EMS Week Kick Off

Today ÉRB had the opportunity to be a part of the EMS Week kick off. Students had the opportunity to learn more about the services that EMS provides.  Students got tours of an ambulance, fire truck, MIRV, and police car.  They also had the chance to brush up on their bicycle safety, learn about calling 911 and how services are dispatched.  They even got to take home their own first aid kits.  Thanks to all the EMS staff that came out today!  It was a great experience for everyone!

Badminton Season Wrap Up

Congratulations to all of ÉRB’s badminton club participants!  You all have shown a great deal of growth in your skills and knowledge of the game.  Hope that you enjoyed your time!  Yesterday 12 selected students had the opportunity to participate in our annual Strathmillan/Stevenson/Robert Browning badminton tournament.  All participants played very well and were great sports.  You’ve done École Robert Browning proud.  IMG_0741 IMG_0739 IMG_0745 IMG_0744 IMG_0750 IMG_0749 IMG_0748 IMG_0747 IMG_0752 IMG_0754


In the coming weeks students will have the opportunity to get a taste for geocaching.

What is geocaching?

It’s a global gps-powered treasure hunt.

How many geocaches are hidden worldwide?

Over 2 million!

Students will be using divisional GPSs to hunt for geocaches hidden in our school grounds by M. Vermeylen.

Good luck and happy caching!
