Friday morning, our foyer and gym were alive with the sounds of our intermediate students participating in a design challenge: Grade 7s were building bridges; Grade 8s were crafting boats out of cardboard. Our Lakers questioned, measured, fastened, checked, re-checked, problem-solved, and made us proud with their engagement and focus.
Later in the afternoon, our students proceeded to Forbert Pool, where they competed in the BPS boat races for the chance to qualify for the TLDSB cardboard boat races later in the season.
Many thanks to our intermediate teachers for arranging this experience. It was a cooperative effort and all contributions were appreciated! Check out the video or our hard-working Lakers, rising to the challenge.
