Student Activities

Choir:

The Connaught Heights Choir is an energetic,musical, and creative group of students who join together to share in singing songs of different genres during the Thursday noon hour. The Choir has been led by Ms. Milner with Mrs. Wong assisting this year. In our rehearsals this Fall 2016, we focused on learning the song, ”In Flander’s Fields,” and respectfully paid tribute by singing it at our school Remembrance Day Ceremony. For the New Year, we have discussed sharing our music in our community as well as participating in a Choir Festival. The sound of music will continue to resonate from Connaught Heights in 2017.

Student Council:

Here at Connaught Heights Elementary School, our Student Council works together towards our goal of creating a clean, helpful, kind, and encouraging school and community. Student Council is about allowing the Grade 5’s an opportunity to become leaders for the school by organizing fundraisers and assemblies, participating in school wide events, and setting a good example for the entire school community. Our recent achievements have been organizing and helping two great causes: Halloween for Hunger and the Remembrance Day Assembly. For Halloween for Hunger, we collected non-perishable food items and donated them to the Purpose Society for people in need. For the Remembrance Day Assembly, we had the opportunity to be a MC and help set up the gym. Our next initiative is doing a fundraiser for the SPCA, groups who help save and care for neglected and abused animals that need love and care, and also PADS, a group that raises and trains dogs to help people with disabilities. In the future, we hope to help out with any natural disasters in the world, organize bake sales, promote staying healthy, encourage anti-bullying, and raise more money for the school and other charities.
