January 17, 2020  / 20 Tevet 5780

Shabbat Begins: 4:27 p.m.   Shabbat Ends: 5:39 p.m.   
Parsha: Shemot: Exodus 1:1 – 6:1

On Tuesday, our inspirational shinshinim, Omer and Camille, led three different classes (Grade 9, Grade 10, and a Grade 11/12 split) in the culinary art of making authentic shakshuka. Omer and Camille suggested it as a way to bring Israeli culture into our school in an experiential way. Turns out both our shinshinim have a flare for cooking! Students were excited and very focused as they cooked, while the smell of a delicious egg and tomato breakfast infused the hallways of our school.
Each grade approached the task differently. The Grade 9 students asked a lot of questions and were a bit unsure of themselves, while the Grade 10s followed their recipes to a tee. The Grade 11 and 12 students, having spent a bit more time in our Foods Room, experimented with flavours and ingredients with confidence. Throughout, our shinshinim wandered around the classroom giving their feedback and advice. All of the meals turned out wonderfully, and our students had a lot of fun!

Just outside our Art Room, these wonderfully creative plaster masks, created by our Art students, hang for all to admire. 

In this project, students were given the option to plaster their own faces or use models. They began by layering a base model with water and plaster strips. From that template, they were able to build up and design their own personal creations. Some students chose to make their "spirit animals", while others chose characters from movies or TV shows. Students were very pleased with the results and the individual spirit shown in each mask!

Join us for a workshop filled with practical strategies 
for helping your child cope with academic and social stress!

Shana Lund and Sarah Mellet, both psychiatric nurses and lecturers at 
Douglas College, receive rave reviews for their workshops. 

Parents of students in all grades are welcome to hear more 
in-depth from Sarah and Shana about how to help manage the 
problem-solving cycle at home.

Parents who attended their previous workshops say:

"Their practical tips and strategies are easy to implement – I left the workshop with a variety of tools to help me help my anxious child!"

"I understand now the role that I play in reinforcing the stress my child feels in certain situations. I will work on changing the messages I am giving."

Interested? RSVP to Lu Winters by Wednesday, January 22.
