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.

Grade 6 Primary Years
Programme Exhibition 2016

The CWA Grade 6 students’ PYP exhibition about the Human Rights Declaration and its application on January 21, 2016 was a great success.

Students inquired about the Human Rights Declaration, the organizations with the mandate to protect the Human Rights, and the application of the Human Rights Declaration around the world.

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 on their different topics. A variety of topics were explored: the right of opinion, child’ justice, security in times of war and many more. 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 General Director, Mr. M. Chechile, the Chairperson, Mrs. S. Stein Day and Mr. T. Rhymes, Senior Director form the Lester B. Pearson School Board. Everyone who attended gained information on diverse articles that are part of the Declaration of Human Rights, how sometimes they are violated and encourage everyone to take action and “Be the Change”.  

We hope students will take action and continue to inform their community.

Congratulations for a job well done Grade 6!

CWA Celebrates
«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.
