Despite the rain showers, we had a blast at Sports Day this year! Sports Day is a relay-based event, with 40 teams rotating around 10 different stations. Our Grade 7 leaders planned, built and operated each of the 10 stations, planned the first aid/lost & found, and photographed the event. Way to go, Grade 7s!
While there was no theme this year, we continued to live our school motto “Not for Ourselves Alone”, and used one of the stations to “Fill a Bucket!” The language of bucket filling has become synonymous with being kind and thoughtful. Each student brought a $1 or $2 coin and we filled the Greater Vancouver Food Bank’s “bucket” with a donation.
