41ST ANNUAL HOLOCAUST SYPOSIUM

On Tuesday, May 3rd Ms. Li-Hindson's History 12 class had the privilege to participated in the 41st Annual Holocaust Symposium at UBC with 24 other high schools in BC. This very important event was sponsored by the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre.  At the Symposium, students sat in a lecture on the Holocaust by Professor Friedrich, a specialist on German history who has taught at UBC since 1973.  They heard from two survivors of the Holocaust, Mariette Doduck a Jewish child and war orphan who hid from the Nazis through the war, and Professor Peter Suedfeld, a Hungarian Jewish child who hid in a Catholic orphanage during the war.  The day concluded with a panel discussion, students' questions, and a candle lighting tribute in memory of all victims of the Holocaust.



 PURDY'S CHOCOLATE FACTORY!!!!!!

On Wednesday April 27, our senior Foods students had the opportunity to attend a chocolate making class and information session at Purdy's Chocolate Factory in Vancouver. At Purdy's students were met by two of the company's taste-testers and chocolate masters. Students learned about how chocolate is sourced, fermented, roasted and made into the delectable treats that we have all grown to enjoy. At the end of the presentation, students had the opportunity to create their own chocolate bark using a variety of specialty ingredients. Students learned about the intricate process involved in chocolate making as well as  how to become expert taste-testers. All in all, Mrs. Bochen and Mrs. Forbes felt the trip with their students was a success.
