Art (Art Attack)

Let your inner artist show off your creativity!

You will be using a variety of tools, materials, and media to create several projects. This art course focuses on the major components of visual learning: Colour, Drawings, Theme, and Composition, combined with many hands on opportunities. Water Colour, pastels, tempera & acrylic paints, and other mediums will be experimented with. 

CTF Communication Technology

Discover and develop skills related to technologies used to design, construct and relay a message for the purpose of connecting, informing, entertaining or selling products.

  • project-planning skills to media/audio/video/print projects
  • skills required for preparing and delivering presentations using media of choice
  • effective web design
  • the role of typography in visual messages 
  • animation styles and techniques

CTF Technology (Robots in Our Lives)

Robots have quickly become an accepted, and sometimes controversial, part of our everyday lives from exploring the ocean floor to performing surgery. In Robots in Our Lives, students will study how robots have integrated society, research their use and plan and construct a robot designed to perform a specific function. All students will be expected to make a final presentation to the class.

Leadership / Service

This option class is designed to have students in grade 7-9 to focus on building and improving the school community. As a leadership student, you will have many opportunities to discover your personal leadership style, and learn teamwork. These skills can be applied on a person basis, in peer groups, family, and in school. Students who take leadership will develop, refine and model their communication, conflict resolution and critical thinking skills. Leadership students will participate, plan and execute whole school activities that strengthen our school community. Possible themes to be covered may include: bullying prevention, mindfulness, mentorship, global citizenship, volunteerism in local community, social justice, and team building.

Performing Arts (The Spoken Word)

Do you want to find your voice? Or you know your voice, but you want to explore it, hone it, and express it in your own unique style? In this course, we will experiment with the spoken word through poetry. Slam poetry, rap, chanting, and song writing will be some of the different forms that you will have the opportunity to explore and experiment with. There will be an expectation of the students to participate, share, and produce their pieces on a regular basis.

Yoga

In this course, students will experience and learn about the health benefits of yoga and develop their well-being and personal management skills. We will be introduced to different philosophical and psychological concepts of yoga as well as gain a familiarity with various asanas and vinyasas (flow and movement). Yoga Nidra, Ashtanga yoga, and Yin yoga are some different styles of yoga that we will practice. Research, reflections and journaling will be a constant throughout. The main aim of the course will be to build a strong foundation for further practice.
