Grade 5

Week of November 18th – 22nd

Hello Grade 5 Families!

We had a short but exciting week; with our boys playing in their playoff tournament and going on our field trip to watch the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra! Next week, we look forward to a Dress Down Day, School Mass and a Pro-D Day!

Our featured image this week is our field trip the VSO at the Orpheum. We’re incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to see the orchestra and be exposed to different types of instruments – it was an awesome show! Special thanks to our music teacher, Ms. Rumpel for organizing the trip, our parents who were able to help chaperone and Mrs. Chiu for taking our photo!
