As part of a Deep Learning assignment, students in the class were provided with an inaccessible object. In this case, the height of the flag above the scoreboard on the SMCS sports field. The task was to create a clinometer using a straw, pencil, string, tape, paperclip, and a protractor and use it, along with what they learned in trigonometry, to calculate the height of the inaccessible object.
In the first of two Service-focused advertisements, Dr. Robert Fantilli '94, a math teacher, U14 soccer coach, moderator of the Social Justice Club, and coordinator of Christian and Community Service initiatives at SMCS, is teaching a Grade 10 math class.
The second Service advertisement, captures Chris Bergin, a Science and Biology teacher, as well as a coach of the Cross Country team, teaching a visibly engaged class of Grade 8 students (photos below).
At St. Michael's College School, 40 hours of Community Service hours as required by the Ministry of Education is coupled with an additional 20 hours of Christian Service hours, required by St. Michael's College School over the course of a student's high school journey.
Service can take on many different forms at SMCS, from our students helping the marginalized in the community, collecting food donations for national charitable organizations, making mats out of milk bags for developing countries to students supporting each other via peer tutoring, or past graduates offering their time to provide career advice or to assist with a school event. Service is embedded in the lifeblood of school life.
