SWIS visiting the Children and Youth Centre
In collaboration with the team of the Children and Youth Centre, Western Technical supportive VP Lindsay, and the ESL skillful and seasoned teacher Pamela Evans, Grade 10 & 11 Students had a trip to our Children & Youth Centre on April 12
th. Students were introduced to the youth Centre, and a presentation was delivered on the services provided by CultureLink and the opportunities youth have to develop their skills and knowledge.
In addition, students spent quality time on leadership activities which themselves found very helpful and skillful. One of the activities was presenting and marketing different items, where students collaborated to write a commercial describing the items, working their way through to find suitable vocabulary that would best describe the item and trying to think outside the box. Another activity, students used marshmallows & spaghetti to make 3D shapes, that was a blast for everyone among the 3 teams, and prizes were given to the best leaders among the groups.
