Saseenos students kept busy touring

Sooke students take in a lot of end-of-year activities

Kids at Saseenos School have been having a lot of fun in the past few months.

On May 14, the intermediate students went by bus to the Royal B.C. Museum.  The Grade 4/5 class also had a ghost tour around Victoria and learned a lot of history of Victoria. They also saw Flight of the Butterflies at the IMAX.

The Grade 3/4 class had a garage sale in their class to make money for the classroom and they made over $200. They are going to donate some to a local charity.

On May 23, the Grade 5 students went to Journey middle school for a transition visit. While they were there, half of the kids went outside to play and the other half did a scavenger hunt inside Journey and then they switched.

On May 24, our school had our Spring Carnival. Here is a list of some of our fun stations we had at our carnival: toilet paper toss, penny drop game, fortune telling booth, cupcake walk, karaoke, raffle, Barbie dunk tank, and a bouncy castle.

On June 4, the Grade 5 students had their farewell field trip at Fort Rodd Hill. They learned about the history of the Fisgard lighthouse and the war equipment at the fort. They also did a scavenger hunt all around the fort. While the Grade 5 students were on their field trip, the Grade 3 and 4 students had a tent day.  They set up tents on the back field and had a water fight.

Last week, Saseenos students went to the track and field meets at Belmont. Our students participated in shot put, long jump, 100m dash and 4x100m relay.
