Pine Crest Adventures

Grade 12 Photo - Sep 21

Last week, the new grade 9 TOPS students bonded through four days of camp activities at YMCA Camp Pine Crest. The annual trip aims to connect the students with their peers and the senior TOPS students who attended the trip alongside them. Students participated in various activities including swimming, archery, high and low ropes, and an introductory topology lecture.

Timeless Timelines

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.

Properties of Triangles

This week, the grade 9 math class continued their geometry unit on the properties of triangles. Students learned the process for proving congruence and similarity in triangles, and will be using this knowledge on the EQAO coming up next week.

Axioms and Theorems

The grade 9 math class started a new unit in geometry. They learned how to prove geometric theorems such as the parallel line theorem and the opposite angle theorem. Students utilized these theorems in homework questions designed to prepare them for their EQAO assessment at the end of the semester.
