This week, the grade 10 class travelled to Ottawa as an enrichment to their history course. From visiting Parliament and the Supreme Court, to exploring multiple art and history museums, the trip was both exciting and informative. In addition, the group had a wonderful experience skating on the Rideau Canal.

This week, the grade 10 English class read books depicting World War II, such as Maus by Art Spiegelman and Night by Elie Wiesel. They were immersed in the devastation of Hitler’s commands, the complex and careful politics, and the overwhelming sense of fear. Group discussions of the students’ reading will be held next week.
