Spring Forward

This morning, the boys turned their clocks forward one hour for Daylight Savings. This means the days are getting longer, and soon, the weather will also get warmer. As we look back on another completed term, we look forward to Spring Break in a few days where we will all have a chance to pause. This time away from campus is extremely important, since we return to a very academic third term with AP Exams, final essays, and for some, graduation.

Last week, Bolton House gathered together with our sister house, Timmis, and ventured downtown to Frankies Diner for a wonderful house dinner. Here are some pictures from the evening:

Each Saturday, our boarding program offers a service activity where students volunteer across the city. This week, Adam and Ryan joined a few other boarders and headed out to clean the local beaches of Victoria. There was no garbage left after we finished, so that the beaches can be enjoyed by all, especially the wildlife that calls the space home.

On campus, the Bolton Boys were busy with their academics. Alan worked on a virtual reality project in Art class, and Tuan, Neme, Turay, and Misha experimented in science.Alan VR.jpg

Toby cooked up a storm in Spanish class, making Tacino con datiles with his friends.

In our Boarding Common room, Misha and Laurent have began a cooking pursuit and are starting to make some wonderful meals for the other Bolton Boys (and the house parents). Yesterday, they made gourmet burgers from scratch!

Recently, we have seen some great performances in Chapel. This weekend, Winslow House presented a message about Living in Harmony. Last week, Joel participated in a Stomp performance for the chapel about Black History Month. Here is a video of the great performance:

At our last house meeting, Nokia was awarded a Bolton Pin for his amazing contribution to the Middle School musical production of Seussical the Musical.

It was a fabulous show that saw the whole middle school community come together. Here are some pictures from the show:

A lot of ours students are traveling on Service Trips around the World. Costa Rica, Tanzania, and Europe are among some of those destinations. We can’t wait to hear about their trips and post some pictures upon their return. Until then, we wish you all some quality family time over Spring Break. We will resume our consistent blog activity in April at the start of Term 3.
