École Poirier news:

École Poirier has a great way of teaching children everything they need to know.

Every student has a fantastic teacher and a great education. The school brings many events and activities for every single student. For example, we have had Anne Glover come and tell stories with string, and we had Johanna come from Saltspring Island teach us how to write graphic novels.  We also had literacy week at the end of January.  The famous author from Sooke, Julie Lawson, came and told us about her books. We also had lots of book draws, and we read a lot that week.

We have lots of sports that many people participate in like four corners, wall ball, basketball, floor hockey, road hockey, and volleyball.

There are even many clubs that are available and fun for everyone such as choir, chess club and book club.

Grade 5 students like to step up to join Poirier in helping too.  We are a group of leaders who help kids get in the Poirier spirit and join in. Many Grade 5 students have signed up for jobs like office monitoring, tea cart, lunch monitoring, and assembly set-up crew.  Every day, there are people working hard, making new friends, and joining in.

École Poirier is a great place to learn!

Ici à Poirier

Ici à Poirier, on fait des choses très excitantes!  En janvier, on a fait de la gymnastique pendant quatre semaines. C`était très amusant!  Pendant le dîner, chaque mercredi, les filles jouent au basketball dans le gymnase. À la fin du mois de janvier, on avait la semaine de l`alphabétisation! On a fait un projet où on a dessiné nous-mêmes, et puis nous avons écrit à propos de notre livre préféré. Au mois de février, une femme qui s’appelle Anne Glover est arrivée à l`école et elle nous a raconté une histoire à propos de sa jeunesse avec de la ficelle. C`était très drôle!  Pour les petits, une femme de ‘Mad Science’ est venue à l`école et elle a fait une présentation que je n’ai pas vu parce que je suis en cinquième année. Mon activité préférée en cinquième année était le projet de bandes dessinées avec une artiste de l’ile de Saltspring qui s’appelle Johanna. Selon-moi, c`était la meilleure activité qu’on a fait cette année.

Ça c`est ce qui est arrivé à l’école Poirier.  J’adore l’école Poirier!
