In Science, we are exploring current electricity. Outside in the courtyard, we created a simple model of how a circuit works. The battery moved the electrons, which were represented by ropes around the circuit. Ms. Bella was the battery, Nyah was the light bulb and the rest of the class were conductors. When the battery moved the rope, it caused electrons to move around the circuit. The circuit was only able to work because we were conductors allowing the rope to move. This battery has a negative and a positive end. The negative end repels electrons toward the light bulb and the positive end attracts the electrons back to the battery.
On Saturday, the St. John's School Business Club won first place in the SFU Beedie School of Business Case Competition at Britannia Secondary School. Team members Alex Kiczales (Grade 11), Jasmine Khanna (Grade 12), Stefanie Low (Grade 11) and Irie Mishra (Grade 11) competed against six other schools by analyzing a Harvard Business case.
