  • Animal Classification at the Toronto Zoo

    On Thursday, September 27th, the grade 2 classes enjoyed a full day excursion to the Toronto Zoo. All students were actively engaged in enhancing their learning of “Animal Classification”. The full-day program allowed our students to distinguish between vertebrate and invertebrates and provided the opportunity to explore the characteristics of furry mammals, scaly reptiles, feathery birds, slippery fish, smooth amphibians, and insects. During their visit, the children loved learning all the personal information relating to the specific animals at the zoo (names, ages, habits, diet, etc.). One of our highlights was being able to observe the baby Hippopotamus, Penelope, as well as having the opportunity to see the very young rhinoceros.

    A fun-filled day of learning was had by all!

  • The Ultimate Report: Semi Finals & Championship

    The Ultimate season came to a close on October 12th as the playoff champions were crowned. In the first semi-final match, the undefeated, regular season champion, Yellow Jackets took on the Reds, who played their best game of the season.  The Yellow Jackets opened the scoring at the 3:50 mark as Rory caught Abby’s feed.  It took another 10 minutes of play before another score was realized, as Adam handled Ian’s scoring pass.  Three minutes later, it was Ian that made the scoring catch, as Saad provided the disc. As mentioned, the Reds were playing their best match of the season, as this game could easily have been a 2-2 draw.  However, it was not until 16:30 when Omar scored on Victoria’s assist.  The Reds kept pressing, but the Yellow Jackets were able to slip through for the final score as Carter corralled Saad’s scoring toss.
