Starting in November, Students had to complete a practicing challenge. The mascot of our challenge was Brainy the octopus. As such, students were given one challenge a week. During the week, they had to complete this challenge 8 times. Challenges included: playing a piece 8 times, doing 8 pages of theory, and sight reading 8 pieces. For each week students completed this challenge, they earned a penny.
Students were given 3 challenges each, and reported their results at the end of the week. Over the course of the challenge, students earned 29 pennies. At the end of the challenge, the pennies were exchanged for loonies at the Stuffie Bank, meaning Brainy had 29 dollars to donate to the food bank.
Brainy took photos of his entire shopping trip. Results were announced at our Christmas Recital on December the 19th, where students also got to see photos from Brainy’s shopping trip. (If you’d like to see the entire trip, all the photos have been uploaded to the studio’s Facebook Page.)
