In anticipation of Earth Day on Saturday, April 22nd, students spent Wednesday getting in touch with nature and being stewards of the environment. Once again, Mr. Kershawset the tone for the day by cycling to School from his home in Wolfville, a distance of 35 km; even the cold morning temperatures did not deter him. During Assembly, Rustam Kulizade, Matvey Semenenko and Michael Pitaev did an informative presentation on their Russian homeland, highlighting their culture, geography, politics and food. It fit our Earth Day theme as we were reminded that, although we are almost 7000 km from Moscow, we are all connected globally to our one Earth. Later, a delicious Russian lunch was arranged by the boys and enjoyed by all. We also had a special visitor in Assembly: Jayden Morrow (Grade 8) brought in her five-year-old pet ball python and taught us a great deal about this interesting species. Its docile temperament and beautiful markings made it a great show piece and was a topic of discussion throughout the day.
