Due to the snow storm North Star Academy Laval will be closed on Wednesday March 15th.
On March 1st secondary 1, 2, and 4 students went to see the Chagall colour and music exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. After a guided tour, an art activity, and lunch, each level had their own “treasure hunt ” in a different part of the museum.
It was tremendously enriching and we will post photos of the students inspired by Chagall’s work just as soon as some are finished.
On February 28th, NSA took part in Montreal’s Speak Up poetry competition for the very first time. Our students were up against over 25 very talented individuals from 4 schools, and still managed to take home the gold medals in both the individual and group categories. What an outstanding success for NSA, especially given that many of the competitors were more experienced than our students. A huge congratulations to our winners, Mary Zoi, Shan-Li, Audrey, and Riwa, as well as Yasmine and Danica for competing. You are all winners and have made the school so proud. A big thank you to Ms. Raskin for organizing the school’s involvement in the competition and Ms. Ranallo for supporting participation amongst her classes.
It’s that time of year again – time for Grad Committee’s annual Italian Dinner! This event is always a highlight of the year: pasta, salad, coffee, dessert, music, games, and prizes to be won. What’s more, you get to enjoy all of this while being waited on by your grads! This event is crucial in helping the secondary 5’s fund their prom. Tickets are $20 each, or 2 for $30. We look forward to seeing you there!
On March 3rd, the winners from the in-class public speaking competitions will showcase their persuasive abilities in the schoolwide public speaking competition. Parents and family members of the competitors are welcome to come watch. Please email Ms. Ranallo, for more info!
