The Inevitable Fall

Jan 01, '18

The following is the 2017 Grade 9 winner of the Serup Poetry Competition. A man walked through the citadel, And through the city strode. His staff and robes glistened like hell, To take what he was owed. Guards defended without avail, He didn’t give lament. The demon knew he could prevail, With sword in hand he went. He rushed the...

Dec 30, '17

Pearly, Ivory, Milky, are successful. — but what happens when a brown-skinned woman holds great intelligence, her voice not heard… and if she has a cure for cancer, it will never be cured. how can we carry confidence when our very thoughts are stomped upon, before they leave our minds, before they dance off our tongues, why should...

Spanish 12

Dec 19, '17

Spanish 12 this far into the year has been an incredible experience. The class atmosphere (and of course the teacher) are amazing and I begin every class with a smile. We have even had the pleasure of hosting presenters from Cuba and Costa Rica. Throughout the class we were shown the culture of each country including music, food, dialects and...

Lion King Jr.

Dec 04, '17

We assume you’ve all seen the Grade 8 musical Lion King, Jr. but there’s a lot more to the show than meets the eye.

The next practice we started to sing and...

Plants absorb these nutrients,...
