This week, grade nine TOPS students are working on their geography summative projects. They are studying different industries such as waste management, mining, fishing, and agriculture as well as their effects on our environment. Through their research, they are gaining insight into increasingly pressing environmental problems.
Grade 9 TOPS students have recently presented their science fair projects, which they have been working on since September. Science Fair allows the students to share their knowledge with the class. Many of the students will be qualified to enter the School-wide Science Fair as well as the Toronto Science Fair.
This week, Grade 12 English classes began their student-led seminars on short stories from the 19th and 20th centuries. Students examined short stories ranging from Pushkin’s “The Queen of Spades” to Atwood’s “Death by Landscape” and guided their peers through them with lively, interactive presentations and formal discussions.
