International Leadership Treat a HUGE Success! NEW!
Last week at the Dutch Harbour Retreat Centre in Riondel, a group consisting of twelve French Immersion Leadership students, forty-four International Students, and Lara Von Maydell and Taavi Wickman-Ratte ('Friends of the International Students') came together as the goals were fun, friendship, and integration. Also joining the group was Sandy Prentice, Director of the SD8 International Program, Monica Nissan, Outdoor Education Expert, Marion Hunter, who an Odyssey of the Mind workshop, and the Karl Machado and Lindsay Robertson in support roles. The day and a half retreat included a hike along the beautiful pebble beach, outdoor art activities, and a session on wild edible mushrooms. The FI Leadership group organized a trust, cooperation, and confidence games session, too. The first day ended with a Canadian campfire and making s'mores. Around the campfire students from China, Korea, and South America performed a song or dance for the group. Thanks to everyone for making this an memorable time together!
Our Newest Additions
Below are the students (pointing to their home country) that will be joining the International Student Program at L.V. Rogers this fall. Welcome to the LVR community, everyone!
Working Together: French Immersion Leadership Group and International Students' Program
The first week of classes witnessed a remarkable sight: two distinctive groups of LVR students working, laughing, eating, and hanging out together. As part of the new initiative by the school to interconnect all LVR students from the various groups in cooperative, like-minded events, students from both French Immersion Leadership and International Students' groups spent the afternoon together. A definite requirement for any healthy school community. Both groups are off to Dutch Harbour later this week for a retreat where no doubt there will be more cooperation and laughter.
