Around Meadowridge: New and Noteworthy

Family Game Night
In February, we held our first Family Game Night where we hosted Bingo and Gym Games for Elementary School families, and Trivia for Middle and High School families. With over 50 people in attendance, it was an incredible evening of fun and games.

Alumni Panel
Four Meadowridge alumni shared their expertise and experiences with our graduating class during our Alumni Panel Event, where students submitted their burning questions. Rijk M. (2014), Emily S. (2014), Dr. Meryl H. (2003), and Jonny H. (2017) shared their experiences and where life has taken them since their time at Meadowridge and answered student-submitted questions about university life, transitioning from Meadowridge, and
career-specific-inquiries. 

Fiddler on the Roof Jr., Almost,
Maine, and 101 Dalmatians KIDS

Congratulations to all our drama students on an amazing season this year. The Middle School Drama Department kicked off the year with their rendition of Fiddler on the Roof Jr. The excitement and laughter were enjoyed by all, and we loved seeing all the support from our Meadowridge families and the community. The High School Drama Department led us on an exciting journey through Almost, Maine, warming up the stage for our Elementary School production of 101 Dalmatians KIDS! We are so proud of all our students and their outstanding work this year. Thank you to all the Meadowridge staff, teachers, and parent volunteers who helped make these productions possible.

DP Art Exhibition
The culmination of many years of learning
and the many talents of our Diploma Programme (DP) Art students, the DP Art Exhibition promises a terrific collection each year. Each stroke of the brush, every splash of color, tells a story and captures a moment in time that is both poignant and timeless. This exhibition is not just a showcase of talent and creativity, it is a celebration of our students and their accomplishments and hard work over the past two years.

The Return of the Meadowridge Gala
On Saturday, April 15, we hosted our first Gala since 2017 and were thrilled to welcome over 200 guests for a night of food and drinks, great music, good company and loads of fun! Guests enjoyed a three-course plated dinner, a silent and live auction, our first-ever Alumni Spotlight series featuring three alumni and their remarkable  achievements, dancing, and more. A special thanks to all our generous sponsors and volunteers for helping to support a wonderful evening. 

Celebration of Learning
Students showcased and presented while our community marveled and learned. During the Celebration of Learning, Grade 5 Exhibition, Grade 10 Personal Projects, and Grade 12 Capstone Projects were on display for our entire community to enjoy. 

Cultural Celebrations
Students, staff, and faculty have enjoyed many parent-led cultural celebrations from Lunar New Year, Eid al-Fitr, and Nowruz. From delicious cuisines to performances, and classroom activities, the entire Meadowridge Community enjoyed learning more about different cultural celebrations. 

Career Roundtable Workshop
During February’s CWOW (Classroom without Walls), the Post-Secondary Department hosted a Career Roundtable workshop, which is an important time for our Grade 9 and 10 students to learn more about who they are and what they might like to become. This supports our students to make fundamental decisions to create the future they want. They learn from industry experts (Meadowridge parents, alumni, and friends of our community) in areas ranging from forensics, law, to gaming, engineering, and many more. 

Elementary School Readathon 
The Meadowridge Library held its annual Readathon for Elementary School students. With guest readers all day and a story walk in the forest, it was a day full of imagination with some of our favourite stories.
