Grade 9 News

The Grade Nine Canoe trip was an incredible experi- ence for us all. Although the forecast was ominous, we headed into Canada’s great north. Our coolers were full of junk food, our bus was filled with tarps and our hearts were filled with anticipation. The weather was perfect as the pouring rain held off until the last hour of our quest. Being in the middle of the lake in the pouring rain was amazing.

When we weren’t on the lake, we sat around blazing fires, played crazy games and stayed up well past our regular bedtimes just like big kids. Special thanks to Mr. Graham and Mr. Anderson for planning the trip. Thanks also to the parent chaperones who brought the perfect attitude of work, rest and play. And last but certainly not least, hail to the bus driver, Harold, who maneuvered us safely home under tornado filled skies.

This is the last newsletter of the year. It’s been great from start to finish. On behalf of myself, Mr. Graham, thanks to the students for a memorable year.
