Thing We Do in English (Ms Matheos' Classes)

From Ms. Matheos Classes: Above, a presentation by Doug Spencer from the Odd Squad - relating the conflict in Romeo and Juliet to lower mainland gang wars.   Below, Act 3 scene 1 - the death of Mercutio and Tybalt.   A nice way to enjoy Shakespear in the beautiful sunshine.



What Better Way to Say Thanks...

Our Grade 12 Students went around the school at the end of the day saying thanks with ice cream.  Loaded up with some cream treats, students provided staff a little afternoon snacks as a small token of thanks.


Tech At Work... or Play

Students in Mr. Beresford's class were testing the accuracy of their recently built catapults.  



Big Ball in PE

Not your average sized ball....  Students in M. Clemente's class were enjoying a game of Big Ball. 


The "Teenage Brain"

Students in Mr. Wilson's Drama 9 class were doing a expriemental piece called "Brainstorm."  This combined students own writing about feelings, how they think their brains work, the pandemic and anything else that is circulating through their collective experiences.
