Grade 7

Welcome to the Grade 7 Blog!

Hello and welcome to the Grade 7 Blog!

My name is Robert Kirkham, and likely your son/daughter has told you about a tall red-haired man who is their new teacher. Well, the rumours are absolutely true! I am thrilled to be a part of the St. Paul community and I look forward to a wonderful year with your children!

We will meet one another formally at Meet the Teacher night on September 19th. In the meantime, though, next week is quickly approaching in which the students will have their much-looked-forward-to Outdoor Education trip to Camp Elphinstone in beautiful Gibsons, BC!

Mr. Kelly has done a fantastic job leading the way with communicating with you regarding camp. Please refer to the package of forms that was sent home on Tuesday with regards to what the students need to bring, and what time to be there on Tuesday morning. Another post will be made on Friday with further reminders.

It is very important that students bring in their forms and money for camp as soon as possible.

Items of note for camp:

1. Permission form

2. Cheque for $85 made out to St. Paul Elementary School.

3. Medical form (if any medical needs/medication are necessary)

Should you have any further questions about camp or anything, please do not hesitate to email me at



  • Students have PE on Monday, Tuesday and Fridays. However, please note that TOMORROW, Thursday September 7th, there will be PE during the Music time slot in the afternoon. Also, this coming Monday, September 11th, there will be no PE as Outdoor Ed will provide more than enough physical activity.
  • Please send gym shoes in a gym bag to keep in the locker for the school year. Students are expected to wear their gym strip under their uniform on PE days.

Students have French on Tuesday and Thursdays.

Students have Music on Thursdays.

Please refer to the attached weekly schedule for Gr. 7 for what is going on academically in the class throughout the week. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.



  • It is that time of year for our Walkathon assembly! It will take place this Friday, September 8th at 9am in the school gym and everyone is welcome to attend. On this day, the Grade 7’s will also receive their Grad Hoodies – yay!


Big birthday wishes this week to Victoria Leung (September 9th)!

Have a wonderfull week and enjoy the smoke – oops – I mean sun!

Mr. Kirkham
