Brain Walk ~ May 22, 2019
Brain walk is an interactive tool that walks through the brain to help students from kindergarten through grade six learn about the different functions of the brain and about how to keep their brain safe and healthy.
Brain walk engaged participants with interactive questions, displays, demonstrations, and hands on activities. Students are divided into small groups of 5 or 6 and proceed through 10 stations.
On March 15th, Sgt. Willie from The Prince Albert City Police Service Community Relations Division, came by the school and issued to six of our students a "Positive Ticket". These students were recognized as leaders in our school, being a positive role model to our younger students as well as being leaders in our community. Various business owners in our community donated the prizes that our students received.
On Tuesday, April 10th the coaches of the Annual Bergen Cup, challenged the grade 8's to a friendly game of floor hockey.
