Tiger Talk


Tiger Talk  June 2

On Wednesday, May 17th the Chemistry 40S class traveled to Brandon University to participate in their “Experience Chemistry Week”.  They spent the day in the Chemistry labs and conducted two university level experiments which demonstrated different areas of Chemistry. The students received an explanation of the theory and mechanism behind the experiments and then in pairs completed the experiments.  The day gave students the opportunity to meet professors and lab instructors and see the types of research that is being done.

Congratulations to Mackenzie Poirier, Charity Porier and Michaela Halls who participated in the zone track and field day in Neepawa. Michaela placed 2nd in the 200m & 400m; Charity place 2nd in the 800m.
