This past week at the school, we were treated to some awesome costumes, exciting contests, and plenty of laughter and smiles as we came together to celebrate Halloween! This holiday is always an exciting time at the Senior School, and the Bolton Penguins definitely stepped up to the plate and donned their finest getups. Surprisingly, however, there were no penguin costumes to be found… We did have a chicken and a dinosaur, though.
On Halloween night, everyone in the house helped to transform the first and second floors into a haunted house trick-or-treating experience. Both the traffic and the screams were at an all-time high as we welcomed trick-or-treaters from every single house in boarding.
Our Bolton Penguins, including Seb and Oscar, were not slacking on the academic front, as evidenced by the careful measurements and painstaking calculations on display in Physics 12.
In that same class, Oscar and his classmates were treated to some amazing field hockey action by the SMUS Senior team, who were recently crowned provincial champions for the first time since 1996..!
Ai, Teigan and his classmates were working hard on their drawings with Mr. Ingmundson…
… while Josh and Connor, under the guidance of Mr. Farish, displayed their musical talents in band class.
Marcus and the Junior Soccer team wrapped up their season with an exciting Islands tournament at UVic.
Connor, Declan, Peter and several of their friends watched the movie Up in the common room on the weekend.
Lastly, the Bolton Penguins came together on Sunday evening to host a brilliant Boarder’s Chapel for the other houses and their houseparents! Peter, Ai, Seb and Lucas were recognized for their willingness to go above and beyond to make the whole night a huge success.
We now look ahead to a slightly short week that culminates with the annual Remembrance Day Service. Until the next post, stay safe, and be on the lookout for a special Bolton Chapel video in the next issue!
