THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE BIZARRE

THE GOOD:

The Royal Cana­dian Le­gion awarded Jaque­line McDon­ald sec­ond place in their na­tion­wide hunt for a piece of po­etry or art­work that re­flected the tra­di­tion of re­mem­brance (of armed forces who have died in the line of duty) amongst Cana­di­ans. Not only did McDon­ald, who is a stu­dent at Coun­try Day School, in King City, re­ceive a plaque and a cheque, but her piece was fea­tured on dis­play at the Cana­dian War Mu­seum on Canada Day.

THE BAD:

The Cana­dian In­ter­na­tional School in Hong Kong is a pri­vate school that, up un­til now, had been the epit­ome of what an ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion should be. The once beau­ti­ful, flour­ish­ing pri­vate school has now lost its head of school, two prin­ci­pals, a vice-prin­ci­pal and their di­rec­tor of busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion as well as seven peo­ple on the board of gover­nors, in a dis­pute over who should be gov­ern­ing the in­sti­tu­tion.

THE BIZARRE:

A few stu­dents from the Bishop Stra­chan School’s ro­bot­ics team de­cided to give their fel­low stu­dents a hand dur­ing ex­ams — lit­er­ally. The team put their in­no­va­tive minds to work and came up with a high-five ma­chine to celebrate their hard work. Stu­dents could press the but­ton on the ma­chine, and a hand would pop up au­to­mat­i­cally to present said high-five.
