15 Dec High School – December 11-15, 2017
No Monday morning blues this week! The week began with student council providing hot chocolate with marshmallows and time for warm fellowship.
Later in the week, lunch time Christmas carols karaoke included the hilarious shenanigans of our grade 12 boys “singing” “The Carol of the Bells”, fans raising swaying hands and lights as Ryan MacLean sang “I am Dreaming of a White Christmas”, and the entire grade 10 class rendition of “Let It Go”.
Today (Dec. 15), a fantastic turkey lunch for the whole student body was sponsored and served by the Pastors of our churches!
And, Our grade 12 Students gave blood today (Dec. 15).
And this week also signalled the official start of our Secret Santa gift exchange. Each student drew the name of a fellow student and will give him/her small gifts, in secret, throughout the following week. Students are encouraged to not spend more than $15.00 for these gifts. On Thursday, Dec. 21, the BIG reveal will happen as each person receives the final gift from their secret Santa. Stockings were hung, and lockers were decorated in anticipation of receiving these gifts.
Merrymaking galore this week, as we anticipate celebrating the birth of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We love you, Jesus!
Our sports teams continue to compete, with our boys basketball team winning their first game, and our girls volleyball team currently in first place (3 wins, and 0 losses). Our swim team had a strong showing last week with several qualifying for SWOSSAA.
This morning, our Grade 12 College Math class led the chapel. In the midst of learning how to budget, the class was visited by representatives from MoveIn Canada, http://www.movein.to/, and learned to live radically by giving their financial giving first priority. “Whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40). Check out this book, which Mr. Kuikman recommends: Radical by David Platt.
