What does a week at DWA look like? It's busy both in the classroom and outside of it.
Friday, Sept. 28 Citizenship Ceremony at Harry Hays Building. Alex, one of our students, and his family became Canadian citizens! It was an amazing experience for our Gr. 5, 6, and 7 students to witness and directly related to their Social Studies units.
Friday was also Orange Shirt Day. It was a sea of orange at DWA culminating a week of learning and activities about residential schools.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Oct. 1-3 Camp Kindle Outdoor Adventure. The Gr. 6 - 9 students were off to their annual outdoor adventure made even more adventurous this year by the surprise snowfall. The High Ropes Course, Shelter Building, and Archery are just some of the amazing experiences that build personal confidence and a strong cohesive junior high group.
Thursday, Oct. 4 Bob Snyder, Calgary Roughnecks player as guest instructor. Bob is an expert at Lacrosse, his chosen sport, so he is our expert instructor when it comes to learning lacrosse for the Gr. 4 - 6 Sports Performance option. Whenever possible, our expert teachers at DWA find other experts to share their knowledge and skills with our students.
Does this happen every week? Yes. At DWA, it's not unusual to find expert lecturers, interesting field trips or strong school spirit evident every week of the year.
