PIC has organized our Parent Information Fair to be held on Thursday, April 20 at the Ciociaro Club. This event is part of our Regional Parent Reaching Out Grant. The goal is to host local agencies, programs and organizations all in one place so parents can attend to see what resources and services are available to assist them and their school aged children.
This past weekend, the national semi-finals for the Confederation Cup Debate Tournament took place in Toronto. This tournament involved all the top qualifying teams from Ontario and Quebec. Through 5 rounds of debate, Assumption's Evan Tanovich and Taylor Christou ended up in 3rd place overall which earns them a berth in the national final. They are among 4 teams in the Ontario/Quebec region and will be facing the 4 qualifiers from the Vancouver, Winnipeg and Halifax regions for the national championships in Ottawa. Individually, their speaker scores were 5th and 6th place in the tournament. No other team had both members in the top 6.
The team, which also included Mirna Eshaya and Deep Sandhu, racked up wins against powerhouse pairings from Upper Canada College, WOSS and U of T Private School, among others.
This amazing accomplishment is a testament to the great education they've received across a range many courses. Topics included Canadian content in art/literature curriculum, subsidies for the energy sector and recall elections. A special thanks goes to Kim Pearce for her help in research and constructing arguments for two topics which examined the government's ongoing role in providing reparations for our Aboriginal population.
Mirna literally spent the afternoon in Kathleen Wynne's desk at Queen's Park. I promise we didn't leave behind any notes!!
