  • International Woman's Day 2019

    by Ann Gilmore | Mar 08, 2019

    The theme for International Women’s Day 2019, which takes place on 8 March, is “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”.

    http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/stories/2018/10/announcer-iwd-2019-theme

    The above article honouring Women's Day, mentions that trends indicate that women are under-represented in the field of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and design.  I thought I would take this opportunity to celebrate the ways in which Sir Winston is meeting this challenge!

    Fun Fact #1
    Out of 19 students participating in this year's Science Fair, 12 are female.

    Fun Fact #2
    Out of 12 students participating in this year's Envirothon, 10 are female. 

    Fun Fact #3
    Half of the students who meet during lunch to prepare for Math contests are female.  In last year's Canadian Intermediate Math Competition, our top two students were female.  

    Go girl power!

    I would also like to take this moment to highlight the accomplishments of one of our grade 9 students who came to us from Power Glen Public School - Dheiksha Javasankar.

    Dheiksha is the first Canadian student to be awarded the prestigious Angela Award by the U.S. National Science Teachers Association.  Dheiksha has been researching the use of fruit extracts in a solar power technology known as dye-sensitized solar cells.  This research has led Dheiksha to top spots in various Science Fair competitions and has landed her with an article published in the Journal of Emerging Investigators (JEI) associated with Harvard University - https://www.emerginginvestigators.org/articles/efficacy-of-rotten-and-fresh-fruit-extracts-as-the-photosensitive-dye-for-dye-sensitized-solar-cells.
    Capture

    We are very proud of our students and we are excited to see what future accomplishments will arise from this amazing cohort of young women!
