The month of March is a very happy
month for students –March break. We students get to stay home from
school,catch up on our sleep, or go on vacation with family. Some go down
south to be in the sun, while some students will be joining teachers on a
trip to Europe.
Two teachers will be watching over
20 or so high school students as they travel to England, France and Rome.
Two years ago students traveled to England, France and Monaco. This year
the lovely Mrs. Morton and Mrs. Richardson will chaperone these teens on
their guided trip across the water.
This opportunity is great for
students as they get to experience the world. They will see museums,
timeless buildings like Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, and the Colliseum,
giving students not only an enjoyable experience, but a memorable and
educational trip. The trip is organized by Mowat staff and is a less
expensivepackaged trip, which saves money in parents’ wallets.
March will also be a celebrated
month for theater enthusiasts at Mowat. Students were involved in a
competition called the Sears Festival which has students competing against
each other by performing plays. Students across Toronto will be acting,
directing, stage managing, and participating in order to place as best
Mowatperformed a play called
“Heights”. It is a three character play, with Isabell, Alec, and Jonathan.
It takes place on the top of Isabel and Alec’s rooftop. Isabel and Alec
have never met before but they have something, or someone, in common.
Jonathan, who has been engaged to Isabel for nine months, is having an
affair with Alec. These three characters have to deal with the situation
while being locked on the top of a New York roof top.
Vanessa Beesley, who starred in
last school year's performance of “Footloose”,played Isabel, while Connor
McNeil played Jonathan. Connor was also in the last three school
plays.They were joined by Andrew Rupnarine,a newcomer from Wexford, who
has shown his acting talent in December’s play “The Laramie Project”. The
play was directed, under the supervision of two drama teachers Mrs. Morton
and Mrs.Meichenbaum, byme, Rachel DeLouchry.
Mowat originally wanted to put on
a shortened version of “Laramie” but it was too big of a project to take
on three weeks before show night. Although this play was started two weeks
before show night, we were able to pull it off on February 26th,
and are proud of our performance. This play does have inappropriate
language and subject matter that is not appropriate for a younger
audience, so it shows much integrity for teens to have performed it.
