The Grade 12 class has been busy planning for their grad this year with the help of Ms. Prakash. Many are also getting excited and prepared for the upcoming Culture Club trip, which seems to be approaching very fast. In Physics, we are preparing for our first test, and we are all SO EXCITED…In Biology, we are making created diagrams of animal and plant cells. In ELA, we are presenting our Slam Poems and Advertisements society’s perception of beauty. So far, all of them have been very well done. The other ELA class has been watching a documentary called I Am, which is very eye opening.
Once upon a time, there was a group of Grade 12 students who were starting their last semester of school. These students were separated into two groups: the first group had English first thing in the morning and learned about Inner Beauty and how society shapes our thoughts on what beauty means, while the second group made resumés in preparation for their future. Every day after English, the first group took a treacherous journey across the dreaded hallway to Prakashland to learn about Physics and Kinematics. Some of these Grade 12’s were brave enough to risk the perils of Calculus, but before they could face that feared Mathematical Dragon, they needed to review and practice their previous Math training. Biology was considered to be of use for both groups of students, so all declared “Yes, we will Biologize!” And they did, by exploring the building blocks that make up the Human Body. Amidst all of this rigorous learning, the youthful Grade 12’s kept themselves in top shape in Physical Education. They also set forth on their most exciting adventure yet: Planning Graduation. Oh the wonders of being in Grade 12. The End.
First semester is slowly coming to an end which means finals are slowly creeping up on us. In English and History, we are learning bout the history of our great prairie provinces and the hard times they went through. We are finishing up our last unit on “The need for proof” and new getting ready for our big final exam in Math. In Chemistry we are lighting things up by learning about Electrochemistry, which is harder than you think. In Home Ec. We are getting ready to live on our own by learning how to cook inexpensive meals and live on a budget. The Life Trans. students just returned from a field trip to the Food bank, where they learned about the benefits of volunteering. In I.A. they are working hard to finish their projects.
Christmas break is almost here and this year has been flying by. We have been very busy in the first half of our senior year and we are very excited to be done writing finals and to start planning grad. In English, we have finished writing our Three Day Road essays and are now forming our own ver- sion of Canada. In Chemistry, we are learning about Acids and Bases, and in Math we just wrote a test on Conics. In Home Ec and IA, we are finishing up on the projects of our choice. We are very excited for Christmas Break and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
