Sooke students write about what is happening at their school

On April 25th we had a talent show; there were singers, skateboarders, dancers, musicians, and scooter performances!

Every Friday we have a discovery afternoon. There is sewing, beach exploring, jewelry making, cooking, computer graphics, and pottery! It is lots of FUN!

The Grade 5’s are going to Camp Thunder bird in June. We get to do archery, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and rock-climbing!

At recess and lunch we all play tag, soccer, basketball, football and tether ball. We have a new playhouse for the primary kids.

The Grade 5’s started a newspaper club. We write about sports and everything important that goes on in our school.

We have a cross country team and we meet for runs once in a while.

Teachers are very nice and fun. The principal and vice principal are nice as well. So is the secretary.

We always have lots of fun here at John Muir Elementary!
