In connection with their unit on ‘Migration’, our Grade 3 students took a trip back in time to early Canada at Westfield Heritage Village. Students were able to try out traditional pioneer games and crafts, and experience what life was like in a one-room schoolhouse. Students learned about winter travel in Canada and the different Victorian strategies for keeping healthy during difficult times in early Canada.
On Thursday, November 29th the grade 8-11 ESL students spent their day at the Christmas Market in the Toronto Distillery District. Students enjoyed a tour of the area and learned some interesting Toronto history. After the tour they had some time to explore the market, with plenty of delicious food and shopping, everyone had a great time!
The MACtion Crew went on an exciting experiential trip to the WE Global Learning Centre in Toronto to attend a Youth Leadership Conference. The conference was designed to help teach youth about how to take action on issues they care about.
They had the opportunity to explore global challenges through team building, skill development, and issue analysis. The students learned the basics of social entrepreneurship, developed financial literacy skills and took the initial steps involved in creating an action plan. A fantastic experience!
