This week, Grade 10 science students continued their chemistry unit, exploring synthetic, decomposition, displacement, and neutralization reactions. The class watched in amazement as clear, colourless liquids took on vibrant colours, and metal rusted before their eyes.
Grade 9 English students use an interactive, engaging way to learn about Greek mythology – they create board games, and then play them to have fun and test their knowledge. The games are focused around the content of the myths, as well as the archetypes present in them.
Grade 9 English students returned to school this week to take a second look at mythology through Joseph Campbell’s “Power of Myth”. The rest of the week will be devoted to reading and analyzing the Greek and Roman stories of the heroes and immortals of the past.
