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.
Marc Garneau’s co-ed volleyball team kicked off the season with an invitational tournament at Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute. The team showed great ball control and teamwork. They eventually lost in the quarterfinals, but players gained valuable court time to work out kinks in their rotations.
TOPS students have begun rehearsing their TOPSody piece. TOPSody is a musical piece composed by one grade 12 TOPS student every year, and its style is influenced by the composer’s own high school experiences. Students will attend weekly after-school rehearsals in order to prepare for their performance in June.
