International Day of Pink

April 11, 2018 marks the International Day of Pink. It celebrates diversity and raises awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, and all forms of bullying. SOLE students and teachers broke out their pink clothes to make a stand for inclusive and safe spaces.

Congratulations, Nina!

Nina was invited to compete for an entrance scholarship at Tyndale in March, and on Friday, her name was announced as the winner. They were very impressed by her in the interview and with her essay on a book she had read.

This award will open up more opportunities for Nina, as she will be sought out for some leadership opportunities. Also, her tuition will free next year! She is thrilled of course…and her family and all of us at SOLE are so proud of her!

Here she is with Gary Nelson, the president of Tyndale at the ceremony.

Making crepes in World Cultures

Rachel and Christina’s World Cultures class made crepes. This French classic is easier than you think with the right equipment and/or a willingness to experiment. Ooh la la!

Making tacos in World Cultures

Everyone likes tacos, but how much do you really know about them? Popular across Mexico, traditional tacos are a fusion of indigenous Aztec and and Spanish cuisine, but the hard shell tacos are a relatively new invention, dating back to the end of the 19th century. Rachel and Christina’s World Cultures class discussed the cultural history of this most delicious food while making refried bean and beef tacos. Yum!

Making hummus with Christina

Rachel and Christina’s World Cultures classes made hummus, a delicious chickpea dip that’s a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine and every potluck you’ve ever attended. The right combination of spices (and way more garlic than the recipe says) and a few seconds in the blender, and you’re good to go. A special thanks to MPC’s Chef for letting us use his kitchen.christina showing everyone how to test how ripe and avocado is
