Feels Like Summer!

We are coming to the tail end of an amazing May heat wave and the temps have been in the low twenties with no rain for a couple weeks. But rain is on the horizon, so everyone has been working hard to get their vitamin D while they can! Below are a few of the Saturday activities that were on offer this weekend.

Several students went to Westhills Stadium to take in the Women’s World Sevens Rugby Tournament. We saw ten games and were fortunate enough to see Canada play twice. They played amazingly well and beat Brazil and Ireland to eventually finish second in their pool. Many of the SMUS Girls Rugby Team were in attendance and some played in a representative midday match-up against Rugby Canada youth players.

Some other students participated in a neighborhood clean up and strolled around picking up garbage within the residential blocks surrounding the school.

Another crew of students went to Thetis Lake for a hike through the woods. The wild flowers are coming out and it was a beautiful day for a trek.

One of the last events of the day was a cheesy bread fest. Laurent, Antonio, and I have been talking about making a Hy’s Steakhouse Cheesy Bread clone for a couple months now and it finally fell into place. After careful ingredient selection, we put our taste buds to the test and were quite pleased the the results. Our bread was very close to the irresistible quality at Hy’s Steakhouse and after making enough to feed a small army, we shared our wares with the house and the rest of boarding.
