Sixteen students from grades 9-12 attended the Skills Ontario conference for Young Women in Toronto on May 8th. Students were inspired by a mentor panel of females who explained their challenges and successes working in the areas of Plumbing, Construction, Manufacturing, and Hairstyling & Esthetics. Keynote speaker and CEO Mandy Rennehan challenged students to re-think "the collar blue" when she explained how "one woman in the skilled trades is an army." Mandy's success story showed our students that they can accomplish anything by being true to themselves and working hard.
During the week of May 7th, students from the "Social Change Makers" group organized a Red Dress Project event to raise awarness of the many Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Canada.

On Monday, Sarah Dunkly, a member of the Ontario Native Women's Association visited to share her work with the students and to present a small gift.

They worked together in teams of two to show their kitchen safety skills, creative abilities, ability to follow a recipe and self-assessment skills. The teachers took a step back today and watched as took ownership of the process!

Today CHSS Student Council crowned the winner of the our first annual Reindeer Hunt. This year's winner, Brooke Kearns, dressed up as Santa Claus to disguse herself and take the victory. Runner up, Austin Newans was an excellent foe, but conceded that Brooke's effort caught him by surprise!
Thanks to Ms. Young and Ms. Kyle as well as the student council members who organized the hunt.
Grade 12 Geography students have been participating in a #20Time Project.
