Special thanks to Madi from Mountain Gate Tea for a beautiful tea ceremony today, immersing our lower school students in the wonders of ancient China. The Pu-erh tea, carefully sourced from 1000-year-old trees, was a wonderful way to connect students to the same brew enjoyed by the Chinese for centuries.

Students in 5/6 science have spent a majority of class time over the last few weeks designing a year-long experiment and collecting data to help them answer the question: “What is the ecological impact that we have when we play on the playground”? To answer this question, students have been collecting data within the new playground extension, the old playground space on the hill, and the area outside the fence. Stay tuned later in the year as students reveal their findings!
