Beyond their rigorous academics, many TOPS students also enjoy indulging in the arts. Once a year, Marc Garneau CI holds Arts Night: a school-wide event where students showcase their artistic talents through band performances or the display of artistic pieces. While attendance for the event is mandatory for students enrolled in art courses, many others participated as well.
Marc Garneau’s Eco-Team hosted an “Eco Ex” in the school’s galleria. The event raised awareness about various environmental issues. There were games, information booths, and taste testing stations. Many TOPS students were integral to the planning of the event.
Several TOPS students are part of Marc Garneau CI Curling Team, who played their first game this week against Victoria Park CI after weeks of intense training. Although they failed to win, it was a very close match and the team showed excellent spirit and teamwork skills throughout the game.
Last Thursday, the MGCI Chess Club had the honor of hosting its own chess tournament. With 5 TOPS students in each of the junior and senior teams, each member played a match against one other school. The junior team swept 5-0 while the senior team finished 2-3.
