Star Wars! This week, Principal Ben brought in an amazing book on the cosmos to the Gr 6 science classroom. The students were so excited when they discovered it, that they swarmed the book, brought it to a desk, and chattered excitedly about the photos and used their learnings from their current astronomy unit to discuss what they saw on each page. This was a spontaneous example of real student engagement with, and excitement for, their learning! Thank you, Principal Ben, for this amazing opportunity for our students. Ris Grade 6 reflected: "Today my class and I got this wonderful book Cosmos, and other books.

Over the course of 5 weeks, the 8/1 homeroom class has been watching two documentaries: Exodus, and Exodus: The Journey Continues. Frontline, an affiliate of PBS, produced the documentaries. In these documentaries Frontline, vividly captures the ongoing global crisis  - immigration - by profiling a few families over the span of 2 years. Students were actively engaged while watching these documentaries. They asked a number of questions which allowed us to partake in meaningful dialogue.

The students were amazed that their letters were read by the Frontline team. It was a great reinforcer for students to grasp…

As part of our ongoing efforts to push our students to become critical thinkers, effective communicators, global citizens and lifelong learners, we have begun introducing a course that will challenge our young adolescent learners to think beyond the ideas that they have thought before, to look deeper into their ideas, to work collaboratively in creating solutions and be able to present in a way that their ideas are truly heard. The video shared can give you an insight into what we hope to achieve. This process challenges our students to think beyond the conventional, to look…
