Education Week

A special thank you goes out to the Education Week Committee who put together a fabulous week of events for all the students at Munden Park. The week started off with a scavenger hunt put together by Ms. Vulic and the students of the Random Acts of Kindness club ending with fabulous prizes. The week continued with a visit from a pilot, a presentation by the Region of Peel Wastebusters Team, a visit from a psychologist talking about her social psychology research, an Earth day community clean up and the delivering of our kindness letters to the community. The week ended off with some interactive leadership activities from a professor at Humber College. Wow! So much to do in such a short period of time.

3D Geometry

We have begun our unit on 3-D geometry. Using the Ontario Curriculum, students collaborated to develop learning goals and developed a learning plan for how to achieve those goals. Students actually took this process a step further and developed their own unit end culminating activity.


For this unit we will be covering the following topics: identifying 3D shapes, identifying 3D shapes by their nets, constructing 3D shapes, identifying directions and locating objects on a map using cardinal directions.

Students are currently working on synthesizing and analyzing the information they have collected and are in the beginning stages of putting together their final presentations. Stay tuned for updates.
