The Project Lit Community Book Club continues to meet monthly at lunch in the library to discuss Project Lit recommended titles. Here is the line up for 2021/2022!
Before spring break, the MakerSpace CORE Club had the chance to hear from a guest speaker from Lee Verage which uses Fusion360, Autodesk’s 3D modelling software that students are learning to use, in a workplace setting. He spoke about the need for designers to create products that are durable, recyclable, customizable, and repairable to keep up with population demands in a way that respects God’s earth and avoids the depletion of natural resources. He challenged RCS student makers to consider what role they might play in a more sustainably designed future!
Ms. Pershin’s Social Studies 9 students spent time researching a variety of environmental issues then showed their learning in a creative art form. Here are some of their amazing projects on topics ranging from over fishing, water pollution, desertification and more.
It was a pleasure for the SC Library Learning Commons to host Law 12 guest speakers again this year. We had two parents from our community generously give of their time to share with Ms. Pershin’s students their real life experience with law and order in our community. Constable Ben Wong Moon with the Vancouver Police Department, returned to share again this year on Criminal Law and policing. Larry Yen, a lawyer at Boughton Law Corporation, shared with the students about Corporate Law and his 23 years in the field. Both were enriching opportunities for students to see how the concepts they are learning about are lived out by professionals in the field. A big thank-you to both these parents!
Mrs. Tinsley’s Art 11/12 students have painted some beautiful landscapes on display now on in the Library Learning Commons. Come sit in a comfy chair and read a good book while you enjoy the view!
This week the Makerspace CORE Club will try their hand at making beaded jewelery. Here are some videos for inspiration:
Ms. Toteda’s English 9 classes visited the library to check out some amazing non-fiction reads on a variety of topics that interest them, then wrote reviews to share with peers! Mrs. Memmott has been enjoying reading all their recommendations. Click on the covers below to read a few yourself.
