The entire building went out for dinner downtown this week as the Sun Centre was hosting a “Founders Dinner” for board members, donors, and scholarship winners. It was a fabulous opportunity for Bolton boys and Timmis girls to mix and mingle and fun was had by all.
A couple of the big boys, Toby and Matt, determined if their rugby skills were transferable to Line Dancing during this week’s North American Culture theme on campus. Turns out Matt’s prairie upbringing was all he needed to throw down some impressive moves! As head of the Intercultural Council, Justin also got in on the action during the N. American Week chapel presentation.
Harry Huang started a charity “restaurant” and served up an amazing dinner for the Bolton HPs of Beef tenderloin, sauteed mushrooms, peas and carrots, and potato puree. It was divine!
During last weekend’s house games, Alex was a hero for Bolton house when he nailed a drop kick from half court to earn extra points for the house. Impressive stuff in front of the entire boarding community!
The Bolton Boys then went on to play very well in their soccer games and are only 9 points back of first place after the first round.
The team involved with the scavenger hunt was caught on camera trying to get everyone in the air at the same time. Success!
Neekan also tried to win us first chance at dinner with this rousing rendition of a werewolf!
After house games we found Ryan practicing for the school musical with Mr. Butterfield and we are pleased to say that he has been given a role along with Xavier.
The Rugby World Cup is in full flight and this weekend is the semifinals between England & New Zealand and Wales & South Africa. A contest was organized where students had to pick the winner, runner-up, and score for next weekend’s final, The closest to the actual result wins a vintage Rugby Canada fleece circa 2002 from Mr. Danskin’s playing days. There were many disappointed contestants when, at the time of writing, England had recently toppled the giant that is the New Zealand All Blacks, who many had favoured as winners.
Cookie baking for a local shelter was on the agenda for one of the Saturday activities, as was farming out at Farmer Jim’s where we were rewarded with some fresh pressed apple juice! There was some entertaining dialogue from the farming:
Tony: Excuse me sir your chicken escaped.
Farmer Jim: Well, can you catch him for me?
Tony: Uummmm I don’t know. (makes an attempt and fails) Ken you do it!
Ken stealthy moves into position and calmly snatches the bird.
Ken was then known as the “Chi-Ken Whisperer”.
There were also lots of routine moments at the school with classroom activities and hanging out in the common room. Here is Toby working on a presentation for Day of the Dead in his Spanish class and Ryan with his French teacher in the language lab. Fabian was hard at work on a puzzle and Ryan and Jason played some scintillating pool games.
