The Grade 7 and 8 students at W. H. Day were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet renowned Canadian Author Ted Staunton when he visited our school on Wednesday, November 13th. Mr. Staunton is a popular and prolific writer, having written everything from picture books to novels for tween and teens. His most recent book is called ‘Jump Cut’, which is one of seven different novels woven together by one character and one event, and written by seven different Canadian authors as part of ‘Seven The Series’. The students were enthralled as they listened to Mr. Staunton’s engaging and insightful stories about the art of writing and the fact that many of a writer’s best and most interesting ideas come from real life. He even entertained the students with his banjo and was successful in getting our intermediate students to participate in a fun and silly song. This was truly an exciting event for our students and staff and one that we will not forget!
Tomorrow is picture retake day……it is also class picture day for the Kindergarten classes.

As part of our recognition of Remembrance Day, we were extremely pleased to have Captain Mark Timms come in to talk to the students about Canada’s armed forces. Captain Timms shared his own personal perspective and insight into the life of the military, and even brought in his uniform, helmet, and other gear from a recent tour in Afghanistan. The students were thrilled to hear him talk and share his experiences. Thank you so much to Captain Timms!
Hope to see you today at our Craft and Vendor event! It is from 11:00 to 3:00, and it would be a good time to start (or finish) your Christmas shopping. Hope to see you there!
