This month, our MAC Grade 2 students went on an exciting trip to Variety Village to enhance their IB unit on Sharing the Planet, Levelling the Playing Field. Students participated in a variety of inclusive sporting activities followed with a discussion focused on ability, awareness, diversity, integration and active living.
Students from MacLachlan College were invited to participate in the Town of Oakville's Grade 5 civics competition — Bring it to Council! On May 10th, Ishan and Kate joined in a mock Council debate, discussing the question “What would you do to make Oakville more livable and how would you pay for it?”. This was a great opportunity for students to express their student voices in Council Chambers where they discussed and debated their “big idea” with Mayor Rob Burton providing guidance and direction.
Today our MAC students are celebrating their school spirit during our Upper School Funky Hair CD Day and PYP Crazy Hat & Hair CD Day! Students and staff alike had a great time sporting so many creative and amazing hairstyles and hats bringing cheer and excitement just in time for the long weekend!
On Tuesday, April 30th, the Grade 9 French class walked to Downtown Oakville to have lunch at the Crepe Kitchen. The students were treated to delicious French food while also enjoying some French conversation with their peers and teachers.
The food was delicious and many students even ordered additional crepes as they wanted to try them all! I am sure many of them will revisit this little gem of a restaurant in our downtown area. C'était fantastique!
