Hey guys, it’s the end of yet another school year which means yet another year to reflect on and to share that reflection in a TPol. In fact this is my last TPol I will ever have to do! Sadly, that means that next year I will be consumed with preparing for a 30 minute… Continue Reading T-t-t-t-TPol’s!!!
Hey guys, the final project of the year has finally come to a close which means it’s time for the final blog post of my grade 11 year.

Specifically, on poetry, songs,… Continue Reading Songs of the Soul
The Winter Exhibition has come and gone once again and with it, our main project for the semester.

However, that’s not really the full extent… Continue Reading Hiroshima and The Weight of Morals

I’m also sure many of you have also read the book Hiroshima by John Hersey and… Continue Reading Is Hiroshima Still Relevant Today?
Planes are not something one often thinks about in their day to day lives, they offer transportation around the world for both people and things and for many that is all the thought towards them that they deserve. Planes have become an everyday part of society, so much so that it’s almost impossible to imagine… Continue Reading How the Airplane Changed the World
