Weekend skiing, basketball and sports in the gym. These routines have been reported on in the last few weeks and are all very familiar to the boys in residence. However, there have been some added twists this week. One is a shout out to TK and Phil for presenting at assembly, both from video feeds and live on stage. Another shout out is to Bastain, Justus and Alberto for their involvement with the ski team and helping to bring back many gold medals and trophies (pictured). Trung is also pictured for being the boarding helper with the canoe build this week. We also celebrated the February birthdays, only 2, but plenty of cake eaters did show up.
On Tuesday we welcomed back an Ashbury and Matthews House alumnus to assist with conversations about the world events related to Russia and Ukraine. We are fortunate that our students in Matthews from these two countries continue to work and communicate so well with each other.
On Wednesdays, when classes ended early for club time it was great to see a bus load of boarding students head out to their booster vaccines before heading home for the holidays. Later in residence, Ms. F helped organize teams who were part of the Trivia Night Challenge activity which was won by a Team from Matthews (Edward, Lucas and Andrew)!
