The Latest-April 2018

It is important for all of us to appreciate where we come from and how that history has really shaped us in ways that we might not understand-Sonia Sotomayor

As we head into spring, students in the Social Science Department have been very busy.

Students in Ms. Bernardi’s Grade 9 geography class had the opportunity to experience some fantastic hands-on learning thanks to Confederation College. Keith Hautala, an educator at Confederation College led the class on a fun expedition outside. Keith kindly donated his time to help teach the students about identifying different types of animal tracks, properly documenting them and discussed how to integrate gathered information into GIS programming.

In just under a year, some of students and teachers will be heading to Europe for another history themed excursion. We have now filled all our spots and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of March 2019 departure date. During that time, the students will be preparing for the visit by researching some of the sites and cemeteries we will be visiting on the 10 day trip. You can read more about the trip here.

Be sure to check back regularly for the latest news and information.
