Wasaga Beach

Today was a bittersweet day. As we were boarding the busses in the morning to head to Wasaga, students came running to say goodbye. Many students who have graduated left to go back home today, and so it was a hectic and emotional morning.

Wasaga Beach is located a couple hours north of Toronto, on Georgian Bay. The popularity of the destination was definitely made evident today, as the beach was filled with lounging bodies, volleyball players and people of all ages running in and out of the water. It was a very hot day and most students spent it relaxing.

Meanwhile others stayed in Toronto and explored the distillery district, a historic and now very chic location during all seasons.

Medievel Times and Canoeing

As many groups of students celebrated their last evening in town with dinner and a show, others who have only recently arrived canoed on the lake. It was a very hot and sunny day, so by the time we arrived on the island a much deserved rest was in order! After relaxing in the shade and getting re-hydrated, the students took the ferry back all together, taking in the famous Toronto skyline.

Leadership Activity

As part of the in-class component, students must learn about the various aspects of leadership and preform tasks and activities to put what they learned into practice. Today, the activity entailed leaving the class for a short walk to the nearby square. An open space where many stalls were set up to sell and give away locally grow flowers. As part of today’s lesson, students had to say something nice to a person that didn’t seem happy. This demonstrated the importance of helping others but also the positive effect these simples acts of kindness can have on their own self-esteem. Taking note of how much kind words effect others, the students enjoyed the day and walked away with beautiful flours in hand!
