Check out this photo of OLC/Trafalgar's Chemistry Lab, circa 1920. 

Thanks to the support and generosity of the Parents' Guild (PG), the Middle School students now have their own dedicated space to study their Singapore Science curriculum with all new equipment purchased through last year's Annual Fund. The PG also helped fund renovations to the Junior and Senior Science labs.

Thank you to all the dedicated members of our PG!

In early October, students in grades 5-8 gathered in the Resource Centre to learn about a new component of their advisor program known as LIKA -Leading in the Knowledge Age.  With a focus on the encouragement of self-directed learning for students, LIKA offers a set of tools and abilities to help students deepen their skills and abilities for learning over time.

The cornerstone of this program is to build essential competencies in the areas of: work ethic, communication, independent and peer learning, teamwork and networking.   Trafalgar students will focus on one competency per month so that they are able to gain a full understanding of exactly what each one is, and how it is a foundation to learning at The Castle.  For example, October’s LIKA competency is work ethic. 

These competencies have also been identified as the essential skills for future leaders and tomorrow’s agents of change – exactly what every Trafalgar girl aims to be!  

For more information on this program, please contact Mrs. Christina Schindler, Director of Research.

The Castle Bazaar (P)

The Charity Bazaar dates to the early 1900s and has remained an integral part of Trafalgar Castle School’s treasured traditions.  The event is organized by our Community Service Co-ordinators in partnership with the active citizenship team, the student population, alumnae, parents and staff.  Over and above their academic commitments, students make items such as candles, soaps, and art work to display and sell.  International students provide a smorgasbord of culinary delights that appeal to all palates.  Some of the highlights of this event include our Baked Goods table and Tea Room.

This year, the Bazaar will also be featuring a Henna Tattoo artist and a Toonie toss, in which the fund will go directly to Me-to-We to support sustainable development in an Ecuadorian community. There is a child care room for young children and a raffle!

It is a fun way to support various causes near and dear to the hearts of the Trafalgar Community.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, November 1st!
