This was a school year unlike any other… but that didn’t stop our Gilpin Gators!
The video below recognizes students who completed 150 nightsof home reading. These students have a love of books and a passion for reading that is truly inspiring. Each of them will have their name placed in one of our library books next fall. Until then, congratulations and thanks for being such amazing readers!
The Words Anthology is an annual tradition that celebrates the writing of Burnaby students. This year’s edition, Waves of Words, is especially exciting because it features writing from three of our own Gilpin Gators: Matteo, Lisa, and Lilian. Congratulations to all three of you!
In the poem Dear Soccer, Matteo eloquently expresses how much this sport means to him! (Read it on Page 6 of the Anthology.)
In the short story The Egg, Lisa transforms an otherwise bad day into an encounter with something magical! (Read it on Page 14 of the Anthology.)
In the poem The Life of Fire, Lilian’s vivid, descriptive imagery makes fire leap off the page! (Read it on Page 18 of the Anthology,)
You can find all of these entries, and more, in the Waves of Words Anthology!
