SWC Volunteers

CJP is benefitting from the volunteer contributions of students from Sir Winston Churchill high school! Volunteers will be assisting with the café on Wednesday at our celebration of learning, they are all set to assist at our annual Stampede breakfast, and we have three students who will be joining us each Tuesday for six weeks and working with a variety of students.

My name is Subasthika and I am a grade 12 full IB student attending Sir Winston Churchill high school. I’m super excited to work with the kids at CJP and provide them with personalized and fun learning experiences. I have plenty of volunteering experience that have allowed me to develop a broad skill set. I’ve volunteered with the Calgary Public Library for several years now, where I’ve worked with kids in order to help build skills for school and spark interest in the sciences and arts. I also have lots of experience working with and aiding organizations such as the Canadian Blood Services and Cerebral Palsy Kids and Families. Aside from studying and volunteering, I also play curling competitively, currently my team is ranked highly in Alberta. I actively participate in clubs at school and I also have experience in science fair and in numerous math contests. I hope that I’ll be able to use my skills and experiences to help kids at CJP through the mentorship program. Looking forward to a great couple weeks!

My name is Johnson and I’m a grade 12 IB diploma student at Sir Winston Churchill high-school. I enjoy participating in many extracurricular activities such as Junior Achievement, Debate, Model United Nations, and many other activities. Combined with my interest in academics my hope is to impart what I have learnt from my activities to other students to foster their interests. Leaving lasting skills such as public speaking and problem solving in the minds of others is my goal while working with others!

My name is Jielin and I’m a grade 12 IB diploma student at Sir Winston Churchill high-school. This week at CJP, I was responsible for the grade 4s. My tasks for CJP include introducing children to new and various areas underneath the Arts category, especially activities related to drama or theatre. This will challenge the students to think outside the box and explore new interests. Over the recess this week, we played a game that required physical movement. This was a small and simple game, but it allowed the students to come together collectively to achieve success. As well, it allowed students to be creative with their body movement and challenged them to memorize these movements as the game progresses. Following the recess, the three volunteers gave lessons regarding public speaking. It was great being able to get the students to interact among one another despite some being shy. Although the time was short, the students and I had a great time working together! 

Gardening Club

Our Indoor Garden Tower has arrived and we are very excited! Our club began assembling the tower this week. Our plan is to give every classroom a pod to plant some flowers or vegetables. Hopefully we will be able to use the plants we grow to plant in our discovery gardens this spring. If anyone has any extra flower or vegetable seeds they would like to donate we would be happy to take them. If you have any questions please email Ms. Humphrey at
Let's get growing from the gardening club.
Ms. Humphrey, Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. Ross
