We are finally finished presenting all our Treaty Ed projects in class!! The videos can be found on our Treaty Ed page on this blog. The assessment sheets will be sent home on Monday to be signed.
Today we celebrated Appreciate a Dragon Day. Everyone did a short oral presentation on their favourite dragon.
We were truly inspired by Mrs. Tenford’s presentation about her visit to Pimbiniet, Kenya. Last year, Palliser Heights raised over $10,000 to build a one room school-house in this community, to add to their current school complex. Now they have been able to reduce their class size to just 57 students per classroom! Over the summer Mrs. Tenford helped build the school, so she was able to share lots of pictures about what life is like in Pimbiniet.
This year Palliser Heights is hoping to raise $5,000 to build a well in the community. Currently the only drinking water is at the school, which is at the top of a mountain. When students are finished their school day, their chore is to carry their family’s drinking water home.
Donations are due by January 28th. Please help us build this well!
