Junior School Virtues in Practice

by Sara Ritchie, Junior School Learning Resource Teacher
Students in Grades 4 and 5 each spent one day at Camp Pringle on beautiful Shawnigan Lake. With goals of inclusiveness and encouragement, students tried new activities and gained a greater appreciation for the outdoors. It was a very successful experience for everyone involved.

I learned that I can tightrope walk. It was very hard yet exiting and I really enjoyed it. I also learned that I got over my fear of heights. Two things I learned about my group were that Jamie may be small but she’s also very tough. I also learned that everybody struggled balancing on the tightrope.

Two virtues I demonstrated were kindness because I helped people undo their harness at rock climbing and friendliness when we helped people at the mine field game. Two ways I have changed now is because I have gotten over my fear of heights and because I have gotten better at archery. Why I have changed is because I have gone to Camp Pringle.

Yesterday I went to Camp Pringle. What I learned was that I have very good balance because you need very good balance to tightrope walk. It was fun! I also learned that I could climb to the top of the climbing wall. The two things I learned about my group is that Ms. Ritchie liked archery and also that Arjun is very good at tightrope walking.

Two virtues I demonstrated were kindness and modesty. Two ways I have changed was I did not know that I could tightrope walk and I did not know that my leg would not become sore.
