MPCS Climbing Team

Video Posted on

Yesterday wrapped up our last of 8 climbing session at the CORE in Whistler. With the addition of our schools new goPro cameras we decided to shoot some footage of our climbing fun to share with everyone.

With such great success, we will continue with the climbing team next September. Stay tuned.

From play, to passion, to purpose.

Garden Boxes

Video Posted on

Mr. Smith and his class built 4 garden boxes this past month, and have planted flowers and veggies. It was a great learning opportunity for all students, and they showed great ownership in the project. This video was created by two up-in-coming movie producers in Mr. Smith’s class, as a way to blog the experience.

Great Job guys.

Mrs. Williams Chick Hatching Webcam

Posted on Updated on

We have set up a webcam so students can see the chicks hatch in Mrs. Williams class (they were due to hatch on Monday).  It looks like the incubator was a little warm as they have started to hatch a day early.  Please check out the link below.

It seems to be working best on internet explorer.  You will need to have Java installed (or activeX plug-in). If it is not working for you feel free to call me at the office on Monday, and I can walk you through the set up.

ArtWALK 2014

Video Posted on Updated on

Late April/Early May we spent 2 weeks with artist Jennifer Zizman exploring visual art and the acrylic medium. Students explored the concept of a self-image. They discussed concepts of inner wealth, and how they can visually represent the image of who they are as a person.

Our Grade 7 students spent the two weeks working collaboratively on building a similar concept for our school community. Instead of using a 2D canvas, our grade 7 teams painted on real objects that also signify our school community (athletic and artistic).
