Spring News from the Head of School

April is going to be a very busy month at Christ Church Cathedral School. We are kicking off a brand new sailing club, restarting our squash club, creating wonderful art for the Annual CCCS Art Show, practicing for the Choral and Speech Festivals, all while preparing for Easter.

Our student council, the outreach club, the We Day class (the grade eights are part of the ‘Free the Children’ organization) and other student leadership teams are also very busy with preparations for the Middle School Spring Dance, food drives, and the A-1 Garage Sale.

Student-Led-Conferences also take place this month. This is your opportunity to learn first-hand what your children are up to during the school day. Our kindergarten to grade five students will take the lead to show you examples of their learning, while the Middle School students will be hosting a new format for students and parents we call a Celebration of Learning.

You are encouraged to attend a self-guided session to view various learning artifacts displayed in the Middle School classrooms.

As well, there will be a presentation on Digital Citizenship for Parents by David Shortreed of SD61. Lux Mundi will be available during the afternoon for everyone’s convenience.

Oh, and I almost forgot to bring this to your attention: Do you know the type of people that get upearly in the morning, before everyone else, to hit the gym or run outside for miles? What drives them? Health? Competition? Insomnia? The need to be the best they can be? Well those people are among us right now! Did you know that more than 20 CCCS students, along with parents and CCCS staff, are meeting twice a week at the Oak Bay High School running track at 7am in preparation for our upcoming track and field season? If you missed the memo and want to join an energetic group of fitness enthusiasts, grab a coffee or a juice, slip on your runners and track suit, and meet them at the Oak Bay High track on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 am.

If Garage “Sale-ing” is more your speed, don’t miss the CCCS Garage Sale on Saturday, April 5! ~ Stuart Hall
