June Update

This has been a great year, and we've made it to the best month of all - June! It's a glorious time at school; the satisfaction of  another splendid year well lived, looking forward to the summer, and saying goodbye to our wonderful graduates as we send them off to their new schools. We wish them every success.
Last week I was at Brock Youth University with our graduating class, our annual Grad trip to science camp. We had a blast, staying in the dorm and participating in the great program offered by Brock. Once again, our students demonstrated their fun-loving, curious enthusiasm for everything they encountered.
Yesterday our SK class presented How does Your Garden Grow, and today we are busy preparing the Art Show for the SPA Year End Celebration next week. As always, our students have shown great creativity, commitment and individuality in their work, as you will see at the Art Show. The SPA party on Monday evening is just one of the varied activities interspersed throughout the year that lend some variety to create balance and enliven the steady progression of learning. The Class Art Auction will be amazing. Be sure to join us!

Our last two weeks will be filled with more great activities and I know we will enjoy every one of them. See you at the SPA Year End Celebration!

Brock Youth University

Each year our Grad Trip goes to Brock Youth University for a science camp and university experience. We had a wonderful time, dissecting owl pellets, making DNA and creating robotic cars. Highlights were the Dance and Campfire. What a great experience for our Graduates!

The Lion King | Auditions

The Annual SBS Musical is such an integral part of the school year and for our students it begins with auditions. Auditions for the show took place in February and most of our students in GR 4, 5 and 6 came out to try for a role in The Lion King. After several callbacks and much deliberation parts were awarded based on both acting and singing performances in the auditions. We are proud of all our students for coming out and giving it their best.

PYP Exhibition

Throughout the Winter Term our Grade Six students work on their PYP Exhibition. The Exhibition allows our senior students to apply their skills and learning from their years in the IB Primary Years Program to this project, and demonstrate their learning to our school community.

Students begin by choosing a topic under the transdisciplinary theme, Sharing the Planet. This year they chose water issues for their inquiry. In groups they selected an area of water use and spent 7 weeks learning, researching, exploring, preparing their presentations and practising for the big day.

On Student Led Conference Day the Grade Six class presented their research and learning to the entire school. We also had visits students from 2 other local IB schools. It was a tremendous experience and we are so proud of our students. Well done Grade Six!

Avenue Road Art School Workshop

The Avenue Road Arts School came to SBS for two whole days to engage our students from GR 1 - 6 in workshops. The goal was to create multi media scenes for our musical, The Lion King. Students created their interpretation of the jungle, the grassland, Pride Rock and more.

Students painted, made collages, used modelling clay and plasticene to make wonderful evocative pictures for our show. It was an amazing day. Thanks to our instructors for a fabulous experience for our students.

SBS at the Symphony

As part of our music curriculum, our students in GR 4, 5 and 6 attended the Toronto Symphony Youth Concert. Our students enjoyed listening to the movie music particularly with our focus on John Williams this month. We also had an opportunity to see a Canadian premiere of an animated short with live music. What a thrill!

A big thank you to the SPA for supporting SBS at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and to our parent volunteers for joining us.
