    Our year end MacLachlan Olympics enjoyed a beautiful day as Lower School students ran, jumped and scored points for their House League team. Sumner, Chisholm, Thomas and Colbourne teams were out in their colours cheering on their house mates as they strove to win the MacLachlan Cup and the honour of being House League champions for 2017/18. Thanks to all of the staff and especially Ms. K Harrison for making this year's Mac Olympics such a successful day!

  • Everyone Wins at Our Grade 6 Coin Carnival

    JFerguson
    Today we had the 2018 Wee Braveheart Foundation Coin Carnival. Wee Braveheart is a charitable foundation that makes care packages for people that are undergoing hospital treatments. The Coin Carnival was created for us to raise money for their foundation. For the first period, we set up our carnival games and then for the second period the kindergarteners came to play our games of chance. After that, our Lower School student came in during morning recess and lunch recess to play our 50-50% chance games. Because we finished our math unit on probabilities, we were successful in making the games and ensuring that they were 100% fair. Something we should work on is estimating the amount of students coming to our Coin Carnival, because some of us did not have enough prizes. We successfully raised $271.71 which we thought was pretty amazing!! The class with the most tickets was Ms.Long’s Grade 5 class.   by Hong, Evan D, Greta, Alex and Alyssa

  • Outdoor Education at Mansfield: The Grade 6 Trip

    JFerguson
    The Mansfield Outdoor Centre offers you the ‘full camping experience’.  There is over 300 acres of beautiful Canadian wilderness on the property. On our adventure to Camp Mansfield, we did many entertaining things including: hiking, orienteering, playing a survival game, sleeping over in our tents, making a fire, cooking on a live fire, and more. 

    When we arrived we got into our tent groups and set up our tents. We made sure to use all of the tips Mrs. Harrison taught the week before in gym class. Later, we went to the Main Lobby and it was time to play a survival game in the forest….a large forest. There were herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, poachers, hunters, natural disasters, and disease in the game.  We were each assigned a role.  We drew the role of a herbivore and a deer. We each got a piece a paper with squares and counters. The squares each had a station, which was either a food or water station. The counters represented each of your lives. The object of the game was to find the water or food station and get a symbol stamp on the paper, while not getting killed by the other creatures or elements.
    After breakfast on the following day, it was time for another fun game. We did orienteering. They gave us a map which showed 4 different spots in the area to find. When we completed the activity we had lunch and unfortunately it was time to depart Camp Mansfield and head back to school. Overall, we had a fun time with everything and our class learned a lot. I wish we could do it again!      By: Sofia and Jack Gr.6

  • Grade 7 and 8 Visit Quebec City

    JFerguson
    Last week, the Grade 7 and 8 classes went on their year end adventure to Quebec City. Upon arriving in Quebec City, students began their military training accompanied by British Officers at the Martello Towers where they learned about the living conditions of the soldiers and 1812 military lifestyle. The activities for the next day included taking in the breathtaking scenery at Canyon Sainte-Anne and the Parc de la Chute Montmorency, learning about the living conditions of soldiers during the 1759 battle on the Plains of Abraham under the command of generals Wolfe and Montcalm, and then finishing the day with a Disco cruise on board the Louis-Jolliet enjoying a view of Quebec City from the St. Lawrence River. After a guided tour of the Citadelle the next morning, the group visited the Observatoire de la Capitale and saw an impressive view of the city from 750 m above sea level, before spending time in historic Old Quebec. In the afternoon, Quebec’s military past was explained through an impressive model of the city at the Musee du Fort. The last evening was spent enjoying lively entertainment and traditional Québécois cuisine at the Chemin du Roy sugar shack.

  • Our Annual Junior Ambassador Luncheon

    JFerguson
    MacLachlan College thanked the Jr. Ambassadors by treating them to a year-end luncheon at the Mandarin Restaurant. We showed our appreciation for the time and energy that they put forth this year helping out in and around the school. The ambassadors have developed their leadership skills during our meetings and they have been especially a great help out on the playground and during our assemblies. Many of them have also given up their free time outside of school hours to help out with various special events being held at the school. This year's Jr. Ambassadors were: Sofia, Faazil, Saashi, Rehat, Philip, Naomi, Neha and Alp.
