Things have been busy as of late for the Social Science Department. January marks the end of the semester and the start of the first round of exams for students. Following this, February brings with it the beginning of a new semester and a number of important events.
On February 11th St. Patrick High School will host its annual Open House for Grade 8 students. The event begins at 7:00pm in the school gymnasium. Come and see what we have to offer and what a fantastic learning environment St. Patrick is.
As usual, Social Science will have a booth set up along with all of the other departments to showcase our subject areas, especially Grade 9 and 10 geography, history and civics. Technology and our excursions to Europe will be a big focal point. Several members of the department will be on hand to answer your questions, so be sure to stop and chat with us!
In 2017 Canada will be celebrating two very important milestones; the 150th anniversary of the founding of our country and the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. These were both monumental events in our great history.
As detailed on several previous occasions, St. Patrick will be travelling to France in April 2017 to participate in the ceremonies to commemorate the Battle of Vimy Ridge along with thousands of high school students from across Canada. Led by Mr. Battistel and Ms. Caza, over 20 students have registered to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity. We will be once again travelling alongside our sister school, St. Ignatius. Even though we are more than 2 years away, the excitement continues to build for this trip.
