Golf and the Game of Life
By Michael Fellin, Headmaster of Crescent School
Recently, I was on the golf course assisting with the Upper School golf team tryouts. It was my first time back on a GTA course since the fall. As each golfer approached the first tee, I announced, “Fore, please, next on the tee from Crescent School…” and they were off. I love the feeling of each new golf season.
On the heels of the Upper School arts festival, SOLA, Ms. Roberts shares how she sees the value of the arts in education.
Art class plays a vital role in providing a well-rounded education, particularly for boys, by fostering essential 21st-century skills. While more academic subjects like math and science often focus on logical reasoning and analytical skills, visual art provides a unique platform for students to explore their imagination, express themselves and develop critical thinking abilities. The freedom the studio creates encourages them to think outside the box and explore unconventional solutions to problems — which, for many, can be quite challenging. By engaging in artistic endeavours, boys can tap into their creativity and develop a deep understanding of themselves and the world around them.
E-portfolios can capture students’ experiences in the classroom, help develop their learning skills and allow them to take ownership of their learning experience. These are the Grade 9 Portfolio Project findings from a series of CCBE workshops run by Trish Cislak, Head of Libraries and Research at Crescent, and Upper School learning support specialist Rob Messenger.
