Star Wars Exhibition

To wrap up both the first term and 2017 itself, PLP held its annual Winter Exhibtion, a night in which PLP students showcase the projects they have been preparing. The topic of your project depends on what grade you are in. For instance, this year, the grade 8 and 9s topic was Star Wars, and…

Máquina de Metáfora

For the past month or so, me and my classmates have been working on a PLP classic project; Metaphor Machines. Our task was to choose a revolution, then build a Rube Goldberg machine in which each action on the machine was a metaphor for something that happened in our revolution. My group which consisted of…

“ Steampunk “

After learning the basics of Steampunk, and what it’s about, me and my classmates job was to come up with a inquiry question relating to a more specific, detailed subcategory of the genre itself. I started to brainstorm about very specific ideas, and then I thought to myself, “Why don’t I ask myself one of…

This Didn’t Go To Plan…

Common Sense Is Rule #1

One of our very first assignments in Science 9 was to comprise 3-5 videos, each focusing on one specific way to be safe during a science lab. This was obviously an assignment made to help us understand and prepare for future labs, but also to help us further our skills when it comes to making…

I’m Gonna Need A New Bucket List

More of a vacation than anything, PLP’s latest “field study” was a good time, needless to say. In between the driving, and the constant exhaustion, were many experiences I really hope I remember for a long time. From escaping the ‘Locked Room’, to riding a boat in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever…

The Year In Review

This year was a fresh start, a new life for me to build and navigate, and can I just say, I think I did a damn good job. Starting off by scratching everything I knew about school, and focussing on a new way of learning, I instantly felt the difference. I remember walking to school…
