Great Things Seen & Heard

  • Four students wandered into school after skipping Block 3 to find the school was empty! Were they ever surprised to hear buses were sent home early, and even more disappointed when we sent them to class to catch up on work.
  • A Grade 12 student asked for his mark, and when he heard it was 25%, he was surprised it’s so high!
  • A shy Grade 10 student who never talks to his peers said he’d like a bag of chips and his classmates brought him some from the store. How sweet of them!
  • Student tells others that their teacher makes Finance more fun than it should be. Way to go, FS!
