  Do you remember where you grew up? Was it a quiet little town with one church that everybody would visit? Or maybe you are from a bustling metropolis with so many houses of worship that you wouldn't know where to begin. A visit last year from author Steve Kluger set our students on the path of documenting their own childhoods. That project, titled "Where I Grew Up," is now...

I took into consideration the many stylistic devices while writing my emulation "Multicultural Milkshake" for a recent assignment in IB Language & Literature (English). My intention was to give brief advice to students, TGS ones...

Author's note: A little experimentation with stream of consciousness, and putting everything I have learned throughout the last three months living in Hiroshima into words. I came to this city with naïve opinions and assumptions, and they have been turned on upside down and rightside up again. Did my moral values change? Maybe. Am I still confused? You bet I am. But hey, it's all a learning curve. Red  ...

Where and how do you learn? How do you develop a passion for curiosity? How do you keep your mind open to new people, ideas, and possibilities? These are all questions being faced by educators and students as our world gains a more global context.  For a rare few who are lucky enough to have talented and equally curious teachers, this might happen in the confines of the classroom. But...

What have you been up to in that time?  Since graduating from TGS, I have been attending the University of Toronto studying mineral (mining) engineering.
