Guest from Parliament
Senator Pana Merchant joined us yesterday for the morning. This is her second visit to the school, the first visit was three years ago when the school first opened. She shared some of her experiences and the students were able to introduce themselves to her.
We had a great morning at the Canadian Western Agribition. Students were asked to interview different people throughout the day and will be asked to write their own news article. This news article idea was such a hit that a member of CTV followed us around and there will be a story on the news about our students!
Croft electric came out to our school and showed the students how to make electrical cables. The students were also able to ask about different career opportunities. Thank you Croft Electric!
Welcome Don Doll, SJ
The students were joined by Don Doll, SJ today. Don Doll is a National Geographic photographer and has been working at Creighton University since 1969. He is a professor of journalism and holds the Charles and Mary Heider Jesuit Chair.
Throughout the past few days the students were involved in Maker Faire, "Maker Faire is an event created by Make magazine to "celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset".
Students were able to design, problem solve and build a prototype of something that would help someone in Jamaica or Haiti. At the end of today students presented their products to each other. We were then joined by a group from the University who had done a similar activity.
Students have been involved with Band Days for the past few days. They have been playing songs as individuals as well as in duets and trios. Good luck to all the musicians today and tomorrow!
