On Wednesday April 20th, 15 students from Cycle 3 took part in the annual Gerald McShane Ball Hockey Challenge. The day was quite a success. Team Dante had to overcome some adversity in our first two games, including some questionable calls by the officials in the first game as well as a hard fought 2-1 loss to the eventual champs from Willingdon in game two. Students did an amazing job of staying composed and representing Dante with class despite these frustrations, many of which were out of their control. They rebounded nicely winning the remaining games against good competition for a strong third place finish. Fun was had, and valuable lessons were learned by all, WAY TO GO DANTE!!

Cet organisme, les Petits Frères, accueille et accompagne les personnes seules du grand âge, afin de contrer leur isolement, en créant autour d'elles une famille engagée et fidèle jusqu'à la fin de leur vie. Les enfants avaient comme projet de travailler sur les valeurs tel que : le partage, la gentillesse, l’amitié etc. Pour rendre plus joyeux le noël de certaines personnes dans la communauté, nous avons décidé de fabriquer des calendriers, avec un message d’amour pour des membres de cet organisme. Nous avons remis à mesdames Rita et Céline, des calendriers pour les vieux amis ainsi que quelques chansons interprétées par les classes de 3 ième et une plante de noël pour égayer sa maison. En résumé, ce fût un moment magique pour les enfants, les professeurs et ces dames.

Political Debate

In October, the students in class 5S6 prepared and were engaged in political campaign debates. They successfully presented arguments in terms of the pros and cons of the issues in the opposing political group to a jury. Furthermore, the candidates used strategies to quickly respond to the statements given by the opposing party. Below you see pictures from the Conservative, Liberal, Bloc Quebecois and NDP parties.

Halloween Fun

Our Halloween day was a spooky spectacular event! Students visited a beautiful pumpkin patch and selected a pumpkin of their choice. They then decorated their pumpkins and our parent volunteers were dressed up for the occasion as they assisted the students during their visit. A peanut free goody bag was given to each student. Such a day wouldn’t have been possible without the involvement of our parent volunteers.
