Cumulative Chemistry Labs

This week grade 12 students are completing their Chemistry summative projects. Given the choice between synthesizing a complex compound and determining the Vitamin C concentration of different juices, students must design and execute their own procedures.

Identifying Ions

Grade 12 chemistry students completed a lab experiment that involved finding the ion composition of two unknown solutions. Students performed various qualitative tests on the solution, such as precipitate, flame, and ash tests. Using the results of these tests, they were able to determine the elements in the aqueous solution.

Badminton Regionals

This week, three TOPS students competed in the Toronto Regional Badminton tournament. Students competed against other schools in the district, vying for the chance to go to the city championships. All three students made it to the city championships and are excited to attend!


The grade 12 Algebra and Geometry class started their adventure into vectors. Students learned about vectors, dot products, their properties, and the steps to check if two vectors are orthogonal. These new topics enhance their existing mathematics knowledge and will be applied in greater complexity in the following units.
