Community Learning with Weeks Without Walls

Grade Nine Students continue to learn in the community during second Weeks Without Walls

We are excited to have completed our second Weeks without Walls at NMC.  This week was made possible by an extraordinary number of community partners and professionals who volunteered their time for the benefit of our students.

Weeks without Walls, our intensive theme weeks, provide chances for students to be exposed to topics, careers, and ideas that are new to them.  These weeks often allow students an opportunity to explore different areas of interest through field trips and experiential learning.  Allowing students to learn through outside experts will help them envision potential careers and learn about passions over the course of the year.

In this Week, our Grade 9 students chose from the following themes (Click on each of the following titles for more details and photos):

Students explored these topics by meeting with experts, going on tours, and creating new products.  Using these experiences, students will reflect on the skills they have developed, the careers that connect to those skills, and their own interests and aptitudes.
