It’s Winter Carnival Week at GCS and we have planned a number of fun theme days and activities. Please take note of the following announcements:
Winter Carnival Theme Days:
Students are encouraged to come dressed for theme days but to honour our school dress-code of- Clean, Neat & Appropriate. Monday’s theme day is PJ Day (Come dressed in your slippers and comfy pajamas). Watch for GCS social media posts to find out what theme days are planned for the rest of the week.
Students are to choose a topic that interests them. Their topic must have a Canadian theme such as history, geography or heritage, whether it is local, national, or international. Guiding their research is the essential question: Why should this topic, even in 2020, still be considered important for Canadians to consider? A Heritage Fair project involves much more than doing research on a topic of interest. It also involves putting the research to work. In this case, the information found will go toward the making of a visual display, oral presentation, and an interview. In-class presentations will be on March 25th and 26th and the Heritage Fair will be on March 30th.
