Education Week

Last week was Education Week!

On Friday, we participated in three fun Education Week experiences:

  • The Life Education Program
  • The Estimation Exhibition
  • Open Classroom for parents

Life Education Program

We visited the Life Education van and our module was titled, “All Systems Go”. Instructor Gaye, and her helper Harold, led us through some discussions and activities about the functions of various parts of our body. We focussed on the circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system and the nervous system.


Estimation Exhibition

For the past few weeks, classes have been preparing “estimation jars” for our first school-wide Estimation Exhibition. On Friday, all classes spent some time at the Estimation Exhibition in our gym, recording their estimations of the collections. It was fun and challenging!


Open Classroom

To celebrate Education Week, parents and family members were invited into our classrooms to participate in some interactive activities with the students. The activities in our classroom included a variety of mathematical card games focussing on improving ‘mental strategies’, Scattergories and blogging.



Here are some photos from our Fun Friday!
