Cap Hill Intermediate Choir practices will start this week on Tuesdays at 12:15 in the music room. All grade 4-7 students are welcome to come and join the fun! We will be learning songs for Remembrance Day, Christmas and the District Choir Festival.
Music classes will start up again with some high energy drumming! We will be playing djembes, instruments that originate from West Africa. The name of the djembe comes from the saying “Anke djé, anke bé” which translates to “everyone gather together in peace” and defines the drum’s purpose. It will be a wonderful way to start the year!

Sport stacking (also known as cup stacking or speed stacking) is an individual and team sport that involves stacking specialized plastic cups in specific sequences in as little time as possible. Participants of sport stacking stack cups in pre-determined sequences in pyramids of 3, 6, or 10 cups. Players compete against the clock or another player. Stacking builds great hand-eye coordination and skills that are important for playing sports and musical instruments. Check it out on Sports Day!
