|Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra
Today our Grade 7s and 8s went off to see an incredible performance. They had the opportunity to share in a Concert done just for students, where brass powerhouse Jens Lindemann performed for the audience! Jens is the first classical trumpet player to receive the prestigious Order of Canada award. We are so fortunate to have this opportunity for our students!
Officer Spivak came to speak to various classes throughout the school. She spoke to the students about thinking before reacting or participating in a conversation on cell phones. Officer Spivak spoke to students about taking a pause before writing anything. She reminded the students of all the safe adults they can go to for assistance in any different situations.
Officer Spivak will be returning in December to meet with the remainder of our classes and students.
|Ladies & Gentlemen – Boys & Girls
This week we brought in an amazing performance, with some of the activity fees that you paid at the beginning of the year. The Roseneath Theatre came in and put on the play Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, for all of our Grade 6 & 7 students. There will be a different performance coming for the Grade 8s in the new year.
This performance reminded us how to be a friend to those who are struggling with their own identity. Children will be continuing these conversations in their classrooms with their teachers.
Here is a link to the performance trailer:
