Hi everyone,

With the start of the new school year, what is better than a new social activity! This year, GRSS is organizing a walk on the Mount Royal, a fun and great way to do physical activity in a social context!!! Everyone is welcome to join. Do not hesitate to bring your family.

When: Sunday September 13th at 1:30pm (weather permitting)

Meeting point: Jeanne Mance Park, in front of Georges-Étienne-Cartier Statue (located on Park Av.)

Please let me know by email (marika.demers@mail.mcgill.ca) if you will join us, as we want to make sure that everybody has arrived before we leave! The weather forecast for Sunday is great, but in case it changes, we will let you know 24h in advance if the activity is cancelled! For those who do not know me, I will put a GRSS sign on my black stroller!

We hope to see you there!

Holiday party 2014

We had our annual holiday party on the 12th of December 2014 at Thompson House at 5 pm. Unfortunately, this year the turn out was much less than expected. Nonetheless, for those who did manage to make it, the party turned out to be fun.

Instead of a potluck dinner, we decided to convert it to a happy hour. Along with a few pitchers of beer, we played boardgames and talked. It was great fun!

We hope next year we have a bigger group, so we all can celebrate the end of the year together.

The GRSS council wishes everyone a very Happy Holidays and a Happy and prosperous New Year 2015.

See you all next year! Looking forward to another year of enriching experiences.

GRSS Game Night Oct 2, 2014

Board game night was organised again this year at Thompson House on Thursday 2nd Oct, 2014. Although the attendance for the event was much less than last year, it still turned out to be a great evening.

Social events such as this bonds people, brings out a great spirit among the attendees and helps you learn so much more about an individual. Playing games tap into the fun side as well as the highly competitive side of a person. It also facilitates team spirit and trust. These small exercises outside the academic set up, we as council members believe, help people get closer and thus encourages greater academic interaction among the students of rehab sciences.

We will definitely organise another game night this year or the next year, so you all can come out and learn about yourselves and others, in a total fun and casual atmosphere.

Hope to see you all next time!


GRSS Sugar Shack – April 12, 2013

GRSS Christmas Party, Dec. 14, 2012

GRSS Masquerade Party – Nov. 16, 2012

Sugar Shack

Dear Students and Faculty,

The semester is almost over and the sugar shack is approaching! Prepare your taste buds for this amazingly sweet experience! The event will take place at La p’tite cabane d’la côte on April 27th. The dinner will be served at 7pm but we are welcome to come earlier and enjoy some out-door activities (walking, visiting the farm…).

There will be a 15$ charge (the rest being generously provided by GRSS!!). Friend and family are more than welcome (however, they will be charged full price: 25$).

If you haven’t confirmed your presence yet but would like to participate, please email us before the end of the week and we will be pleased to add your name on the list! Also, if you are coming with family or friends, it is important that you let us know how many people you are bringing at myriam.villeneuve@mail.mcgill.ca before the end of the week so we could count them in.

Also, we are organizing a car pool. Please, email me 1) if you need a lift or 2) if you have a car and would kindly accept to bring people with you (that would be very much appreciated!!). GRSS will give 30$/drivers for gas expense. We will also try to divide people who would like to leave earlier vs later into separate cars for the return so feel free to let me know when you wish to leave.

We look forward to hearing from you!

on behalf of the GRSS
