Students and Staff show school spirit during Spirit Week! Sept. 24-30, 2015 Newsletter #8
The Grades 9/10 Religious Studies class has been looking at the design of churches and its symbolism. Each student created a model of a church. Here are just some of their projects:
The students in Home Ec were challenged with an assessment to plan and cook a full meal. Some of the dishes were: capsicums stuffed with fried rice, chicken parmesan, alu paratha, and
a brunch dish with Greek potatoes.
Spirit Week is a chance to show our school spirit, as well as be a
bit silly! Before the Track/Field and Swim competition this week, we had three days with these themes: Rugby, Heroes, and Backwards.
Some of the heroes were Superman/Clark Kent, Malala, ‘Dad’, and even a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! It’s so entertaining to see what ideas students and staff come up with!
Some of the winners were:
Ricky, Rohan, Auntie Stepahnie, Micah, JuYoung, Simran, Mr. Lehmann, HyoSuk, Paul, Colleen and Miss Warwick.
In Chapel I (Christine) gave a brief history of the beginnings of Murree in the 1850’s until British rule ended in 1947. Hill stations were established as a place for British soldiers to rest and recuperate, but quickly became a community for the general British military and civilians as well. Most of the material I presented was from the wonderful book by Virgil Miedema, Murree – A Glimpse Through the Forest. This is part of our year-long celebration of the 60 years of MCS!
