School officially closed on Wednesday with mass and our annual awards assembly. During the assembly the band played, the choir sang, we celebrated our achievements and watched a slideshow of pictures from the year. Thank you to Mrs. McHugh for conducting the band, Mr. Graham for playing and preparing the entire school to sing and to Mr. Hancock for preparing the slideshow.

On Monday we had our end of year spelling bee, school wide breakfast and sports day. All students in grades 3 to 6 participated in the spelling bee. Students wore black and yellow. Congratulations to the class winners. Clara Ryan was the grade 3 winner, Alex Williams was the grade 4 winner, Hannah Sparkes was the grade 5 winner and Abigail Companion was the grade 6 winner.

We had a yummy final breakfast on Monday. Thank you to Mrs. King, Mrs. George and Mrs. McCarthy for cooking us all pancakes!

Our annual year end sports day was great. The theme was “splash”. Everyone had a great time playing sponge dodge ball, water balloon volleyball and many other wet outdoor activities. Thank you to Ms. Dutton, the student leadership council and the junior high class for organizing the events.

On Tuesday we celebrated Eco-Friendly Friends Day by learning about being more eco-friendly and having composting sessions for kindergarten to grade 6 with Nikki Abbott and Angela Vincent from the City of Corner Brook.

Also on Tuesday the grade 2 class sponsored a “hat and shades” day for the Children’s Wish Foundation and the primary classes enjoyed a teddy bear picnic.

On Thursday morning we had a breakfast for our school volunteers. Thanks for everything!
