2015 Gr. 9 Retreat

Each year our grade nine class heads out of the city and retreats away from the bustle of life. This year we spent our 48 hour retreat at Camp Moose Lake May 19-21st. It was a great time to socialize, enjoy God’s good creation, laugh and play. We also spent quality time in worship, learning and prayer. Guests, Jeff Friesen and Darryl Neustaedter Barg led us and challenged us to “Keep on the lookout, for the God who is looking our the best of you.” Students ended their time by blessing each other with a foot washing service. We returned home clean and spiritually refreshed.

OED Biking Map Assignment May 19/20

BEFORE THE RIDE
Students will print part of the Winnipeg Cycling Map (found here) http://www.winnipeg.ca/publicworks/MajorProjects/ActiveTransportation/maps-and-routes.stm or using this link for a slightly more interactive map http://www.winnipegtrails.ca/trails-maps/

Students will trace out the route they intend to cycle during class (6 – 20 km)

Students will estimate the total distance of the ride and the total time required. This should allow them to calculate a min/km rate.

All of this should be handed in prior to their ride. Students can hand in one map per group. Groups can be as small as two people.
DURING THE RIDE
Students need to have a GPS tracking app installed (and hopefully tested) before the ride. I recommend MapMyRide.

Students will use the app to verify their estimates and their route.

Students must have a phone with them during the ride and must stay together as a group. All group members should be very aware of the route
AFTER THE RIDE
Students will print out the data […]
