Once a year, Globeducate Debates gives students aged 10 to 18 in Globeducate schools the opportunity to pitch their ideas against an opposing team in another Globeducate school in another country. Between June 13th and 17th 2022, a team of Blyth Academy Burlington students took part in the annual student debate competition.
I was grateful and excited to work with Blyth Academy to maintain the integrity of my coursework at the highest levels, have teachers with deep subject knowledge, seamless in-person and online classes, as well as benefit from more in-person labs, engaging well-resourced student clubs, and a timetable to balance all extracurriculars.
The Blyth Academy annual prom was back in-person this year. With a guest-list of almost 200, staff and students gathered from ten different campuses across Ontario at the beautiful Palais Royale; a famous waterfront venue in Toronto. Dinner was set against a backdrop of the city skyline, the dance floor was filled with smiles and energy, and students were beyond excited to dance and mingle with their friends ‘like old times’.

It is no wonder that Blyth Academy The Glebe science teacher, Mr. Boudreau’s, earliest influence was Bill Nye the Science Guy.

With a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience he is qualified in biology, chemistry, physics, and math and he brings the same amount of enthusiasm to each high school subject.
The Globeducate Model United Nations (MUN) event took place from March 30 to April 1 and was hosted by ISN in Nice, France. It is one of six global events on the Globeducate calendar that brought together students from across nine countries including those from Blyth Academy Etobicoke, Blyth Academy Mississauga and Blyth Academy Burlington.
