Since its grand opening on February 20th of this year, the Windermere Warrior Warehouse has been doing exceptionally well. As the warehouse continues to display great potential in the future as well as many more great goodies, I have asked Nathan Dinh, one of the many students in the marketing classes in charge of the Warrior Warehouse, a few questions.
How is the store doing so far?
It’s just fabulous. The marketing classes are getting hands on experience from working in the school store, and we’re actually getting regulars visiting us frequently. As well, we are aiming to get the whole school to know our presence!
What would you say makes the Warrior Warehouse special from anything else in the school?
Definitely the service and experience it gives.
Why are you so involved in the Warrior Warehouse? You’re working alongside with Mr. Wong to deciding what’s allowed to be sold, and what promotions go on in the store.
I’ve always wanted to work on the school store in the past, but unfortunately, I could not due to time table conflicts and the lack of opportunities. With the support of the business department and the marketing classes, the school store is how it is today!

Wasabi-Chili Pepper-Junior Chicken-Anchovy-Whipped Cream-Bitter Melon-Pickle-Oyster sauce milkshake… Sounds good doesn’t it? Just ask the staff that participated in our first ever Cooking Mama: Teacher’s Edition! Starting on March 23rd, the Student Council had been collecting donations to fund for a district wide initiative called Beyond Borders. Beyond Borders is a project set up by the Vancouver District Student Council to collect money in order to send 18 students from Vancouver to Vietnam to volunteer in an orphanage abroad. Mr. Schindel, Mrs. Liew, Mr. Walker, Mr. Griffiths, Mr. Tam, Mr. Castilho, Mr. Hamlen, and the Student Council did a great job of fundraising money for the Beyond Borders project. The Student Council spent two weeks collecting money for these 7 teachers, and the three that received the most donations would have to drink a random gruesome concoction made up of a mixture of wasabi, chili peppers, a Junior Chicken burger, anchovies, whipped cream, bitter melon, pickles, or oyster sauce. On Wednesday April 8th, their nightmare came true! Accompanying them were counselors, Ms. Lowe and Ms. Pears. The turnout was great and the house was roaring! Wasabi was mixed with bitter melon and junior chicken. Anchovies mixed with pickles combined with bitter melon. Chili peppers blended with… well, you get the point! Bottom line- gross and nasty things were being blended; it was sick! Thank you to the Student Council, the staff participants, everyone who donated and those who came out to watch! Look out Windermere; you may be seeing this again in the future!
Hey Warriors! The Windermere Word just wants to thank all of you who voted for “Warrior of the Month” for the month of May. The turnout was great! We had a total of 306 voters all over the school, which are the most voters we’ve had for a single month all year!
We also want to thank everyone who went on the Word website and gave in their nominees. We received a number of nominees through the website, all deserving to be “Warrior of the Month”.
Again, the hunt is on to find June’s “Warrior of the Month”. Do you know anyone who should be commended for their leadership skills, or their outstanding community service? Or maybe just a great friend? Then start thinking of those people! The Windermere Word is going to be announcing some important dates regarding the “Warrior of the Month.” Stay tuned
Lastly, congrats again to Nam Bui who is May’s “Warrior of the Month.” Way to go, Nam!

Hey Warriors, this is Nathan introducing you to the latest update on your own Windermere sports! Currently, we are in the middle of the winter season which includes basketball and… well, basketball.
Senior Boys (4-4)
You know these guys; they’ve been raising money selling pizza on Fridays for their teams – it’s the Senior Boys Basketball Team! They had quite a poor season, but their season is not over yet. They practice hard, but strive to practice even harder. Their games were like an up and down rollercoaster, winning some, losing some. They hope to end the season 7-3. Also, they are hoping for a high seed in the playoffs for a better chance at taking it home. Good luck at the rest of your season boys!
