GUEST SPEAKERS!

Reflecting back on the year so far, I realise that we have had some very interesting guest speakers in our classroom.

Before the break, we had:
Major Ryan from Base Borden to talk about Remembrance Day
Ani, the Gr 8 student from Orillia and creator of the awesome recycled dress!
Jeff, photographer, who turned that awesome recycled dress into a photographic work of art!
Margaret, from the Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition

And yesterday we had:
MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) presentation and
Denise and Glenn from the SCDSB Equity and Inclusion Team

And there are a few more planned before the end of the year...

Wow, that's 5 people so far in 5 months!

Here are some photos from yesterday's presenters:

MADD presented a video on the hazards of driving while under the influence. A discussion followed.




Denise presented on how art can be used to present a message on social change.




Glenn showed students how to use Piktochart to create infographics.





Both are skills students will need to utilise in their Change Agent projects.

Thank you to these amazing presenters! We appreciate your coming in and enriching our classroom experience.
