On Wednesday and Thursday, Ms. Kristen Cassidy, Communications and Alumni Relations Officer, and Mr. Jonathan Kinman, Director of Athletics, visited alumni in Montreal and Toronto. Alumni were excited to share their experiences since leaving St. John’s and it was wonderful to hear about their lives at university and beginning their careers.
Our DP Business Management students have piloted use of a new assessment and feedback tool pioneered at UBC. Described as a, “cross-disciplinary peer answer comparison tool”, by UBC, comPAIR allows students to formulate answers to questions and then compare and assess pairs of their peers’ answers based on criteria provided by the instructor. St. John’s is the only secondary school using comPAIR.
Last Tuesday, a group of students participated in the Pumpkin Run at Ambleside Park. Emily in Grade 3 placed 1st and Maxime in Grade 3 placed 3rd. Everyone represented SJS very well, demonstrating great sportsmanship, positive attitudes and giving it their all.
