Be­fore launch­ing into sec­ondary school next year, stu­dents at St. Bene­dict Catholic Sec­ondary School and St. James had a chance to ex­plore both art and sci­ence labs at the high school this week. In Sci­ence, Mr. O’Don­nell taught the stu­dents how to con­duct them­selves in a lab while dis­sect­ing a frog. The stu­dents learned safety and anatomy, while at the same time stu­dents cre­ated can­vassed art with Mr. Tim­pano in the art room. Stu­dents Macken­zie Richard and Brenna Vi­en­neau weren’t shy about the dis­sec­tion lab with Brenna tak­ing the first cut. She says she is not afraid be­cause she has cleaned deer and par­tridge in the past with fam­ily.
