This was a big week for exploration at HKA. In Grade 4, the students used their “How the World Works” unit to investigate the idea of energy and its sources. The atmosphere generated by these Young Scientists was as electric as some of their projects! The students' work also reminds us that you don’t have to be a grown up scientist in order to apply the scientific method to a line of inquiry. That sort of creativity and problem-solving is for everyone.
In the Secondary School, our Grade 12 students are on the cusp of a different type of exploration as they make plans for their post-secondary educational experiences. I’m happy to report that our G12's continue to gain admission to their top choice universities and, as another sign of our growing Secondary School, HKA held a university fair yesterday on campus for a number of schools in the United Kingdom that are eager to get to know our students. With our fourth graduation soon upon us, it’s exciting to see how quickly HKA has emerged as a lead school in this age group.
