Grade Eights, Lookin Ahead!!

During the couple of months since school began, the grade eights have been preparing for High School. -Anonymous Well of course, the first step is choosing a High School, and to help them out, our grade eights took several trips to the home schools in the area. First to Central Commerce where we enjoyed a tour and a play by Shakespeare in Action. Our next school was Central Tech where we spent a half day touring the huge buildings that offered so many learning opportunities! We also visited Jarvis Collegiate just up the road where many other schools came too, so everyone had a chance to see old friends! We also were taught in different classes just similar to the way a class is taught on a regular day!! What will you choose!!

Central Tech was good but I don't think I would go there.

Winchester Sr. Boys VolleyballTeam Make It!!
Dante Scholar This year our senior boys volleyball team made it to the semi-finals with an undefeated season. They had won against King Edwards and Duke of Connaught. They also had a forfeit win against Jesse Ketchum, and had won another game against Ryerson that was played during the quarter-finals and ultimately didn't count. Now all we can do is hope for the team to get another banner for our school!
