Hearts are bigger than Wallets.

I am EXTREMELY proud to say that I am the Principal of Seba Beach school. I am always proud of my school and my students, however recently the students and staff at Seba Beach school proved that anyone can make a difference and that their hearts are just as big as others.

Why am I writing this, you may ask, so I will tell you. Over the past couple of weeks the students of Seba Beach took on a “stuff a bus challenge” that was presented By Spruce Grove’s Save-On Foods and Royal Lepage Westgate. The challenge was to collect the most amount of food donations for the food bank. The winner would be based on a Per capita basis, which ensured a level playing field for all participants. I am elated to report that Seba Beach school was able to collect 8 items per capita, which translates to 800+ items.

As Mr. Wilhauk has stated, one of the “initiative is developing the younger generations sense of community” For more on the Challenge and a future goals please visit the Stony Plain Reporter. The students were extremely excited when they were informed yesterday and met with Trevor Wilhauk from Royal Lepage. The students, staff and community are looking forward to their BBQ in the Spring/Summer, however they are more excited that they have the bragging rights of winning the challenge against other schools in Parkland School Division.

The staff and students at Seba Beach look forward to next years challenge and would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and the most Memorable of New Years.

Starting off the 2012-2013 with Flying Bob

Every year, I am sure that Principals and School staff diligently plan and organize the first day of school activities. These activities are to not only start off the year on a positive note, but also to welcome and inspire the students and teachers about the upcoming year. Some schools hold prep rallies, some have huge meetings, some only have a welcome in the morning and it is off to class.

This year at Seba Beach, we thought we would try something that had not been done in some time. The students went to their classes in the morning to meet with their peers and with their teachers, to get important information about their classes and share their adventures over the summer.

In the afternoon, as always we planned to have cake (Chocolate and Vanilla) and hot dogs. As an additive this year we invited Flying Bob – a motivational speaker and entertainer to finish off the school day.

I would love to explain the amount of fun that the students had, however my literary skills would not do the experience justice. Therefore please enjoy our quick trailer video and please share what your school does for the first day of classes.
