The most wonderful time of the year has come to the EED LRC. Grade 1 and Kinder students enjoyed the activities prepared for them such as the Christmas trivia contest which was participated by the Grade 1 students. 10 lucky winners got some exciting prizes from the library. Also, a blacklight puppet show about the “First Christmas” was shown to kinder students which amazed them very much. Not only did they have fun with the activity, but also practiced the virtue of generosity by donating their books for the less fortunate!

Author of “The Missing Blanket”, Chino Sayuno, visited Xavier School and gave a talk to selected Grades 5 and 6 students. Members of Hoofprint, Film Club, Art Club, and boys who wanted to learn how to write stories of their own listened to Mr. Sayuno as he described what made him write his story.

The boys were truly inspired by his book, and some even got free copies of his book. Mr. Sayuno graciously signed their copies and was very willing to take photos with the boys.

Continue to inspire students Mr. Sayuno!

Book Trivia Contest!

The Book Trivia contest has been on going since November. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week, a new question is posted about books that we have in the GS LRC.

Upon answering the questions, the boys would drop their entry in the drop box and one boy from grades 5 and 6 would win a prize if they answered the question correctly.

Below are pictures of the past winners for the book trivia contest!

Keep on answering to win more prizes!

Supervised Lunch Activity: Snowflake Making

The boys read, “Jack Frost” by William Joyce and they were tasked to make different snowflakes that would show their appreciation for Jack Frost. In the story, Jack Frost promised to protect the children from the bad dreams, which is why, the students were really excited to make snowflakes for him.
