As the first snow falls, the sign-up for the Millbrook South Cavan Ski and Snowboard club commences. Kids in grade 4 to 8 look forward to the snowy hills and icy jumps all year round. For a few short months, ski club will be in full action!
This is the third year for the amazing ski club. Excitement is brewing as the kids count down the days until they can pull out their skis and snowboards and hit the hills with the radical teacher volunteers. When the students arrive at Brimacombe, they endure a one hour lesson suited to their strengths and skill level, and then they are free to do as they wish. The students have the option of buying a warm supper in the chalet or bringing a lunch from home. The bus leaves the slopes at 8:00 PM and arrives back at school at 8:30 PM for parents and guardians awaiting their arrival.

Crazy Bling Day
Crazy bling day was latest sprit day at Millbrook South Cavan. It was on December 19th, and we were invited to wear as much jewelry as we could. Belts, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings were just some of the things we saw. Some students went all out wearing all the jewelry they had in their room that day. Some students even wore sparkly clothes for extra bling.

Peterborough Liftlock Tournament
The Peterborough Liftlock tournament was 60 years old last month. At this tournament we made friends on our team and on other teams, too. Both the Atom House League and the Rep teams played in this tournament. Members of the House League team went to team breakfasts and lunches and also to a Peterborough Petes game on Saturday night. The Peterborough Liftlock tournament is one of the biggest if not the biggest hockey tournament in Ontario. There were teams from all over the province and from Quebec.
