2016 Spartan Challege

The Spartan Challenge is an annual transition to high school event in partnership with CDSBEO.

Students in our Grade 8 family of schools participated in a series of workshops on Wednesday December 14th, with secondary teachers in the areas of Physical Education, Music, Drama, Construction Technology, Computers, Science and Hospitality. Students then competed in a build challenge with a team from their home school that incorporated design, math and science using only straws and tape.

This was a great opportunity for Grade 8 students to get comfortable with the high school environment and meet new friends and future teachers.
