Last Day of Classes for 2012!

In the morning we gathered for our House League Assembly.

Mr. B and the students performed our new School Song.

Mr. Macapagal and Mr. Maz learned some new steps from our Gr. 8's

and were joined by the rest of the school.

In the afternoon the students and teachers took to the court for the annual Volleyball Challenge.

The fans were enthusiastic…

the games were close…

and in the end 'fun' was the winner!

SJV Shares for Christmas

Friday's assembly to share our donations with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was a great success.

The assembly started out with a Flash Mob of Christmas Carolers.

Our guests from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul were inspired by the generosity of the SJV School Community.
And the assembly finished up with some student presentations and some festive dancing to Christmas music.

Mad Science Visits SJV

Super Justin from Mad Science amazed and educated our Grade 1-5 students and turned our gym into a giant science lab.  The students raced tornadoes, experienced thunder, lightning and a forest fire along with other exciting scientific phenomena.  Don't be surprised if your child asks you to sign them up for the after school program that takes place in the New Year.
