Trafalgar Castle School opened its doors for families to explore opportunities at its recent Open House. Prospective students and their families were on hand well before the 10 a.m. scheduled start, eager to see how they could fit into life at the Castle.
They were greeted by their tour guides: Trafalgar students and parents who showcased the beauty and details of the Castle, and also gave a glance into specific programs offered by the School.
From exclamations of “Wow!”, “It’s so beautiful!” to “We want to start right now!” it was clear that parents and students were impressed by Trafalgar.
The award-winning robots of the FIRST LEGO Robotics program had guests in awe. They were able to see ‘Team 1547’, “Where’s Waldo?”, preparing for their upcoming “Stronghold” challenge as well as students rehearsing for the annual Sears Ontario Drama Festival.
If you were a bit squeamish, it was hard to see the dissected pig in the science lab, but the crystal trees were a good distraction. The trees use sugar dissolved in water, filter paper and ink to produce different coloured crystals.
The Grade 11 physics demonstration was a big hit. Potential Trafalgar students had to guess where a small ball would land off a raised curved ramp. The prizes if they guessed correctly were encouraging, but no one got it exactly right.
Trafalgar students in Grades 8 to12 were also seen creating their designs for this year's Festival of Banners to be unveiled during our May Day celebrations on Saturday, May 28.
Dr. Leanne Foster, Head of School supported by Tim Southwell, Vice Principal Academics and Rhonda Daley, Director of Enrolment Management summed up the day with a presentation about Trafalgar’s overall programing and opportunities. “The girls at Trafalgar Castle School are challenged to achieve at a higher level and are more likely to assume leadership roles at school and beyond,” said Dr. Foster.

We are excited to welcome Jacqueline Pilon, Class of ‘07 back to Trafalgar Castle School as our honoured guest and speaker at this year’s Honour Society Dinner being held on Tuesday, February 9.
Jackie is the Manager, Operations and Special Projects at the Executive Office at Free the Children, working directly with co-founder Marc Kielburger. She has held a number of positions throughout her time at Free the Children and their Social Enterprise partner ME to WE, which have involved bringing the popular youth empowerment WE Day events to life and working with schools to participate in volunteer and leadership trips abroad.
In her current role, Jackie actively supports global partnerships working with companies looking to change the world in partnership with Free the Children. She feels fortunate to be working in an organization that is constantly growing and evolving and one that continues to present exciting new opportunities and challenges.
Her affiliation with Free the Children dates back to her years at Trafalgar where she began volunteering with the organization, taking part in WE Day events then travelling to Mexico and Kenya on service trips. It was these early volunteer opportunities, which led Jackie to further explore her passion for supporting disaster relief, poverty and children’s rights. Upon graduating from Trafalgar, Jackie went on to study International Development and Sociology and holds a double major from Dalhousie University.
Jackie loves to travel, explore new places and embark on new adventures, which align perfectly with her job. In her spare time she loves to read, take in concerts and practice yoga.
It was a whirlwind of activities for our Trafalgar Girls last week as they engaged in several different activities as part of the I Cubed program. They immersed themselves in real-life experiences connected to their learning, all while having fun.
Our staff worked hard to create a program that blended unique opportunities and integrative thinking.
See photos from the week here.
It will be a night of theatre! Join us for a Dramatic Night on either Thursday, February 18 or Friday, February 19 at 7:00 pm.
See our Trafalgar girls perform "The Manhattan Monologues", an original screen play, as well as their submission to the annual Sears Ontario Drama Festival, "After the Flags and Bands".
About The Manhattan Monologues: Martin Ossington is Broadway's biggest playwright. His next production will bring to life the story of New York from the eyes of a teenage girl. As the search is on for the city's most eligible storyteller, Ossington shortlists 10 girls to pitch their stories on the Broadway stage. The competition gets heated when these girls realize their New York City perspectives are vastly different and they must prove why their story should be Broadway's next big hit.
About After the Flags and Bands: Through letters and monologues, we follow the women left at home during the First World War. Their good companionship helps them cope with the devastating events on the Western Front.
