Congratulations to all of our Grade 8 Students on the completion on the Secondary School selection process. The class of 2015 has received a plethora of acceptances from boarding schools, day schools and area public high schools. The process is marked with several stages of self-evaluation, collaboration, consultation, and transformation.
Some of you may have been fortunate in your lives to be coached by someone whose face still creeps into your thoughts when the topic of playing sports comes up in conversation. We remember the championships or the races won, the heartbreak of losing a final and of course the great friendships made along the way. Behind these moments, all of them, is a coach and much like teacher, they outside of the parents, have the greatest impact in a child's life. A coach can simply 'make' or 'break' the potential of a child.
Last week, the Grade 4 ME students had the amazing opportunity to take a break from the challenging pace of their impressive exhibition journey to pause and remember how to be mindful and present.
From brainstorming characters and settings to the completion of a series of short animations following the adventures of a small pom-pom--the collaboration between art and technology is inspiring.
"You will change your world."
This sentiment shared by the United Nations Grenada Ambassador (as shared via Twitter) was embraced by the participants at the Montessori Model UN that convened March 25-28 in New York City. Whitby delegates, representing China, made their presence known, joining other schools in a four-day conference exchanging ideas, solutions, and proposals that were inspiring to those in attendance.
