Summer Imaging over Challenge Week!

Instead of bringing in your child’s computer for reimaging in the summer, you can instead bring the computer in during Challenge Week. Your child or you may drop it off on the Friday before Challenge Week or any day during that week. We have about a one day turnaround time. See below for the fine details.

  1. Drop off your laptop on Friday, April 27th after school or anytime during Challenge Week

  2. Grade 11’s can drop it off and pick it up the same day

  3. No cords, no cases, just the laptop. (make sure your name tag is still on it or add a piece of tape with your name)

  4. We will NOT wipe your machine, but back it up just in case. Check that Google Cloud sync is really working.

From the 6th-16th of April, Grade 10 student Ryan Cho participated in the 31st World Individual Debate and Public Speaking Championships held in Bishops Diocesan College in Cape Town, South Africa. During this tournament, Ryan - along with over 120 competitors from 10 different countries had to participate in debate, impromptu speaking, persuasive speaking and interpretive reading. Ryan finished in the top 10 of interpretive reading with his reading of Ellen Degeneres’s “Social Skills” and finished in the top third overall amongst all competitors.

In addition to the competition, Ryan and the other competitors got a glimpse of South African hospitality, including South African “potjie” (or small dishes), South African barbecue, and visits to Table Mountain, Hout Bay and Robben Island.

Congratulations, Ryan! We are so incredibly proud of your accomplishments!
