Housegames were two weeks ago, but it took a while to get the photos ready as we were too busy celebrating our third House Cup Championship in a row. So here are some more shots from the day.
We also have some great shots of the boys celebrating after they were announced as winners of the cup.
Here are the leaders of the house with the trophy. Logan and Jack have some big shoes to fill!
Garry and Laurent also won an award at the Smoscars. Garry for “Most Likely To Return as a Houseparent” and Laurent for “The Glass Jaguar Award for strangest injury” with his dislocated hip!
This week on Tuesday the Middle School hosted their very popular French Food Truck in the quad. This event sees the grade 8 students prepare, advertise and sell various food and drinks, all while speaking in French. All four of our grade 8 Bolton boys were involved with Nokia, Diego and Seb selling some delicious Croque Monsieurs and Luciano working at the very popular burger station. It was a beautiful day and business was brisk, even Mr. Daum couldn’t resist a few treats.
The annual Athletics Banquet was held Wednesday evening and Bolton was very well represented. We had boys on almost every senior “A” team this year including, soccer, rugby, basketball, tennis, track and field, badminton, squash, and sailing. Stanley and Joel both won a major award being selected by their respective teammates as the best team player and best example of what it means to be a student athlete, well done boys!
Friday was a busy day with the annual Walk for water event back in action with the watermelon eating competition which Joel and Toby participated in. Toby came out victorious with some superior eating technique.
And here is the action live!
Friday night was also busy with an open mic session in the Sun Center. Will read some of his poetry and Laurent sang and performed some magic.
Finally, today was the Bolton Timmis BBQ which is always a good time. We had hot dogs and snacks, a variety of field sports and of course, the slip n’ slide was a big hit with everyone!
We are down to our final three days of classes next week and then exams begin as the grade 10 group heads out on their final experiential trips. Our first boys will start leaving next weekend and so the packing and cleaning has begun. It has been a tremendous year and we look forward to saying goodbye in a more formal way this Tuesday night with the final boarders chapel and our farewell speeches. Stay tuned for one more update next week.
