Back at school

Red Hats went back to school yesterday.
Our outing for November was a tour of Valley Heights Secondary school.
The new science lab

the theatre arts class
public library and the cafeteria
The school built in 1971 is set in a lovely wooded ravine area with large windows looking out into the woods.There is a newly planted butter fly garden .
The theatre arts class sang Seasons of Love from Rent , also songs from Wicked.
Terrific singers!
The food arts class cooked and served the luncheon, quiche, cannelloni, salad, home baked rolls and apple crisp. The food arts class also prepare and sell appetizers and baked goods for Christmas holiday and cater to small groups. Several of our group purchased items to take home.
The teacher for this class is one of the most devoted enthusiastic teachers I have ever met.The Grade 12 students were our tour guides.
" Nice Hats Ladies" comment from a student passing in the hall, brought a laugh to us all.
With all the bad press, secondary schools ,rowdy students and teachers get, this school was impressive for its cleanliness, eager students and dedicated teachers.
Fun to go back to school just for a day.This was a walk down memory lane for all of us .
