Celebrating Neurodiversity Week from April 15-19

Welcome to Celebrating Neurodiversity Week! This week aims to transform how neurodivergent people are perceived and supported by their communities and to recognise the many skills and talents of neurodivergent individuals and their contributions to our school and the wider community. 

Today we will have a fun activity in the student lounge…come and join us to see what it is!

Every day this week we will be having a topic for discussion during Advisor group which will be prompted by a question. Please discuss with your advisor group. Remember there are no wrong answers, we are just opening the topic up for discussion to see what we can learn from each other!

Today’s question is: What does the term "neurodiversity" mean to your advisor group?

Grade 9 CPR Class - Reminder: Wednesday April 17

All Grade 9 students are asked to arrive at school by 8:15 a.m. in order to ensure an 8:30 a.m. start to the day’s activities. All students are asked to go directly to the gymnasium when they arrive at school. Students need to dress in comfortable clothing as they will be sitting and working on gym mats.

For those students with existing certifications, the course will serve as a refresher, and these students will be able to assume leadership roles in the group work component of the session.

Toy Drive for the Shriners Hospital and Sarah’s Floor at the Montreal Children’s Hospital

Hello students! As part of our Grade 11 Integrative Project, we are planning on organizing a toy drive for the Shriners Hospital and Sarah’s Floor at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. If you do not know, the Shriners Hospital specializes care to children with orthopedic, muscular and neuromuscular conditions, and Sarah’s Floor, is the ward that treats kids diagnosed with cancer at the Montreal Children's Hospital. 

How to help? Please bring PACKAGED STORE BOUGHT toys to school. There will be designated boxes in the student lounge. Make sure that the toys are unopened and undamaged because the hospitals will not accept otherwise. 

Each grade will be assigned designated age groups:

Deadline to bring toys: May 3rd

With your support, you can bring joy to many children!
