Anthony’s Blog October 12, 2018.
This week in our Tuesday morning gathering, we sang our Saint Michael songs and then Gundula read to us this week’s Calendar of the Soul verse. After that Deepak told us what happened in ‘Today in History’. He told us that in 1446 the Hangul Korean alphabet was published. He also told us that in 1855 Mortevice sewing machine was invented. In 1888 the Washington monument was opened. Last but not least in 2012 Malala was shot three times in the face for trying to be an advocate for girls education in Pakistan. Then everybody told us about their Thanksgiving weekends and Gundula and Raymond stalked about the weather. After that Ruth T. spoke about the stars and then we sang’Happy Birthday’ to Teresita and Doug. In the afternoon we broke into our eurythmy and walking groups.
In our Thursday morning College, we learned about our forest. To start off Patricia told us that our forest in British Columbia is one of the most unique forests in the world. It is called the rain forest because it rains a lot in B.C. Also the hundred year old trees that grow in the forest are among the tallest in the world. After that Patricia showed us the maple leaf and two different chestnuts. The first chestnut was very prickly with thorns and was called the Italian chestnut. The second chestnut that she showed us was not at all prickly. It was more soft and it was called the horse chestnut. After hearing about the forest, Jana, Hanieh and Thomas told us about the bald and the golden eagle. We learned that they both lived in North America. Some live near the water and only eat fish and others live more in land and eat mice, snakes and minks. We learned that the eagle has very good eye sight being able to see two miles away. Then we pretended to fly like an eagle.
After a short break, we started to prepare for Halloween. In the afternoon, everybody went for a walk around the track. On Friday afternoon we sang with Ashling.
