The stars came out for Alumni Weekend!

The week’s competitive tone was set with House Games! Batters up!

That’s one way to get on base!

After a tremendous performance, we needed to celebrate with a house dinner at Red Robin where the endless french fries made for some very happy and very full boys!

Before the Alumni Weekend, our senior boys and girls rugby teams broke bread at the Victoria Golf Course. This annual event is hosted by former SMUS rugby players who presented the players with a jersey and shared many stories of their time at SMUS and their later success at the Provincial, National and International level. This was the first time the girls’ team had joined us and it was so great to finally share the event with all rugby players.

What a team! 8 Bolton boys!

Then it was finally time! Alumni Weekend is upon us! The day started with our graduating class receiving their SMUS Grad Bear.

The weekend was full of festivities! Josh and Louis were playing some great tunes as part of the orchestra band while Rentaro and Lucas helped out at the market place

A SMUS Alumni Weekend staple filled the day – lets play some rugby! The juniors had a comprehensive win against Shawnigan Lake with Bolton speedster Marcus notching a try in the corner. The Senior team was in tough against the #1 ranked Collingwood team and while the did not get the victory they displayed some excellent skill and courage.

The boys are excited after a big win!

An incredible part of Alumni Weekend is the return of some of our boarding community! It was great to see past and present Bolton brothers connecting over the memories they share!

We now settle into the academic focus of the final week of term 5 and the beginning of AP Exams. The weather has started to turn to sunshine and warmth so everyone is feeling just a bit happier. We continue to be impressed by the many wonderful accomplishments of all our Boltonites and look forward to more excitement as the final housegames approach, sports enter championship season and, of course, our Grade 12 students begin to prepare for graduation! Go Bo!
