Self-Inquiry Program Open House

A couple of weeks ago, the boys who are a part of the Self-Inquiry Program had their projects on display for their parents to see. The Self-Inquiry Program gives boys the opportunity to study a personal area of interest; providing the time, space and resources for the boys to dig deeper into concepts and skills that may not be covered in the regular curriculum. It is a student-initiated program, available to all boys at St. George’s with the most important pre-requisite being that each boy is excited about the topic that he has chosen.

 

As it is just the beginning of the year, none of the projects on display were finished.  This was an opportunity for the boys to give a snapshot of what they have done so far and present a description of where they are hoping to go with their project this year.

 

Some of the project ideas for this year include:

-Diorama of the Battle of Midway

-Homemade Lava Lamp

-Walkie Talkie Watch

-Board Game about “The Children’s Blizzard”

-Real Life Mario Kart Track

-Wooden Vending Machine

-Homemade Chess Set

 

It will be exciting to see what the boys have created at the end of the school year!

Wednesday’s Thought of the Day

“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that- that’s what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s really special and if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”

~ Amy Poehler
