In the schools

Sabre Beat
By Arianna Sheppard and Demitria Taylor

It was our first week back after Easter break and students and teachers have been getting ready for the last nine weeks of school. Everyone is counting down the days until summer.

The Thursday before Easter break, the Grade 2 students did a wonderful job in leading the Easter assembly. They sang “Easter Lily” and had their own original Easter song with some really great actions to go along with it.

The Grade 2s at Sacred Heart are fabulous public speakers.

We bet they put a lot of hard work and effort into this awesome assembly. It was a phenomenal job by everyone who took part in the assembly.

This week our Grade 5 classes attended a mini powwow to conclude their studies of the First Nations people with particular emphasis on the Mi’kmaq culture. Students participated in drumming, dancing, talking circles and culture crafts.

The students and teachers would like to give a big thanks to those from the Qalipu Nation who gave so generously of their time and talent over the past six weeks.

They would also like to send a special thank you to Kevin Barnes, Michelle Matthews, Mitchell Blanchard and Margaret McKeon for making this learning experience so rich and memorable.

In Grade 6, Mme. Willett’s intensive core French students braved the cold wind Monday morning. Brrr! They went outside to do a French running dictation as relay teams. It was a great way to get some exercise (and frostbite) while learning.

In Ms. Caines’ social studies class students learned about Jainzi. Jainzi is a traditional Asian game in which players aim to keep a heavily weighted shuttle in the air using their bodies apart from their hands.

This game is played on a court similar to volleyball and badminton, or it may be played among a circle of players on a street. The goal of the game is to keep the shuttle in the air while showing off skills.

In sports news, our girls soccer team is up and running. The team is looking forward to hosting this year’s indoor tournament on May 9 and 10.

We would like to give a big shout out to James Adey, Kaydan Reid, Luke Thibeau and Braden White. They each won a silver medal in their respective provincial Atom hockey tournaments during the Easter break.


Elementary students are getting projects ready for the Science Showcase coming up in May.  We can’t wait to see what everyone put together.

And that’s it for this week’s Sabre Beat.
