In Computer Science class, Grade 10s are blasting off into a new unit as they take on the challenge of simulating a rocket ship’s flight in space. Students are learning to import images and sounds, and use loops to make their creations come to life.
The grade nines have moved on to explore the science within the human body! Today they stepped into the life of a healthcare professional as they used stethoscopes and sphygmomanometers to probe and measure each other’s heart rate, and blood pressure. Such an experience allows students to better understand the complexity of the circulatory system.
This week Grade 12 students gave presentations on short stories to discuss aspects such as style, conflict, and purpose. Authors ranged from H. G. Wells to Alice Munro. Students will complete the unit by writing an introduction to an anthology filled with stories of their choosing.
This week grade 10 students began the first of a three-part lecture on the evolution of the English language. With the Gregorian Chant playing in the background, the young scholars learned about the history of England–from the Roman Empire to the Vikings and their contributions to Modern English.
