It’s Grad Fads! Have you ever wondered what it takes to do blood tests? A urinalysis or even water treatment? Mr. Sidhu's chem class is practicing these methods with strong acids & creating the base needed to neutralize it! Spending that much time in the lab is sure to build Chemistry... Ms. Zaine's Leadership Class has been busy this quarter preparing for their future, completing their Digital Skills Portfolios, and fine tuning their Leadership skills. They've supported Richmond’s Women Helping Women Foundation, Maple Senior’s Centre, and BC Children’s Hospital to name just a few.  Within the school, our Leaders were busy planning Grade 8 Day, coordinating our Virtual Grade 7 orientation, school clean ups, delivering fruit + veggies, daily announcements, (not grad fads,) and finally, working with the City Hall all year long to bring our beautiful school mural to life. You all truly made it an exceptional year! Congratulations!
