It was a very busy week at Georges Vanier. Two special guests from Urban Safari Rescue Society, Karen and Kelsey, visited many of our primary classes. They shared a few exotic animals and the students learned many new things about how these animals survive and adapt to their environment. They also learned that “exotic” means not native to Canada.
During our monthly assembly on Thursday morning, primary teachers recognized students for working hard, improving in a specific area, helping out or including others. These awards are posted each week on a bulletin board in the main hallway.
The basketball season also started this week, with the boys’ and girls’ teams playing home games. Both games were very close and the athletes played exceptionally well. They showed good sportsmanship, fair play and team work.
Plans for Georges Vanier’s 50th Anniversary celebration is also underway. On Feb. 21 we are planning a school assembly at 10:30 as well as an open house from 3:00 – 4:30. We hope you are able to join us.
