The grade 12 Data Management class showcased their knowledge of probability by creating their own Game of Chance as part of their culminating activity. Grade 5, 6 and 8 students were invited to come and try the games while the Data Management students gathered experimental data. A few lucky students were successful, while others learned of the difficulties in winning at casino style games.


 The Health and Wellness Fair was held on Friday 29th May and involved the Grade 12 Food and Nutrition class and Grades 5 & 6 classes.

There were activity displays where students were invited to join in.  Peter chatted with students about cycling, Joanne gave yoga sessions, Marie had fun with kick boxing, and Jordan got them going with Wii activity games.

The food lab was a hive of activity as the students made Salad in a Jar, Smoothies, Muffins, Fruit Kabobs and Pizza.  The students also ran through obstacle courses out in the courtyard.

Thanks to everyone who helped and to all the participants especially the PTA members who assisted in the food lab!
