Terry Fox Run Walk
Highlighting our school focus on Active Living and Good Citizenship, Midnapore students simulated a global run/walk honouring Terry Fox. We ran/walked around our school field
Donations to the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope have reached over $500. Students may still bring their donations to the office. We will continue accepting donations until the end of September.
Thank you to Shawnessey Co-op, for donating 30 Watermelons - our refreshing snack after the Walk/Run.
We are delighted to participate in yet another fabulous year of the SoundKreations Dance Residency.
SoundKreations mandate is as follows:
To introduce a method of maintaining physical health and developing Physical Literacy in a fun and accessible way. To develop the student’s skills as collaborative workers and creative problem solvers. To give students an opportunity to develop new methods of healthy and creative recreation. To give students a new framework within which the creative process is socially encouraged. To explore an art‐form with ancient roots through a modern‐day lens giving renewed appreciation for the creative process. To deliver the program in such a way that the students relate immediately to the instructor and material, bringing the participation and involvement of the students to an exceptionally high level. To create a safe environment for the students to explore, create, and perform within. To offer endless opportunities for success!
Our new playground is up and running! Thank-you to our playground committee, parent council and countless volunteers who helped to make this project a reality for our students.
