Academics: For both Junior and Intermediate students, our school is (W5H) very actively involved in a general knowledge competition with other schools. This activity is referred to as the W5H competition. Tryouts for these teams occur in early January for the Junior students (Gr. 4, 5, 6) and in February for Gr. 7&8 students. These competitions are fast-paced general knowledge challenges. Buzzer boards are used as students compete against other schools.
The season for Junior W5H is January/February while the season for Intermediate students is February/March/April.
