Houses of Worship field trip

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.

The ELL 1 class counted and we only have 12 more school days after today until the end of the semester. For full-year classes like Humanities, it will be business as usual but for semester classes, they will be ending on January 24. Semester 2 will start on January 29th with a Flex Day.

I’m looking forward to a good year and hope that we can work hard to make this a great start.
