guys going in past their waist; several were even seen having a casual little swim! Well done boys!

Well that Penguin Swim certainly got all the boys awoken from the Christmas break! Thanks for sharing.
