This Friday, MGCI held their first Clubs Fair in the galleria at lunch. Dozens of student-led groups including Orphan Sponsorship Club and the Muslim Student Association promoted their respective clubs and activities. Promotional items such as doodling cards and paper cranes were also given out at the event, attracting a successful student turn-out overall.
The Reckoner, MGCI’s school newspaper, held a meeting to start off the year. Many TOPS students participate in The Reckoner, whether it is through contributions of writing pieces, maintenance of The Reckoner’s website, or design of the paper’s layout. The club convened to outline expectations, upcoming deadlines, and future goals, as well as to welcome all new and returning members.
The annual Stratford trip allows students to view various productions at the Stratford Festival and explore the city’s rich culture. This year’s lineup included the plays An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Grades 9 and 10 enjoyed a play adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, while senior grades were immersed in The Rocky Horror Show.
