Dana Silerova wraps up brilliant high school career
Mike Hickey, The Suburban writes: Dana Silerova is ending a chapter of her life on a high note while preparing for new challenges next year. Dana will graduate from MacDonald High School this month and will move next door to attend CEGEP at John Abbott College.
Macdonald High School held its nineteenth annual Multicultural Food Court, Thursday, May 1st. The event was an outstanding success, with several hundred people attending and eating food from over thirty countries. The event has taken root in the culture of Mac High as a gathering of the community of staff, students, family and friends, with good music, food and fun as a catalyst for a great time. The event, which doubly served as a fundraiser for the graduating class, was also used to promote multiculturalism and highlight activities in the Social Studies Program.

Congratulations to the Mac Robotics Team for their participation as a junior team in the CRC Robotics Competition at Vanier College from February 20-22.
The fifty members of the team worked hard over the past several months to complete the required robot, display kiosk, video and website for the event. Their hard work paid off as they were awarded third place overall of thirty one participating teams, and won ten individual awards. These included third place overall, finalist in the game, first place in video, kiosk, robot construction, and web journalism; Second place in robot design; Third place in programming and sportsmanship.
Their theme this year was 'Iron Man', and they worked hard to link it to all elements of the competition.
