GSS Grads Pay it Forward

This June, GBF challenged the 2016 graduates to donate new shoes that will be included in the back-to-school backpack campaign for the 2016-2017 school year.

The Grimsby graduating class rose to the challenge and filled the box to overflowing with new shoes. The Class of 2016 have often paid it forward over the past four years and we know this habit will continue as they move on to post-secondary programs and the workplace.

Best wishes Class of 2016, we are proud of you!

Montreal Science Fair

LucasPennytalkingto ChrisHadfield

Canada Wide Science Fair

This past week two of our GSS Eagles were part of Team Niagara, travelled to Montreal and spent the week, all expenses paid, at the Canada Wide Science Fair. They were fortunate enough to hear Chris Hadfield speak and I'm sure they can tell you about many other excellent adventures during this well-earned and valuable experience. Science Fair requires many hours of work and committment and both of these students worked tirelessly on their projects, allowing them to reach the National level. We want to congratulate Lucas on receiving the Clinical Chemistry Award, the SM Blair Foundation Award, the Manning Achievement Award, and Lucas also received the GOLD MEDAL in the senior division.
