To conclude their unit on Shakespeare, the grade 10 English class watched a performance of Romeo and Juliet at Stratford and analyzed various aspects of the play. Students discussed how each character contributed to the play’s tragic events and outcome. The class also studied the themes, motifs, and symbols woven into the play.
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.
This week, the grade 9 English students completed their summative presentations. The students were required to create a story timeline using the books they read throughout the semester. Free to use any media, they were asked to be creative and connect each story to their academic and personal growth.
Many students gathered in the cafeteria to participate in the Kindness Café, which is an event ran by the Undercover Kindness club. Participants were encouraged to write positive words on sticky notes and exchange them. As a bonus, they received small treats such as Oreo cookies and handmade brownies.
