"Tell me and I'll forget ... show me and I'll remember ... involve me and I'll understand."

                                                                                                             -Benjamin Franklin

The members of our Science Department share this philosophy, and believe a hands-on approach is the best way for us to share our love of Science and passion for teaching with our students. We maintain six fully equipped Science labs and share a 30 seat computer lab with our Mathematics Department. On going professional development, and membership to the Science Teachers' Association of Ontario, National Science Teachers Association and National Associations of Biology and Physics Teachers, keep us in tune with the latest instructional strategies and technologies. At the present time there are nine teachers in the Science Department, and each of us has completed Honours Specialist qualifications.

The members of our department are adopting Remind101, a one-way text messaging communication tool, to send important updates and reminders to our students.
