After lunch every day, the Grade 5 Students have a class period called "Chimera Time". In this period students cover some outcomes of the health curriculum related to wellness and relationships. In November, the students took an in-depth look at bullying. There is still a lot of confusion about what is and is not bullying. This chart helps clarify the difference.
