Our Grade 6 Ultimate team went to Pacific Academy for the Ultimate Tournament on June 5th. They won half of their games against some tough and tall opposition, taking back 6th place. The games they lost, they lost by only 1 point, although they sometimes won a game 11-3 points. Most importantly, they played with class, energy, and good sportsmanship. Way to go!!

For the sixth consecutive year, a group of Grade 8 students had the chance to participate in the Survivor Exploratory. This Exploratory has two primary focuses: to teach students basic camping skills in order to experience God’s Creation, and to unplug from digital technology in order to hear God’s voice through the practice of spiritual disciplines. We spent several Exploratory sessions learning about wilderness safety, how to properly pack a bag, and practicing times of solitude and silence with God.
The Exploratory culminated in an overnight trip to Joffre Lakes provincial park. Students overcame the challenge of hauling a heavy backpack on a steep hike, while snowflakes and hail fell! It was a wonderful chance to experience the beauty of God’s Creation and to take time to express gratitude for all he has given us. It is our hope that our students will apply what they have learned at home, and make more space for God in their lives.
