Grade 1 students recently went on a fun and educational field trip that focused on depicting where we are in time and place. The students were shown how children’s lifestyles had changed. Years ago, toys did not look the way they do now. They were not even made of plastic. Usually they were fashioned from pieces of wood. The students learnt all this and got a chance to play with toys that were imitations of those used during the renaissance period.
The 7th grade has been having a very cultural couple of weeks. The art and social studies classes are collaborating for an interesting project. The students have been focusing on the Renaissance period and learning a lot about it in a very creative and special way. In their art and social studies classes, they have been creating their very own museum which will be open to the public to come by and appreciate!
The students of St. John’s Middle School sure have the right spirit of Christmas! In the hope of giving back to our community, they managed collecting toys and other items for a local Waterloo charity. The students put up posters around the school and spread the need for donations through word of mouth among their peers, and managed collecting enough stuff that needed to be loaded into two vans! Not only did fellow Middle School students donate, but so did High School students who recognized this great effort.
