Sports Day Fun

IMG_1872Every school celebrates its own form of sports day and the children very longingly look forward to the day.  May is marked for the occasion, as at this time, the weather is cooperative for most parts.  This year was no exception, the rains held out until lunch was served!

Weeks before the sports day. the staff are planning the races, putting the teams together and the children begin to practice by revisiting all of their old favourite races!  There is a great deal of tradition at Strathcona and some of the races are ones that have been around for years!  On Friday, the classes all gathered either in MacLean Park or the auditorium to start the day off with enthusiastic cheers to begin the rest of the day’s events.

The smiles throughout the day spoke volumes.  Everyone enjoyed the day, cheered each other on, and did their very best.  Huge thanks goes out to our staff Sports Day planners who brought this all together into one fun-filled day!IMG_2093 IMG_2098 IMG_2105 IMG_2122 IMG_2124 IMG_2136


Rainy is gone D:

An update from Kandyss and Camilla


It’s been 23 days and now and  Rainy’s gone!!  Rainy was the only chick that survived and sadly the rest didn’t hatch. He was was with us for 3 days as a baby chick. Now his owner came to pick him up , because he didn’t have anymore food left. So now our class is quiet , we’ll miss you Rainy!!

Baby Chicks :)

Thank you to Kandyss for this most recent update.

It’s been 21 days since the chickens have been in our classroom.  So far only one has hatched. Its name is Rainy, because it was born during the thunder storm yesterday, May 12th 2013.


The chick had a hard time getting out of its egg , but it got out anyways. The class thought it was pretty cool that the baby chick (Rainy) was born during a thunder storm. 🙂egg2

Leaving The Nest!…and update on more student learning!

IMG_2063Hi there everyone, our names are Ethan and Jadon from div.2.  Not only are we growing salmon but now we have a new addition. We are here to update you people on what’s happening within our chicken eggs. In Ms.Persoon’s class we recently received five chicken eggs. Our incubating eggsRight now they are in  a warzone called “the egg” where they are 12 days away from hatching into the dangerous jouney of the world. Meanwhile the salmon [fry stage]  are ready to be realeased on Friday May 3rd, 2013 in Beaver Creek, Stanley Park. It will be the journey of their lives, hopefuly they will survive 10 minutes.  If they get caught, they will probaly turn into a “fried” salmon.  That concludes our update on the chickens and salmon. We’ll share our salmon release photos after our trip tomorrow!  Thanks for reading our blog!!Ready to swim away
