The drama performance that depicted the Finding of the True Cross was amusing, informative and very well performed to the last detail in its acts and costume.

    Who are You? Grade 6 Identity Display

    The first Grade 6 Humanities Inquiry Project is entitled, "Who are You: An Identity Display." Grade 6 students looked at how their cultural and family backgrounds influence their identities. This kicks off their year-long exploration into individuals and societies both in the past and present.

    In this project, students became anthropologists with the aim of studying how culture influences identity. They chose a tradition, celebration, custom or event important to their families and created a display complete with real artifacts and detailed explanations. On display for this week and next!
