EAMS student enjoy math camp, hike and soccer jamboree

Summer Math Camp, Annual Mountain Climb, Soccer Jamboree

My name is Jaci Gilbert and I go to Eliza Archie Memorial School.

I am the author of this month. The events that I am writing about are the Summer Math Camp, my school’s Annual Mountain Climb and the Soccer Jamboree that we hosted.

The math camp was in July and August. Pam Bailey and Barb Macleod organized the camp and brought in a math specialist from Vancouver. We learned about fractions, decimals and percentages.

Some of the time we played games to help teach us. “War” with fraction cards and “Run Around Fractions” were my favourites.

At the end of the camp, we made cookies but first we made a recipe full of equations from decimals and percentages.

The Annual Mountain Climb is where the whole school goes climbing or hiking up the broken rock. There’s two different ways to go up the mountain.

The intermediates go up the rocks. They’re very slippery and there are snakes up on the mountain.

The other way to go up is the primary route. I say they were lucky because they got driven about half way up broken rock.

The primary and the big kid’s route meet up. When everybody met up at the top of the mountain, we took a school picture. The view was great; we could see everything from a distance. We could almost see the community and there was a pond shaped like a heart.

I feel great to be part of this community.

On Oct. 10, our school hosted the soccer jamboree. As usual, different schools came to our school to play soccer. The schools were Forest Grove, Horse Lake and 100 Mile House.

We made schedules for the games and we made teams from all the schools. Teenagers from our community volunteered to be coaches and referees.

My school sold bannock and burgers. The parents sold them for fundraising. Thank you to Adrian Archie, Zoey Daniels, William Frank, Vern Christopher, Marty Dixon and Eddie Dixon for setting up everything and organizing.

This is how this school year, like many of the other years, started. The soccer jamboree and the mountain climb were past school year events.

The soccer jamboree is what I always look forward to at the beginning of the year. It’s my favourite event!
