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!

Beauty and the Beast | 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 take place in February each year. Most of our students in GR 4, 5 and 6 came out to try for a role in Beauty and the Beast. 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.

Our cast is chosen, and we had a wonderful assembly, celebrating everyone and their roles at a special assembly last week. Congratulations to all our cast, and the supporting actors in their Houses!

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!

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.

Student Led Conferences

Last Friday was a special day in the school. Student Led Conferences offer a meaningful and powerful way for parents to learn about their children's progress. Beginning in JK students and parents sit together for up to an hour. During this time the students share their learning in all areas of the curriculum. This includes their regular studio work such as math, language and Units of Inquiry. They also demonstrate their learning in French, Music and Phys Ed during their conference.
This is a powerful way for parents to experience the progress their children make during the school year.
During the SLC day, our Grade Six class holds it's PYP Exhibition. This is always a wonderful days in the school, a true celebration of student learning.
