In addition to our dual curriculum, we offer a vibrant school life with opportunities for extracurricular activities and various special events throughout the year for Jewish and other civic holidays. Highlights include:
Jewish Holidays: Special activities around Rosh Hashanah include apple picking and a “Shofar Factory” workshop, followed by building a sukkah on the school grounds. Chanukah brings the annual family luncheon where the school community gathers for a delicious meal, games, menorah contest and student performances. This is followed by the Purim student carnival, and for Pesach, students have a chance to knead, roll and bake their very own matzot.
Winter Fun: Under the supervision of teaching staff, students help build an on-site ice rink, which provides a great opportunity to brush up their skating skills during recess and gym. For the annual “Winter Fun Day”, students take a trip to enjoy tobogganing and snow tubing. Each January and February, Winter Clubs offer many extra-curricular activities including: woodworking, painting, knitting, hockey, and baking.
Lag Ba’omer Sports Day: The entire school community spends the day at local community centre for a fun-filled day of competition and excitement. With the older students providing leadership to their teams, the children play a number of sports, which culminates in a much-anticipated game of “Capture the Flag”.
All trips and activities throughout the school year are made possible through the efforts of our wonderful staff and dedicated volunteers. If you would like to get involved or have suggestions for activities we would love to hear from you!
