Do not ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come ALIVE and go do it!
Last week’s inaugural Breakout Week in the Middle and Senior Schools was a resounding, innovative success. Thirteen different activities were enjoyed by the students ranging from entire grades connecting and building relationships outdoors in different summer settings, to paddling canoes in our wonderful Canadian wilderness, to making sandwiches for the homeless and entertaining seniors, to calculating their terminal velocity before taking flight, to building a log shelter leanto in our very own CDS wilderness. Not to mention our GYs who headed east and west to explore future university options.
Students and faculty returned glowing with enthusiasm about the new relationships they had built, the challenges they had conquered, the knowledge and inspiration they had garnered and the fun they had along the journey. This was experiential learning at its very best, and it was clear that each and everyone of us had come a little more ALIVE.
