Math, Science and Technology Olympics

Students in Grades 7 and 8 work in teams during a series of challenges geared to test their skills and knowledge in math, science and technology. The event is held annually at Science North.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – Orange Shirt Day

On September 30th, students in Rainbow Schools commemorate the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, which coincides with Orange Shirt Day, a day to recognize the effects and intergenerational impacts of the residential school system on First Nation, Métis, and Inuit children in Canada. Orange Shirt Day began in Williams Lake, British Columbia by the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration project. Phyllis Webstad, a young girl from the Dog Creek reserve, attended the Mission in 1973, where her clothes were removed, including her brand new orange shirt. Phyllis’ story inspired the Mission to declare September 30th Orange Shirt Day, as this was the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to attend residential schools.

Remembrance Day

Rainbow students and staff take part in numerous activities to honour those who have fought and scarified their lives during war and peacekeeping missions.

Science Fair

Students in Grades 7 to 12 capitalize on their instinctive curiosity to inquire and discover during the annual Science Fair. Students research specific areas of science that relate to curriculum expectations in all areas including engineering, earth sciences, the environment and more. They test their projects and present their findings to a panel of judges as they compete for a spot at the Sudbury Regional Science Fair.

Wear Pink Day – September

Staff and students wear pink for “Stand Up Against Bullying Day” in an effort to demonstrate a collective commitment to end bullying in Rainbow schools and communities.
