February was a beautiful month that came with some of the coldest temperatures. Among the snow and freezing wind, students at Canada Royal Arts High School participated in a variety of activities. The Activities of the Month ranged from relaxing yoga to active team-building games. Check out what our students have been doing for February!
Activities of the Month for February
- Olympic Experience at the Olympic Oval
The Olympic Experience is an interactive museum. Participants engage in variety of stimulated sports that mimic the winter Olympics. As a result, you can ride a bobsled through a course, become a professional race-car driver, or test your reaction time with your friends.
- Playing Pool and Arcade Games at E-Spot Billiards
E-Spot has been part of Richmond Arcade and Game culture for a long time. Players can enjoy a wide range of games due to E-Spots recent upgrade. At E-Spot you can play pool, arcade games, and more.
- Team Building Games – Tower Challenge
Team Building games are a great way to strengthen your relationships with your classmates and friends. Consequently, we had our students participate in the Tower Challenge. The goal was to create the tallest, free-standing tower in 20 minutes. It was great to see many students working together and solving problems. Most noteworthy was the interactions students had with one another.
- Yoga with Gina
One of our wonderful teachers, Gina, taught Ashtanga Yoga to our students. Due to Gina’s expertise, students spent one hour practicing a variety of stretches and calming exercises. As a result, they had a much needed break from their hectic school life. Gina led the students through a series of movements that strengthened their muscles.
- Decorating t-shirts for Pink T-Shirt Day
Pink T-Shirt Day happens every year on February 28th. This day is meant to bring awareness to the negative side affects that come with bullying. Especially relevant is how Pink T-Shirt Day started. Pink T-Shirt Day started in 2007, after a fellow student was bullied for wearing a pink t-shirt school.
