A part of our new PSE unit has been about online bullying and how we as bystanders, instigators, and receivers can act. First off I think that a lot of the time there can be different intentions behind every comment, photo, or message that may be classified as bullying. Something I’ve come to realize is […]
Fusion is an application that allows the user to develop a product through modeling it. It is a core part of the DT curriculum and a useful skill to have in general. My task was to model the design of my product (the alarm clock) and develop the shape and form over a couple of […]
Now that we’ve entered phase two, the tennis courts are back open and I can start playing tennis again. I played on Friday with a friend and it was clear I had a lot to improve on. Over the course of this summer, I will be logging my Tennis playing this summer for NYAA.
Grade 9 is about to come to end and I wanted to write a reflection that I can look back upon to measure my growth in my goals. I started off grade 9 a little uncertain about what I was passionate about and what I exactly wanted to pursue. But throughout the year I’ve taken […]
At the beginning of this school year, I took on the project of building my own custom PC. The process involved a lot of research, planning, and problem-solving. I’m glad to say though I was able to work around the problems I encountered, and in the end, the experience is actually one of the factors […]
Recently I chose my major project for the Systems and Controls course and since then I’ve been doing research on the different aspects of the project as a whole. My choice was to build an Alarm clock for my mom and in my research, I’ve discovered several different ways to do this. One of them […]
Recently I just finished my empathic essay which is an essay that we write from the perspective of a character from the book Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The character I chose was Jaja and I chose him because I felt I understood his motivation the most. At least enough to put it into […]
Sworkit is a site I was introduced to in PE during the home learning period. It creates workouts focusing on specific sections of the body depending on the user and now I intend to use it outside of school. This will help me not only in Tennis but also in any other sport I choose to pursue.

I haven’t done Sworkit in a while since the Tennis courts opened and I realised that I still want to do it occassionally though not as often
Your Title Goes Here
I focused entirely on core this time and I realised while individually and for short times I am capable of doing the excersises. I can’t do them one after the other, especially when I have one intense one (like push up variations) right after another one.
Retrospective Reflection- Think back to some key learning you have had in the process of doing monologues. What was significant for you? Our monologue task involved a lot of creative thinking as we had to develop actions and tone base on what we thought of our character. This pushed me to do research on my […]
During the lockdown, I’ve heard from several who have struggled to adjust to online learning. I think that for me the change wasn’t too hard though it definitely has impacted my learning. In my opinion, learning online is harder than in class but for me, the main problem is that I think we’re doing work […]
