GR 2 | Scientists in the School

Posted on October 13

For their Unit of Inquiry about Structures, 'Scientists in the School' spent a day with our GR 2 class learning about bridges, and how to make them strong so they can carry a load.

Parents joined the class to help with the challenges of creating a bridge that a car could cross and that could carry the weight of 2 heavy books. Testing the bridges was the best part!

Founders Day 2017

Posted on September 27

Each September SBs celebrates Founders Day, right after our Terry Fox run. A special assembly with a short presentation of our School's history and a BBQ lunch on the playground make for a great way to honour our unique past and exciting future.

This year we celebrated our 65 years of living and learning at Sunnybrook. It was a great day, our students and faculty had lots of fun, parents joined us for lunch and we had a great time.

Terry Fox Run

Posted on September 26

Each year SBS participates in the Canadian tradition of the Terry Fox Run to support Cancer Research. Mount Pleasant Cemetary is very generous inhosting Sunnybrook for our run. Students walk to the site, and as soon as everyone has arrived, the run begins. We structure the run in our Houses, each group starting as they are ready.

Students from GR 1 - 6 ran with commitment and enthusiasm, in spite of the heat. Their effort was exepmplary and we were very proud of them all.

JK and SK participate as well, running on Merton St., with the help of parents and teachers, so that they can learn the value of the run, and the satisfaction of participating in this community event.

Our thanks to all parents and teachers for making the run a success again in 2017!

First GR 1 Field Trip

Posted on September 21

Gr 1 is in the midst of their Names Unit. They took a walk to visit the two small parks on Merton St and learn about how they got their names. Pottery Playground and the Mission Ground are landmarks on Merton St, with an interesting history, including a long gone pottery factory and a little old Church that once served and an orphanage for war orphans. They also learned how Sunnybrook School got its name.

For many families the most important keepsake of the school year is the school photo. And big smiles are what make them so special. As you can see, there were some very big smiles this year!

Assemblies

Our First assemblies bring the school together to start the year with a sense of purpose and togetherness. Laughter is an important part of many assemblies, together with learning, discussions of whole school topics and reports on school activities and news.

The First Day of School 2017

Posted on September 8

Shoes polished, hair freshly trimmed, uniforms looking crisp and fresh - the year began with happy students coming back to enjoy another year at SBS. Our new kindergarten students were thrilled with the good weather, the playground, and the whole experience of starting school. The rest of us just enjoyed being back. It was a splendid day, all around!

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!
