Cooking Class – July 12

The cooking class was fun and interesting because they taught us how to make poutine. That is fries with cheese and meat sauce, this recipe was my favourite. I tried it my first time in Canada because in Colombia there is no poutine. The other  recipe was a cinnamon roll; it was very delicious. It is a dessert of cinnamon. I like this activity because was my first time that  I made poutine and cinnamon rolls.


Calypso – July 10

Today was a great day for me, I loved to enjoy the unique experience. I rode  all the attractions such as: Vertigo.

I liked it so much and would love to go back. It was great.

Laser Quest – July 8

Today, some of the summer school students, among that me, went to laser quest; it is like a “war” between everyone, but with laser guns. First, we played individually, in a dark and neon place, it was really fun; we were ranked and I won the 25th place, the first place was a teacher. After that first round, I played air hockey with Çinar, but I can’t remember who won. Then, we were called for going inside the game area, but this time we weren’t playing individually; this time was in teams, three teams, the red, the blue and the purple one. I was in the blue one, I had so much fun, I ran a lot, I shot a lot and at the end my team won!

Bus Tour – July 2

Today, all my friends and some new people from other countries, like Spain, went on a bus tour with the school. When the bus took off, the guide started to talk about Ottawa and Canada. The first stop was Parliament Hill which is one of the most touristic spots in Ottawa. The Hill is where the prime minister works! After going to parliament, we went to the history museum and saw totem poles. We also talked about the architecture of the museum. The guide told us that the museum’s ceiling has the shape of a canoe. When the trip came to an end, we returned to school, so we could go back home. It was a cool and interesting day!

We had a nice class in the morning. We played some fun games that told us things about the animals we were going to see. The next day, then we got on the bus, then we got off the bus to buy some provisions and food to give the animals that walked in the park. Later, we saw many animals, then we went back to school and we went home.


Canoeing – July 4

The boating was a spectacular experience. I could appreciate the beauty of the falls; also, I was in a canoe for the first time and paddling for the first time in my life. It was a nice experience but the bad thing was that yesterday it was a very hot day but I still liked my new experience…….because I like to do new things like extreme sports….to be continued..


Mud Oven – July 3

Today we went to a place where they taught us to paint pottery in which each of the students chose a figure and the colors that we were going to use. We all started to paint and the lady of the pottery gave us instructions to be able to fit our sculpture. We all started to paint the first layer then we took it to the dryer so that it was dry for the second layer. This procedure did retouching and then finally we marked our pottery and handed it to the lady who put it in the oven so that it would be fine and then we came back to school. They told us that they would give us back our ceramics when they came out of the oven and cool.

I liked today because we learned new things that we did not know and it was a very nice experience because it was something you could do by yourself.

I really liked this place and I would love to go again.
