Here are our answers to their questions:
Do you have a sledging or snowboarding club too?
We have a snowboarding club. It is part of our ski club. There are more student skiers than snowboarders. We don’t have a sledging club. Here in Canada we call it tobogganing (even though most of us use plastic sleds or crazy carpets instead of traditional tobaggans). We go to nearby hills with friends and family.
Did anyone famous for skiing or snowboarding go to your school?
No we don’t have anyone famous. But, Mr. Toft would like to think he is famous for skiing. But, he definitely is not! Maybe infamous. Just kidding!
How high do you go when you go skiing?
At Mount Pakenham, where our ski club goes, the height is 223 metres.
Jamie would like to know how deep the snow is when it falls.
We just had our first snow storm of the season. There was about 25 cm of snow that fell in one day. School buses were cancelled that day but the schools remained open.
According to our quick research Ottawa gets an average 150 cm to 225 cm of snow each year. It changes from year to year, of course.
Daniel plays on our football and athletics teams and wants to know if you have teams for these too and what other sports you do.
At our school, we have soccer, bordenball, basketball, volleyball, cross country, track and field.
How far away is your school from ours?
We came up with 5 150 kilometres or 3 194 miles. What did your class come up with?
