Two of our youngest representatives of the NGS Environmental Committee delivered over 500 milk bags to the Woodgreen Community Seniors Active Living Centre. The donation will be weaved into mats for young children to sleep on in developing countries. It was a very interesting experience seeing the weaving process! Thank you to our generous Newton’s Grove Community. Your efforts will help so many!
Last Thursday evening, our Newton's Grove Family celebrated the Grade 8 and Grade 12 graduates with a beautiful evening of awards, dinner and dancing. Thirty-six grade eight students will be heading to high school in the fall. There were 32 grade twelve graduates and 26 of those students were Ontario Scholars. The Gr. 12 grads accepted offers to universities throughout Ontario (Western, U of T, Queens and McMaster etc.) as well as several other schools outside of Ontario (McGill, University of Washington, University of Melbourne, and University of New South Wales). Twenty-three of the senior graduates received entrance scholarships to the University of their choice. Our graduates are a talented and diverse group and they will continue their studies in the following programs: Engineering, Mechanical Science, Business/Commerce and Humanities. Congratulations, everyone. "Work hard and dream big!"
