In the schools

Sacred Heart has shown its artistic side this week.  Following the Grade 4 art and reading project on the book “The Kite Fighters,” they designed their own kites and wrote their names in Chinese calligraphy.

They displayed them outside their classroom. Also, our younger students did an art project of their own. Grade 1 students in Ms. Grandy’s class made beautiful spring-coloured Easter eggs.  But they aren’t the only ones painting coloured eggs.

Our kindergarten classes also demonstrated their artistic skills painting very colourful eggs as well.

And now back to Ms. Grandy’s class.  For their special of the week they have Abigail Howell.  They also made a delightful batch of Play-doh. They used Jello to colour it and make it smell nice.

The Grade 3 students finished their dioramas depicting Dr. Wilfred Grenfell’s experience of being lost on the ice over a 100 years ago.  They worked really hard and did an amazing job.  They also wrote a letter pretending to be Dr. Grenfell on the ice. They stained paper with tea bags to make it look like a letter from long ago.

These dioramas will be used during their Newfoundland Cultural Literacy Night in May.

It was a busy week for the public health nurse.

On Monday, students from kindergarten to Grade 4 attended presentations on topics such as dental care and healthy eating.

On Tuesday, our Grade 6s attended a presentation on puberty. It was buckets of fun.

In sports news, our primary students are so excited to go skating and get some exercise.  They have their last primary skating trip this week.

By the way, we also have some students and teachers participating in the Silver Blades ice show on Saturday.

In music news, our school participated in the Rotary Music Festival last week.

Our primary choir sang on Tuesday while the kindergartens and elementary choir sang on Friday. Our talented Music teacher, Mr. Tucker, directed us.

It was such a wonderful experience for the students and Mme. Willett said our singing is music to her ears.

And now for the saddest news.

The staff and students would like to say good-bye to Ms. Samantha Bennett.  She has been completing her teaching internship in Ms. Park’s Grade 5 class.

We wish her luck. We think you will be a great teacher.
