Valentine’s Day at Journey Middle School

February has been a busy month at Journey with a visit from the legion and Sooke Seahawks football club

By Rachel and Emma Houchin, Mindalynn Frelick and Noella Vincent

Thank you to Royal Canadian Legion member Ron Larsen who presented certificates and cash awards at our recent Journey school assembly.

He explained that more than 140 entries were sent in to commemorate Remembrance Day and that they were difficult to judge.

He congratulated and thanked all who entered.

A few proud teachers pointed out that most of the winners were from our very own Dragon’s Den Creative Writing Club. Thank you to the Legion for their time and effort.

We also have an ongoing event called “spaghetti in a big red cup” for raising money for a school trip to Japan that is happening later this year.

Thank you to Scott and Nathan from the Sooke Seahawks for coming to our assembly last week. Lots of interest in joining the football team and many footballs and T-shirts were given away and were much appreciated.

Love is floating in the air at Journey this month. Some classes and the school office have decorated their classroom to make it look special.

Creative writing club students have been working diligently writing Valentine’s Day poems. Here is a poem one of the students penned in the Creative Writing Club we’d like to share with your readers.

Valentine’s Love

People everywhere

Sense love in the air.

People on benches

Or under pretty branches

On this day we share

With people for whom we care

Chocolate and candy

Are on sale for a price that’s dandy.

And finally people will see,

How sweet love can be.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
