12 Days of Christmas

It’s hard to get all students excited or involved in the same thing, but at Christmas time at QLS this task is a little bit easier to accomplish. Everyone tends to get a little happier, and a little warmer when we know that Christmas is right around the corner. The SRC plans the 12 Days of Christmas as a friendly competition and way to get students active and working together. Even the high school boys join in on the fun, which is a rare occurrence. Student’s show up to school looking like candy canes, elves, and many other things, as every day is a new dress up day. Every morning students pile into the gym to do a fitness activity as part of the 12 Days of Fitness. A fun game every other day makes students look forward to competing with their class against all the others in the school. This year the grade 10’s and 2’s came out on top by having the highest participation marks and winning the most games. The SRC is always finding new ways to keep everyone excited and involved, and the 12 Days of Christmas never fails to do so. The Christmas spirit is always in the air from the 1st day of December when decorations are set up, until the last day before the break. The 12 Days of Christmas quickly turns into the 12 Days of fun for all Kindergarten to Grade 12 students.

Mmm… Turkey

Christmas is all about caring and giving, and at Quill Lake School we try our best to incorporate these things into our Christmas activities. On the last day of school, we are blessed with a free turkey dinner for all staff and students that everyone loves. We know it’s the first of many mouthwatering meals we will receive over the Christmas holidays. Older students from grade 9-12 help the younger students dish up and walk them back to their classroom, making sure they don’t spill a drop. Community involvement is high on our priority list, and on this particular afternoon, volunteer students deliver prepackaged turkey dinners to elderly community members. Lists and boxes are split up and vehicles roam the town, excited to see the thankful faces of those receiving the meal. The full hearts of those giving and receiving is what makes Christmas such a wonderful time at Quill Lake School!
