It has been 102 years since the guns fell silent on the Western Front. Across the School, we commemorated Remembrance Day, remembering those who gave their lives for our freedom.
Let them eat crêpe!
Oh, là là! Ms Jalili’s Year 9 Food Technology students have been channelling all things ‘français’ this week, making deliciously light, sweet and savoury crêpes.
This week, Kindergarten practically combusted with joy when they were given their first opportunity to cook in the Food Tech kitchen. And what was on the menu? Cookies with sprinkles of course!
Project Connect has been a wonderful way for our younger Wenonians to learn what the School was like in the past and forge connection with older alumnae, who have been forced to isolate due to COVID-19.
Responsible actions can change the world
At the end of this term, our Year 6 students will present a virtual PYP Exhibition, showcasing their learning as well as their commitment to hope and positive change.
