  • Memories from Last Week's Temagami Canoe Trip

    The Temagami canoe trip was a trip filled with laughs, excitement, and relaxation. At first, the thought of five days with no phone was terrible, but once we realized that there is always something to do during the day we forgot all about it. For someone who has never been camping before for fear of sleeping next to a bear, I had the most memorable time and would definitely recommend the trip to anyone with a sense of adventure.

  • Gr. 12 Environment Students Engage in Mining Simulation

    Students in the Gr. 12 Environment and Resource Management course have worked in small groups to purchase a mine site and pay a reclamation bond. They mined their site over a series of 15 "years" making choices about exploration, investment in equipment, and the management of tailings, water sources, wildlife, and human settlement. They kept detailed accounting sheets which allowed them to chart profitability of their mine over time, explore the effectiveness of their investments, and examine how they used other resources once the most valuable minerals were depleted. Fines were issued for environmental damage and human rights violations. In the end, all mines turned a profit, all waterways were irreparably damaged, several fines were issued, and most sites were reclaimed effectively.
