Poetry in Motion 

Poetry in Voice is a national contest for recitation in English and French.  Here at PCI, students in all grades have been busy learning how to choose classic or contemporary poems from the PiV anthology, learn the works deeply, commit them to memory, and hone their recitation skills.
 

In October, many of the students had the opportunity to visit our own Library and attend an excellent workshop run by local poet, Phoebe Wang. There, they practiced creative thinking and recitation skills.

 

Our school contest will be held in the Auditorium on Wednesday, December 19th, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.  You are warmly invited to come and enjoy a special afternoon of performance. We look forward to welcoming you!

In addition to this honour, Frances is also one a very rare few who has achieved a perfect score on her IB Diploma!  Congratulations are in order for this outstanding result in the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate programme.  Frances is continuing her studies at Princeton University.

PCI is thrilled to see a perfect score of 45 two times in the past few years!  Tony Chen also achieved a perfect score upon graudating from our I.B. Diploma Programme. Tony has since completed his Bachelor of Health Sciences at McMaster University, and continues his studies at the same university.  He is pursuing a combined MD/PhD in Biochemistry.

 

Tony echoes the sentiments of many Parkdale IB grads when he states, “It was an experience which challenged my resilience, intellect, and creativity, teaching me the confidence to confront obstacles and rise to the occasion. It gave me an opportunity to learn from an engaged cohort of classmates and a passionate team of teachers, both incredible sources of inspiration and support….Thanks for the great memories Parkdale!”
