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.

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.
