THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE BIZARRE

THE GOOD:

Be­fore Poké­mon Go there was Poké­mon the card game, and Toronto holds claim to be­ing home to the top-ranked ju­nior player in North Amer­ica. Tenyear-old Adam Omar­ali from North Toronto has won card game tour­na­ments across Canada and the U.S., and at press time, he was set to par­tic­i­pate in the Poké­mon World Cham­pi­onships in San Fran­cisco. The prize? A $25,000 con­tri­bu­tion to­ward post­sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion.

THE BAD:

Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey by the Centre for Ad­dic­tion and Men­tal Health in Toronto, stress lev­els in On­tario mid­dle school and high school stu­dents are on the rise. The sur­vey says that last year more than one in three stu­dents in grades 7 to 12 re­ported symp­toms of psy­cho­log­i­cal dis­tress. That is a 10 per cent jump from the last study, which was con­ducted two years ear­lier. More than 10,400 stu­dents from 220 schools par­tic­i­pated in the sur­vey.

THE BIZARRE:

A group of high school stu­dents from an On­tario sec­ondary school pulled off the ul­ti­mate grad­u­a­tion prank. They used an in­tri­cate pul­ley sys­tem to as­sem­ble the ex­te­rior of a car — a Jaguar S-Type — on the roof of their school. The ic­ing on the cake was plac­ing the school mas­cot, Bald­win the Ea­gle, in the driver’s seat. Even the school prin­ci­pal was seen laugh­ing at the elab­o­rate stunt.
