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.
This week, each grade was in the midst of making their TOPS video for the upcoming TOPS night. For grades 9 to 11, it is a video they make as a farewell to the graduating seniors. For the grade 12s, the video will reveal the university each student plans to attend.
The Marc Garneau co-ed volleyball team finished their last regular season game with a victory over Parkdale Collegiate Institute. The team trained in the mornings at 7:00am and after school until 5:00pm with a community coach. They will be moving on to the playoffs in the following week.
Many TOPS students are members of various school clubs, such as DECA or Me to We. In the student council’s first Clubs Fair of the semester, students had the opportunity to advertise their clubs and fundraise by selling different types of foods, ranging from cotton candy to samosas.
