HSC Mathletes Compete in the 2018 Canadian Mathematics Contest

This month, Senior and Middle School students took part in the Canadian Team Mathematics Contest and Canadian National Mathematics League Contest.

In the League Contest, HSC was one of only 14 schools in Canada to have all three of its teams (Grades 6, 7 and 8) place in the top 35. In addition, Grade 7 student, Andrew Kang, was one of only three students in Canada – and the only student in Ontario – to achieve a perfect score.

A select team of six students competed at the University of Waterloo in the prestigious Team Contest. The HSC team at University of Waterloo placed 17th overall, out of 36 schools from across Canada. They represented HSC with pride.

These results are impressive and demonstrate the strength of HSC math students. Way to go, Mathletes!


HSC’s Inaugural Culinary Arts Programme

On Thursday, April 26th, HSC’s inaugural Culinary Arts Programme culminated in an internationally-inspired buffet luncheon and mocktail bar. The students, working under the name “Panwerx”- our little internal catering company, demonstrated their knowledge and skills with real panache! Some say at the 5 star level!

Take a deep bow Panwerx.


Congratulations, CISMF Performers!

On April 8th, over 60 students from across the College performed at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto as part of the Conference of Independent Schools’ Music Festival. For the second year in a row, Grade 11 student, Sophia Richardson, was a featured soloist with the Senior Choir. An annual highlight of this event is the Finale performance, which combines more than 500 voices of the Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Choirs into one mass choir accompanied by the String Orchestra. This year’s final piece was conducted by award-winning conductor and composer, Dr. Mark Sirett. It certainly lived up to the impressive legacy of past finale performances. Congratulations to all the students who performed this year!


Senior School Welcomes Guest Speaker, Michael Lee-Chin

Senior School students learned about the ingredients for investment success when Mr. Michael Lee-Chin’s shared his most important lessons. Mr. Lee-Chin’s presentation was organized by the Senior School Finance and Investment Club students. Thank you to those students and Mr. Lee-Chin for an amazing address on our campus!

HSC Prom Dress Drive a Big Success

HSC donated over 100 prom dresses, plus shoes and accessories, to Delta High School as part of this year’s Glam Up! Prom Dress Drive. “HSC is giving back to the community in a special way so that students can experience their final high school journey – walking into their Senior Prom – with pride”, said the dress drive organizer and Senior School student, Olivia Bowman-Whitley.
