Welcome back to all students and staff! It’s been a great start to the school year and we are looking forward to days filled with wonder and learning. The first day of school brought a focus of wonder, curiosity, and creativity into the classroom by showcasing and engaging with three children’s books. This launched our learning platform for the year as we prepare to focus on the 6C’s and provide rich learning experiences for our students. Please continue to check… Read More

Nolan was awarded a $1000 tuition remission from the University of Manitoba along with $700 award from the Manitoba Association of Mathematics Teachers.
The grade 9 Science class has been learning about astronomy, space exploration, and how the study of the skies impacts our lives on planet earth. What started with a lot of questions about what we know about the universe and how we found that out has led to many opportunities for exploration. Each student is choosing specific concepts to explore, such as the International Space Station, dark matter, and potentially habitable planets, and they will be researching to find answers… Read More
In North America approximately 68 pounds of clothing is thrown out per household per year. Not only is this causing the landfills to keep growing but there are many people and their families who could benefit from this clothing. This information lead a group of grade 9 students from Landmark Collegiate to take action for a project in which they were to explore a way to make their community a better place.
Through a student-initiated inquiry, Sydnie Janz, Haylee Janz, and Celina Lackmann realized that Landmark currently had no place to recycle or donate used clothing, so they contacted several organizations to see what they could to do help. After a lot of research, collaboration, and careful planning, the Canadian Diabetes Association accepted their proposal and agreed to deliver a Clothesline donation box to the school. The clothing that is donated will be sold to Value Village and the profits from that clothing will go directly to the Canadian Diabetes Association. This money funds research to provide better medical treatments and to provide community support for those affected by diabetes.
The widely recognized bright red bin was delivered on Thursday, February 16th and conveniently placed at the main entrance of Landmark Collegiate. Landmark residents can now drop off gently used clothing anytime they like. By donating instead of adding to the landfill, people can feel good about being sustainable, providing quality clothing at an affordable price, and by helping to support those affected by diabetes.
Landmark Collegiate Biology students had the opportunity to partner with RBC Youth BIOLab Jeunesse at the St. Boniface Hospital and work on experiments in a safe and authentic biomedical teaching laboratory. Our research question focused on the effects of caffeine because of its various forms in our daily lives. We worked with the Director, Steve Jones, and Education Liaison, Meghan Kynoch, to develop an experiment with stem cells to learn how caffeine affects cell growth. We extracted stem cells… Read More
My favourite form of art is mixed media. I like all the different textures and dimension it gives to the art. I usually begin a piece by looking up pictures for ideas and inspiration. In my opinion a piece is never really done, but you have to stop at some point or it will be too much.
I chose to display The Red Dress Project using mixed media so it would draw people’s attention to it. It invites people to want to touch, feel, and read. The stories of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women need to be told so they are not forgotten and pushed aside and that they are cared about. My hope is that when people see my project they will become aware of this issue and to be inspired to care about the women.
