Last Friday, our Upper School students and staff headed out to Coronation Park for their Upper School Picnic. This highly anticipated annual event is held to welcome new students and give all Grade 7-12 students and staff a chance to hang out in an informal setting.
In the spirit of this event, the students were encouraged to wear their House colours for the many fun and exciting activities that our MAC Prefects planned. Students went above and beyond showing their school spirit and energy!
Our PYP House League Kick off was an amazing success!
Students in the Primary Years Programme (PK-6) participated in their house league kick-off events on Friday. Each grade completed carefully-designed challenges that tested their endurance, athleticism, teamwork, brainpower and more! Spirits were high as students won points for their house league teams. Our teams are Colborne Gators (green), Chisholm Cheetahs (yellow), Thomas Red Hawks (red) and Sumner Sharks(blue), and the names come from the prominent founders of Oakville, Ontario. Thank you to Mrs. Almeida and our hard-working MAC staff for creating, organizing and executing such a fun-filled afternoon!
The Masters Golf Tournament is famous for it's devious greens but Mr. Seidenberg's putting surfaces are at least as challenging! Our annual MacLachlan Masters Mini-Putt Championship held on Friday was the first of our popular Student-Staff events. Mac students and staff joined forces in house teams (Sumner, Chisholm, Colborne and Thomas) to compete for this year's championship.
The Sumner team of Ms. Leys, Carter, Ahmad and Greta finished first with a score of 79, which makes Ms. Leys a member of the championship team for the second year in a row. Mr. Piening and Mr. Seidenberg tied for the low score at 24, with Sam B. coming in first for the students with a score of 25. The three played off against each other in a four-hole stroke play format. Mr. Seidenberg came away with the lowest score, and Sam finished second. When participation points were factored in, the House League points went: Sumner 10, Chisholm and Colborne 9 and Thomas 7 points.
As always participation is a great way to finish the school week before heading off to enjoy the weekend. What a fantastic way to end our very first week of the 2018/2019 school year!
