Japanese Students visit CWA for 4th Year in a Row
On March 22nd, 2017, for the 4th year in a row, Japanese students that are taking English classes at McGill University have given various presentations to our CWA students. Teachers and students were enthusiastic to learn more about the Japanese culture, its beliefs and values.
The CWA Grade 6 students’ PYP exhibition about Humans’ vital relationship with food, on February 16, 2017 was a great success.
Students inquired about the production and commercialization of food, the connection between the food and our health and the interconnectedness of food and global issues.
Their presentations clearly demonstrated that they were knowledgeable and great communicators. Students were engaged in a collaborative process since the month of November. They were able to communicate effectively, in English and French, about different topics. A variety of topics related to food were explored: business, marketing, packaging, restaurants, transport, transformation, prices, allergies, digestive system, GMO, pesticides, etc. This exhibition had a positive impact on the students, the teachers and our CWA community.
This year we had the pleasure to have amongst our guests the Director General, Mr. M. Chechile, the Chairperson, Mr. T. Rhymes, Senior Director and Mr. D. Meloche, Regional Director from the Lester B. Pearson School Board. Everyone who attended gained information on the diverse topics.
We hope students will take action and continue to inform their community.
Congratulations for a job well done Grade 6!

Visite du conteur Éric Michaud à CWA
Mardi le 31 janvier 2017, nous avons eu le bonheur de recevoir la visite de M. Éric Michaud, conteur et parent d’un élève de CWA!
C’est sur un ton humoristique qu’il a présenté à nos élèves, des histoires rocambolesques tirées du folklore.
Les élèves et enseignant(e)s ont été captivés par ses histoires adaptées aux niveaux des élèves.
De la part du personnel et des élèves de CWA nous voulons le remercier d’avoir passé un si bon moment en sa compagnie!

Japanese Students visit CWA
Once again this
year, we were happy to be the host for 25
Japanese students who are attending McGill
University to improve their English skills.
Their presentations were all related to our units of inquiry which gave our
students the chance to compare and understand how the same topic can be
interpreted and lived differently in another country.
We hope to be able to continue this very valuable partnership with McGill
University in the years to come.

«International Dot Day»!
On September 15th, Students
and Teachers celebrated “International Dot Day”.
International Dot Day,
a global celebration of creativity, courage and
collaboration, began when teacher Terry
Shay introduced his classroom to Peter
H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on
September 15, 2009.
The Dot is the
story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting
student to trust in her own abilities by being
brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins
with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a
breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting
a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which
has gone on to inspire countless children and
adults around the globe.
