Our Gr.12 Physics students showcased their egg drop devices after carefully designing, planning and constructing the perfect prototype. The goal of the experiment was to protect the vulnerable egg that was encased by each device - this was achieved through the process of slowing descent and resisting the force of gravity. Another ‘egg-citing’ hands-on experiment at MAC!
In conjunction with their ongoing Inquiry unit on Health and Wellness, our Grade 2 students had the opportunity to discuss oral hygiene during an informative learning trip to Ritebite Orthodontics. Students had a great time attending different rotations focused on x-rays, brushing and flossing techniques, using molding clay to make an imprint, discussing brackets and braces, and talking about healthy food for their teeth.
Today our upper school students had the pleasure of meeting with 4 amazing therapy dogs from St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog program. This visit was organized by our MacLachlan College prefects for our students to connect with before midterms. The therapy dogs brought amazing energy into the room, reducing stress, comforting and calming each individual and bringing smiles to everyone’s faces!
It was definitely Aariz’s day, as he picked up where he left off last season that being his 4 goals per game scoring pace!

Alina, making her SSFHL debut, put the Stars up by 3 with her first career goal. Mohammed and another Stars’ rookie, Hugo put pucks past the post before Aariz slapped home his second of the contest. Saad skillfully supplemented the Stars scoring spectacle with his lone goal before Aariz added another two. The Hawks finally got on the score sheet with a nifty backhanded finish wraparound goal by Alex. Hugo netted his second for the Stars before Gayan managed to beat the Stars’ keeper, for the Hawks second marker. Aariz bookended the match with his fifth goal of the game, giving the Stars an 11-2 win.
In the second game of the night, the Habs came out flying! Omar broke the ice by scoring his league debut goal just prior to the end of his first shift. Lawson made his presence felt early with a pair of goals to put the Habs up 3-0. Max joined the scoring procession prior to Flyers’ rookie Thomas making the most of Evan’s feed. Lawson blasted another pair of pucks past the Flyers fearless keeper of the twine, to put the Habs out front 5-1. The scoring ebbed and flowed between the two clubs as Godfrey responded for the Orange and Black with his first of three goals, then Kavi scored his first of three for the Rouge, Bleu et Blanc.
