Over the weekend, 16 Meadowridge students participated in the Canadian International Model UN Conference in downtown Vancouver. With close to 700 delegates at the conference, four Meadowridge students brought home individual awards!
Congratulations to our Bantam Badminton Players for winning the championships! Our Gryphons placed first in four out of five games. With a large roster at the Bantam level, we had eight players represent us in the finals.
In late April, our Kindergarten students met up with their Grade 12 buddies for a special project: creating unique potted plants for Mother's Day.
At Meadowridge, our MYP students start the year off a little differently than at most schools. It's a little difference that makes a big difference, and it's something that our students and teachers look forward to every year: Meadowridge's Week Without Walls (WWOW). New this year, students in the MYP will be venturing off on a second set of trips at the end of May.
If you've never heard this next phrase uttered, you're probably not a Math teacher: when will I ever use this in real life?
We all agree that Math is important, but when faced with a problem we can't quite figure out, our immediate reaction is to denounce its rightful place in the world. Learn how Mr. Rinn is putting an end to Math's longest running fallacy... and yes, it involves a trip to Mr. Burke's home!
When you think about wholesome, home-cooked meals, you don't typically think of them being served up by a 16-year-old. For teenagers, the common belief is this: if it's not instant, canned, frozen, or ready in under three-steps, then it's beyond the realm of their culinary competence. You can imagine people's surprise, then, when they happened upon the personal project of Grade 10 Student Ved V., who was not only cooking up delicious and fresh foods from scratch, but empowering his peers to do the same.

I believe that part of being a good leader is knowing when to "do" and when to "delegate". By nature, I am really a "doer". However, I have learned through experience that almost all of the time, delegating responsibilities leads to the best outcomes.
“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results…" I keep this mantra in mind whenever I'm acting in a position of leadership. If something isn't working, change strategies.”
Tamara Warner, Faculty
Ms. Tamara Warner is one of the foundation builders, and for a few years now she has seen her first batches of students graduate. Hired in August 2000, Ms. Warner taught Grade 1 for seven years before moving to Kindergarten, from which she never wants to leave.
“What keeps me at Meadowridge are the personal and emotional connections. I am an emotional person, and the genuine feeling of belonging is so strong here.”
Avio Diniz, Faculty
Meadowridge students are full of joy, eager to learn, natural inquiries and have genuine care about others and our environment.
“They truly exemplify the IB Learner Profile attributes wonderfully.”
Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community
Our Mission is woven into our everyday actions and interactions. It acknowledges the importance of positive interactions with others and in seeking to better the community as we better ourselves.
It looks beyond gender, nationality, culture, and class. It guides staff, administration, students, and families to meet responsibilities and fulfill dreams.
