The Reckoner, the school newspaper of Marc Garneau C.I., is an outlet for student expression which showcases students’ skills in writing, illustration, photography, graphic design and coding. This year, The Reckoner has received a total of thirteen awards at the Toronto Star’s annual High School Journalism Awards. Winners attended an awards ceremony and luncheon at the Toronto Reference Library.
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.
In the TOPS program, many students have chosen visual arts as an elective course. The Trashion Show is an annual event that encourages grade 11 visual arts students to use their creativity to design fashionable clothing using waste products. Furthermore, the annual show is done in partnership with MGCI EcoTeam to help promote sustainability.
