The Latest-November 2017

History never really says goodbye. History says, “See you later.”-Eduardo Galeano

October was a very busy month for the students and teachers in the Social Science Department.

Students in our Grade 9 geography classes had the opportunity to travel to Fort William Historical Park to participate in the annual Fall Harvest program. There they were able to learn about many aspects of Indigenous culture, such as harvesting wild rice, preparation of bannock and cleaning of hides. It was a great introduction to the history and culture of our First Nations people.

Students in Ms. Bernardi’s Grade 9 geography classes had a unique opportunity to apply their knowledge in their study of geology. They used different types of chocolate, coupled with heat, pressure and time, to replicate the rock cycle. This unique application of hands-on learning allowed the students to see the process first-hand and more importantly, taste the fruits of their efforts.
