John Carmichael Visits TOPS Students

On November 13th, John Carmichael, the Don Valley West MP, visited MGCI to talk to the grade 9 students about his job and issues affecting the GTA. Students had a chance to ask him questions, as well as learn more about the government of Canada, recent news, and how to become involved in politics in the future.

This week in geography, the grade 9 TOPS students showed off their green thumb by planting! After finishing their chapter on ecozones, learning about sustainability, and getting to the root of the global warming issue, there was no better way to end the unit than by giving back to the planet.
