What’s Cooking?

It has been quite an unpredictable weather lately. Grade 6 students have been doing their own recording by constructing a barometer to find out how the atmospheric pressure is increasing and decreasing. Finally, to give it a rest, what could’ve been better than having a cuisine of one’s own. The grade six art was transformed into a cookery class in which students prepared their own recipes. They baked, cooked, fried, tossed, glazed and prepared toppings. It turned out to be a success. First prize went to Sarya and Mohamed for their cheese pizza, Soummaya was in the second place for her mouth watering apple streusel, and the third place went to Zoha for her hot sizzling vegetable rolls.

Science Fair

Alhamdu lillah, our Science Fair this year was once again a success.  23 projects and 28 children won bronze, silver or gold medallions and will be going on to the Windsor Regional Science Fair on April 3-5 at St. Clair College.

Take a look at some of our students’ awesome work!

Science Fair Success in the Making

Our school science fair is just around the corner. It’s a fun and exciting time for everyone, and gives us as parents and teachers a chance to really see the creativity of our children.  Much time is spent in teaching skills for success – skills that apply not only to this event, but to many other real-life circumstances in the future.

If you haven’t yet gotten your copy of the free ebook, 10 Insider Secrets to Science Fair Success, go to classroomkeys.com, fill in your name and email address and it will be sent to you immediately.   It will show you step by step what judges are looking for, and how to give a project a leading edge.   You’ll learn about how to take a common idea and make it into a winning one, and what’s important to include in a project’s presentation. You’ll find things here that definitely don’t show up in regular science fair project books.  And, for those students who will be representing our school at the regional fair, these tips are a must.

Check back here soon to meet our Science Fair winners and see a few pictures of their outstanding projects.  We’ll give you an update about them in a few days.

And if you have the chance, come visit our fair live and in person.  It will take place this coming Thursday, March 12 throughout the school day.  You may just be amazed at what you see!

Look at these kids!

We recently held our 12th Annual Qur’an Competition for our Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 students.  It was amazing to see young children memorizing the Allah’s words so well.  Here are a few photos for you.

And here are a few of our eldest competitors.
