NORCAN Ontario Visit Day 1 at pereyma

Team Pereyma has been eagerly anticipating and planning for our NORCAN friends to arrive. We were eager to re-connect with our Albertan and Norwegian colleagues, and our students were looking forward to connecting and learning with new classmates.

Our Norwegian and Albertan friends finally arrived in the 'Shwa! Patriot Pete was there to greet them, along with Pereyma's fantastic Leadership Team.

The yellow buses were a huge success. We had them ordered in especially for our Norwegian friends!
The entire Pereyma family extended a warm welcome to our NORCAN guests.

NORCAN friends were welcomed into Pereyma's Learning Commons where we shared some Canadian culture

Maple syrup, maple cookies and lots of Timbits!
Our honorary Pereyma students show off their new uniform.
Together, students and teachers learned about coding and how it can be used to support mathematical thinking...
...and we had fun exploring the capabilities of the Sphero robots!
All of this was in preparation for the Pereyma NORCAN Amazing Race!

The race began with an Arts task in the front foyer of the school.

From there, teams played Canada's game of basketball in a 25 point challenge

And applied mathematical thinking to finish off a truss in one of Pereyma's Technology classrooms.

Students used crackers to demonstrate the Pythagorean Theorem in the Foods classroom...

...And then met with our chaplain to investigate the work of Monsignor John Pereyma, in honour of whom our school is named. Amazing race participants also learned about another beloved former Pereyma chaplain, Father Don.

Pereyma's outstanding drama crew modelled and then judged a tableau created by Amazing Race contestants. Their tableau represented travellers rushing to make a plane connection.

The winners of the Pereyma NORCAN Amazing Race all recognized that their prize winnings could not compete with the wonderful experience of exploring Pereyma together with NORCAN friends.

We prepare to blast off on Day 2 and explore Rocketry STEAM tasks at Pereyma.
