  • The annual Grade 4 and 5 Sleepover was another huge success - 120 students, 30 teachers. Students circulated through 10 challenging and fun activities, consumed a large dinner prepared by our amazing kitchen staff and then, eventually, went to sleep in five classrooms. This fun tradition ensures that all Grade 4 students have slept away from home at least once prior to their two-night camp trip in December.
