On Friday, March 3, all of the students in Grades 3 to 7 participated in the Fun-a-Rama House Event. Fun-a-rama is an annual competition where each House builds teams for a variety of relays, obstacle courses, and other exciting events. Throughout the event, every student will represent their house several times. Our Grade 7 House Leaders are the key planners and organizers of this massively fun event. For nearly two hours Rand Gymnasium was rocking with the music, cheering, stomping, and clapping that come with outstanding spirit and sportsmanship. After it was all said and done, a big congratulations goes out to Cypress for claiming the Fun-a-Rama trophy and 50 points towards the House Shield!
The Food Bank Frenzy (FBF), the Junior School’s first official House Event of the 2022-23 school year, took place on Tuesday, October 11. Gaining points towards the highly coveted House Shield is always exciting. For the FBF, we ask each student to bring two cans and a toonie to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB). Using a relay race, the Houses compete to be the first team to deliver their bounty to the middle of the field. With the music pumping and the teams cheering, our motto “Not for Ourselves Alone!” takes on a very high level of energy. This year, the winning House was Pine. Congratulations to Pine and a big THANK YOU to our community for supporting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
