Breslau, ON | Grades 9 - 12 | Shortlist
Our son completed his first year. So far he seems to enjoy going to school. He mostly enjoys the extra curricular activities and the many trips and outside class learning he has done. He has enjoyed meeting new people, but so far is not doing a lot of socializing outside of school hours and activities. Part of this is that the students come from various cities and so "hanging out" is not as easy. He is also so busy with extra curricular activities that this becomes most of the hanging out.
If I were to give a tour of the school, I would first take the visitors to the auditorium. It is essentially the lifeblood of the school. Our auditorium is where we meet for chapels, where most students eat lunch, and where many students are during spare. It also is where our mainstage drama productions happen, as well as our Christmas and Spring Concerts. Before our expansion, it used to be the school's gym. Besides classroom learning, I believe the auditorium is where students learn the most about each other, themselves, and their community. For example, I have become great friends with people and have interesting conversations with them because of our mutual spare periods we spend in the auditorium. It is a huge part of Woodland's community and an integral part of the school.
