Today was a wonderful day in our learning community. Our students rotated through a number of engineering challenges today, each with a focus on solving a problem. Students worked in family groups from Kindergarten through Grade 6 so it was an amazing opportunity for our students to create new friendships with students in other grades and in the process build our family at Belfast. Our older students were incredible leaders and mentors for our wee ones and they found out that our youngest students are so creative! In many cases the solutions to the challenges came from ideas our kinders came up with! I'd like to thank Mr. Symington for his leadership and organization in pulling the format of today together. I am also (as always!) so grateful to our incredible staff for pulling together to put it all together. Thanks also to Ms. El-Guebaly who made sure that we all got a movement break during the day by hosting Just Dance Jam Sessions in the gym!
Staff and student feedback after this day have been enormously positive! We will definitely be seing more #belfastydays in our future!
