This optional course examines agriculture in three general ways: we examine the science behind the production of plants and animals for food. We also examine the issues, whatever they happen to be at the time, related to agriculture in Manitoba’s southeast. Lastly, to link farming and food, we have many food labs to make understanding this connection both tasty and relevant.
In addition to skills acquired in Band 20S, students will continue to develop and extend range and refine articulations on their instrument of choice, extend use of rhythmic notation to include increasingly complex patterns and continue their efforts to become discerning consumers and producers of music. Attendance is again required at all Concert events, and possibly an end of year Concert Tour, as planned by the music department. Be prepared for solo performances in front of your peers. Prerequisite: Band 20S
This course involves rehearsing and performing a wide variety of music, providing a basis for growth in basic playing techniques: good posture, breath control, phrasing and articulation. You will be required to participate in all Concert Performances, including Christmas Concerts, School Assemblies, local Music Festivals, and possibly an end of year Concert Tour, as planned by the music department. Much of your mark will be determined by the perception of your in-class performance, as well as solo performance tests.
This course is a study of the human body and wellness. This course looks in depth at the body systems, looks at how the systems are maintained and implications of mistreating these systems. This course demands daily study and memorization of many new terms and diagrams. There is a lab exam and a written exam in this course.
Prerequisite: Science 20F
This course is designed to introduce and develop some of the basic concepts in chemistry and to promote an understanding of the relationship between chemistry, technology, and their impact upon the individual and society. Content includes physical properties and changes, chemical reactions, solubility, gases, and organic chemistry.
Prerequisite: Science 20F and
Co-requisite: Pre-calculus Math 30S or Applied Math 30S
This class is for students who want to get their hands dirty and learn the skills that scientists use. Students will learn how to apply scientific methods to answer questions about the world around them. The course is designed to answer the question “How do we use science to answer questions about the natural world?”
Topics may include the history of science, lab work, and outdoor field science skills. Students will use scientific methods to answer real-world questions in ecology, agriculture science, environmental science and topics that interest the class.
Prerequisite: Science 20F
Level 2 course is an advanced course where students will be studying the how and why of different cooking techniques. They will learn about making things from scratch such as soups, sauces, pasta, breads, and dressings. Projects will include recipe and menu development, nutrition for different needs, and developing a cooking show. This course is very hands on and students are expected to research and learn about new topics.
French 30S is intended to further develop students’ skills; conversational, and written in French as a second language. French is used as the language of instruction. Emphasis is placed on usage of past, present and future tenses as well as others. Students explore topics relevant to their life, as well as art, music, technology, and more. There is a heavier focus on spontaneous communication. Students are expected to try to use French as much as possible. Prerequisite: French 20G
Is it right to lie in order to save a life? Should abortion be made illegal? Are wars ever morally justifiable? These and other challenging ethical problems will be examined in this course.
Since ethics is about determining what is right and wrong, it clearly has a major impact on how people live their lives. Students will learn how the Christian faith can be looked at as a practical and realistic way to address life’s greatest challenges. In order to help develop critical thinking skills, students will be exposed to a wide variety of viewpoints and perspectives throughout this course.
This course looks at the fundamental laws that govern the natural world; physics serves as a foundation upon which a tremendous diversity of studies and careers are built. The relationships in physics are studied in four different modes, physical/conceptual, numeric, graphical, and symbolic. Topics covered in this course are measurement, vectors, mechanics, fields and waves.
Prerequisite: Science 20F
Co-requisite: Pre-Calculus 30S or Applied 30S
This course further develops and refines those skills learned in Art 20S. The practical assignments in this course will reflect the greater flexibility the student possesses in terms of exercising options on the basis of expressed personal preferences. Thus, while there will still be certain assignments which must be completed by all students, individual projects will come to the forefront, utilizing the art inquiry process. Some of the components of the course are: photography, art history, pointillism and sketching. There will be a major research essay and a final exam in the course. Maintaining an Idea Journal/Sketchbook is an integral part of the course. Prerequisite: Art 10 or 20 or written permission from instructor.
This course focuses on the elements of design, coaching students how to question a given problem or need considering ideas such as empathy in design, material choice, required skills, budgeting along with many other elements. Students will design and build a project of their own choice using various resources in the lab with focus on the design of a given object rather than construction and building techniques.
This course provides an opportunity for students to better understand the role music has played in shaping North American culture since World War Two. Not only will students be afforded greater appreciation of popular music but they will also examine how music has been a primary driver of change over time. Our students are constantly engaging with technology and have access to more music than any previous generation. A course like this can offer insights into the power of music as a shaping force of personal identity, pop culture, internet memes, and culture.
