Modernization update

As I had mentioned in my last post it has come time for the Learning Commons to be renovated.  This means that the last couple of weeks were spent packing up and moving all the books.  It actually went faster than I had anticipated and everything is more accessible that I had originally expected it to be.  I’ve already attached some pictures of what the space looked like before and I am now attaching pictures of the space once all the books were moved, the newly built space I have moved into along with the Work Experience Office, a picture of the books/magazines which are housed down the hall and finally a couple of pictures of the very empty space that was the Learning Commons and is now a major construction site.  The new space in which I am presently working out of is fondly being called The Lodge due to its rustic appearance.  It is exciting times here at EBHS and I can’t wait to show everyone the final product.

Heavy Freight

Fifteen-year-old Maxwell Stone has been surviving and thriving in the tough part of East Vancouver by being smart and fast. But when a drug deal goes wrong, Max suddenly finds himself on the run from both the bad guys and the cops. Desperate to escape, Max impulsively decides to hop on a moving freight train. His first attempt to climb aboard fails, but at the last second a hand reaches down and pulls him in. Joseph has been riding the rails for years, and his tales inspire Max to take a journey to the last place he ever expected to go.

I looked forward to reading this book as it is written by Sigmund Brouwer and he doesn’t disappoint.  There is great action right from the start with awesome characters. A great story with important messages contained.  I highly recommend everyone read this book.
