There are many ways students at the Middle School develop and demonstrate their leadership skills. The focus through Grades 6-8 is really establishing a foundation of character development and supporting students learning about themselves. This is an important stage in one’s growth. The Middle School provides a caring environment for students to challenge and stretch themselves.

There are many extracurricular opportunities offered at the Middle School.

Canadian High School Model United Nations – March 2 – 4, 2012

http://www.cahsmun.org/

Students in grade 8 are invited to join the Senior School delegation at the Canadian High School Model United Nations. This is an exciting “hands on” opportunity to experience the inner workings of the UN. Students will leave with a greater understanding and a global perspective by examining current and relevant issues in the world. In a safe and encouraging environment, students practice important skills such as effective debate, consensus building, and persuasive argument all while working alongside other students from our school and beyond.

More information will be communicated to students and parents next week.
