The grade 11 chemistry class investigated the properties of various substances when added to water. Students obtained results for characteristics like solubility and conductivity and then attributed these properties to ionic or molecular substances. The knowledge gained from this lab will be invaluable for future studies in chemical bonding.
Freedom Day is an event that advocates for the awareness of human rights issues to students across the GTA. The grade 10 English class attended Freedom Day 2017, which included an array of motivational speaking performances. Students also visited a photojournalism exhibit at the Allen Lambert Galleria, featuring snapshots of affairs relevant to this day.
This week, the grade 10 computer science class used Java to create elaborate programs depicting a house and the moon. To expand on their designs, students coded gradients, polygons, and colours to run a program that followed a theme. For example, many were modelled after architectural wonders, holidays, or a distinct country.
