Cuban Missile Crisis

Dan’s Politics class started a re-enactment of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Students divided up into American and Russian teams, with each taking on the role of a historical figure, to strategize a way to obtain their country’s objectives. Good luck, everyone! Try not to start World War III. 馃檪

A visit from ET the Mime

Karin’s Drama class hosted a mime workshop by Etenem Oton from STATUES ALIVE.

Etenem says:

I don’t know where to begin! I have to say I had one of the best times ever with a group of students. Your class was very attentive, polite, creative and fun. Please let them know that i had a wonderful time teaching them and I was extremely proud of them. I didn’t want to leave lol!”

Politics: What would YOU do?

Dan’s Grade 12 Politics class put themselves in the shoes of some prominent World War II figures. Students were tasked with advising President Truman on whether to drop the atom bombs on Japan in August, 1945, and reenacted the聽1938 Munich Agreement.
