The Humanities 8 class began their stewardship of Fleetwood Park today during the city-wide Clean Sweep Week. We spent the morning picking up litter along 80 Avenue and in Fleetwood Park and collected 2 bags. As a treat for Feel Good Friday, we ended our garbage collection with 10 minutes on the playground.
We will be continuing to take care of Fleetwood Park by picking up litter every 1-2 weeks and logging how much we collect.
What a day it was! We visited four houses of worship: a Hindu temple, Muslim mosque, Sikh gurdwara and Christian church with the rest of the grade 8 class. At each site, we got to take in new sights and learn about each religion from an expert. We were even fortunate enough to take part in langar and have a wonderful meal at the gurdwara. The students asked good questions and were respectful and open-minded participants in the experience. I look forward to hearing your impressions of the trip tomorrow.
Our field trip to the Surrey Food Bank this week was a success! Thank you to the parents who volunteered with us and drove students to the Food Bank. Please ask your child about the experience and what they saw, learned and felt during his/her time there.
A reminder to Humanities 8 students going to the Food Bank on Monday or Tuesday.
Please meet the class by the gym doors at 9am. You will not need your bag with you.
