MYP Museum Night - A Celebration of Learning

Our MYP will be hosting a Night at the Museum and you are invited! Students will be showcasing their project work and being your museum tour guides as you see what your child has been up to in school! Their binders will also be in their classroom for you to see so that you have another chance to celebrate your child’s growth and support them in their school experience. Finally, you will have an opportunity to meet and chat with your child’s teachers to gain more insight into their learning and progress at school.

Is It A Dance Floor or The Woodshop?

Thank you to our operations and maintenance department for finding time, despite the long list of jobs they have, to sand and varnish our woodshop floor.  Mr. Shaw and his students were so excited to return to find the shiny floor.  It was all hands on deck to return worktables and equipment back in place to resume the design and build cycle in the woodshop.  Thank you, James, our shop looks new again!

End of Term Foods Cook-Off

Ms. Skand’s Foods 9/10 class was busy preparing for the end of quarter 1 and the end of their Italian cooking unit. The culminating demonstration of learning was the popular “cook-off.” The chef’s enjoyed preparing chicken marinara, spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, risotto, Italian soda and tiramisu to name just a few of the dishes.  The staff food judges especially enjoyed sampling “cibo delizioso” and providing feedback to the chefs.

The underlying story that fueled our fall athletic program was the energy and capacity of our grade 8-10’s to compete in their respective over-age divisions. To field teams for senior competitions, it required many of our junior aged students to “play-up”. Unsurprisingly, many of our grade 9 & 10 students were eager to fill the void available on our senior teams.

Indigenous Veterans Day - November 8

November 8th is a day marked to honour the contributions of Indigenous Peoples to the Canadian Military.

"Did you know that First Nations served in the Canadian Military at a higher rate than any other group in this great nation? More than 4,000 Indigenous people served Canada in the First World War. In fact, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people served Canada in all the great conflicts and peace support missions of the 20th century."
