CAPTURING

REFLECTIONS apturing an interesting reflection requires a combination of luck and skill. As a first step, reflection photos require some sort of reflecting surface! As the sample photos illustrate, various surfaces can reflect, including water (1&2), glass (3), sunglasses (4), brass instruments (5) and grand piano tops (6). The composition of reflection photos often poses the interesting challenge of how to apply the “rule of thirds”: Should one show more subject? more reflection? or equal amounts of each? There is no correct answer - artistic choices abound!

Linda Loro, owner of the salon and spa at LaSalle Park Retirement Community, found a way to channel unspeakable pain into helping young people. Last October, she lost her son Marcus, to suicide. On May 6th, Linda’s salon hosted a fundraiser to benefit St. Joseph’s Youth Wellness Centre, which offers clinical care to troubled adolescents and young adults. All money raised from haircuts, raffles, the barbecue and bake sale were donated in memory of Marcus. Many loving and supportive friends and coworkers volunteered for a successful outcome.

Dear The Wine Ladies,

ASK

As a guest at a comparative Australian wine tasting recently, the observation came up that one of the Cabernet Sauvignon wines from down under had a distinctive aroma resembling eucalyptus. The same notes were then attributed to a Napa Valley Cabernet. I always thought it was the proximity of the trees to the vineyards that allowed this to be true, but eucalyptus in California? - Jeanne

THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Jeanne,

We are often asked how certain smells come to be associated with specific grapes or wines. A common one for Cabernet Sauvignon is green pepper, this is our first for eucalyptus. Great question! Actually, eucalyptus trees do grow in the Golden State and have for quite some time. It was during the gold rush that the trees were introduced into California either by Australians, or by others who had been to Australia. The question of whether the proximity of the eucalyptus trees to the vineyards might explain the eucalyptus-like, or medicine-like hints in the nose of a wine is one often debated. There are a couple of schools of thought on this. We had the opportunity to interview Chris Hatcher, Chief winemaker of the iconic Wolf Blass wines on our video podcast and posed a similar question. Here’s what Mr. Hatcher had to say,

“Cabernet from Langhorne Creek in South Australia is famous for having a distinct mint/ eucalyptus character. Winemakers have theorized that the character comes from oil expressed from nearby eucalyptus trees on hot days.” Mr. Hatcher went on to explain that the more modern view believes it is more about the specific clones of Cabernet grown in the region, as wines made in other regions from the same 14

COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA

clonal vines have a similar character. The same minty character can also be smelt in some wines from California and Bordeaux. It appears, according to the latest research on the topic there is no evidence to conclusively prove a direct link between proximity of eucalyptus trees and the presence of that flavor in the wine.

SCHOOL LIFE CRAIG KIELBURGER SECONDARY SCHOOL CO N G R AT U L AT I O N S C KS S We are one of the 2017/2018 Community Champion winners! Halton Families for Families strongly recognizes the importance of collaborative working relationships between the school community and families. As we believe, “We’re in this together!” The Community Champion award goes to a school, individual or group that has shown: - An outstanding commitment to engage, support and work with families to ensure the success of children/youth - Is of tremendous benefit in the life of the children/youth and the families by inspiring, motivating, encouraging and positively impacting the mental health for the children/youth - Utilized innovative tools, strategies or programs as a result of the collaborative work with the students and families. Craig Kielburger Secondary School - Milton (Group Nomination Rajani Rao Peters, Marsha Simms-Luke, David Spragge, Angelika Henning, Ms. AJ Abdul, Melissa Wagner, Daniel Innes, Mr. Woodley, Ms. Holms, Cheryl Clarke, Sheena McGuigan, Kevin Houldcroft, Simon Vanellis) Awesome!! Youth in Action is excited to announce that our WE Walk for Water event was the most successful fundraising event that YIA has ever had at CKSS. Together, with our incredible CKSS community (that’s YOU) WE raised $7173.50 to bring clean water and sanitation to our WE Village of Namelok, Tanzania. It takes a village to make an event like this happen, and we would like to take a few minutes to show some gratitude for the support that this awesome CKSS community showed for our WE Walk for Water event, our students and for our WE Village in Tanzania. The Leadership course prepares students to offer assistance and leadership to others in their schools and communities. The CK students were tasked with a WOW project. “Cupcakes for Cancer” was run by Mishaal Farooq, Avneet Johal, Taruny Ramamoorthy, Tanisha Batra and Maha Khilji. The class also

ran a candy scavenger hunt and a dodgeball tournament. Funds collected were donated to their chosen charities and a delicious time was had by all. On May 15, CK participated in the annual HDSB Secondary Public Speaking Competition, held at White Oaks S.S. Each school in Halton was invited to send students that are eager to demonstrate their talents for public speaking. Speeches were divided into Junior and Senior categories and students were given creative freedom on topics and delivery strategies. Speeches were judged on: content organization, effectiveness, originality, logic, and evidence; delivery - voice, body language, eye contact, enthusiasm, confidence, and overall impression. You guessed it - CKSS’ own Grade 12 student, Yaser Tasqie won!! CK couldn’t be happier for this awesome young man! On May 10, 15 Business CKSS students traveled to the University of Guelph to participate in the first ever University of Guelph Business Pantheon. Students were put into teams of 4 and competed in five different events. The events included analyzing cases, team building activities, pitching a new product and other challenges that tested their business knowledge. The CKSS Junior team consisting of four Grade 10 Students, Misty Guinn, Shaurya Manocha, Omer Hashmi and Joseph Sadgove came home with two second places finishes and one third place finish. Our varsity cricket team was runner up at the Halton Schools Cricket Championship!! Congratulations players and coaches! A big thank you to Mr. Miranda for taking the team so far.

GARY ALLAN

Edmonton. Mr. Brunato has been their dedicated guide throughout their journey and could not be more proud of this FIRST EVER feat.

As the school year winds down, students are working feverishly to complete their courses and prepare for the next steps, whether that is returning next year, transitioning to a new school, or graduating and moving on to the next phase of their lives (work, apprenticeship, college or university).

The Mighty Mustang Award is presented to students from any grade who have prevailed through challenges and demonstrated resilience in order to thrive. Sixteen hard-working students achieved this award and were ecstatic about it. This year’s nominees were named earlier in the semester by staff and recipients were thrilled and surprised with an MD sculpture and personal letter. Congratulations to these extraordinary individuals!

HIGH SCHOOL

Staff are working with students to get them to their chosen destination and are now preparing for our graduation ceremony to be held this year on Wednesday June 27th. This year approximately 50 students from our Milton site and 55 students from our Halton Hills location will potentially graduate. Staff, students and family are always excited to take part in this event each year. This month our alternative students continued with their weekly art sessions by ArtHouse. Students have found this experience very interesting and therapeutic. Our students also visited Sheridan college (Brampton Campus) to explore future educational opportunities and joined our Halton Hills group for an engaging, interactive day hosted by Altitude, a program run by McMaster University staff to explore more experiential learning opportunities and team building activities. The group of students at the Outdoor Education programs: Trailhead and Bronte Creek project are completing their coursework and preparing for their end of year camping trip in Algonquin park in early June. Pre-registration for our adult Online Plus program is now open for next year. Anyone interested should visit our website to book an intake appointment. Anyone interested in more information about our programs, or how to register should visit our school’s website garyallan.ca.

MILTON DISTRICT HIGH SCHOOL

While the school year is coming to a close, it’s prime time for members of the community to be rewarded for their efforts and accomplishments for making MD an even better place to learn and grow. By focusing on wellness and its basis for success of any kind, students and staff have been recognized with a long list of awards in a number of genres. Senior students Ofer Weis and Matthew Wilson won the coveted GOLD in the Video Production category at the Ontario Skills competition, qualifying them for the upcoming Canada Skills competition in

Every year, a Student of Excellence is selected from the graduating class for their outstanding efforts as a student throughout the year and other involvement in the school. MDHS is proud to announce that the Student of Excellence of 2018 is Kira White. Congratulations Kira on your achievement! Students are not the only members of the Mustang community that are recognized. The 44th Annual OSSTF AGM was held recently and Katherine Compton-Morgan and Edel Nuqui, two outstanding MD staff members, received the Inclusive Educator Award for their incredible work at bridging gaps and facilitating connections in multiple aspects of their practice. In addition, Rod Waite, teacher and guidance counselor, also received an INSPIRE award from the HDSB for his work that has motivated others to greater things. From AP to French Immersion to SHSM programs, MD offers an incredible range of experiential opportunities for its students. Some of the Social Justice SHSM team enjoyed leadership training and a zip-lining circuit at the Long Point Eco Adventure facility. This team building experience was the perfect way to plan even greater wellness initiatives and broader outcomes for the next school year. Speaking of outside, many of our students work extremely hard in their personal lives to master a skill - often to a standard of international competence. David Sandro is a perfect example. He recently won four medals in the junior artistic gymnastics individual apparatus finals at the Pacific Rim Championships in Colombia. One of his medals was gold on high bar. There’s no doubt that everyone in the school community could be recognized and rewarded for some aspect of their work and efforts. At Milton District High School, Mustangs strive for their best work, and now that the school year is ending, they deserve this recognition.

HAVE YOU EVER

ADJUSTED YOUR ADJUSTABLE

DRIVER

hen you bought that new driver, it probably came with a head cover, a manual and wrench. I certainly hope you have put the head cover on to protect your investment, but have you ever read through the guide to see what adjustments can be made on the club, in order to help create the results you want? You can now separate the head from the shaft of your adjustable club, re-orientate the way they go back together and poof, the face went from open to closed. It only took a matter of seconds to do, but the club now could help you counteract that nasty slice, instead of magnifying it. Club manufacturers have incorporated sleeves and gears to the neck, to change the loft dials, to change face angle screws, to change the weight or centre of gravity or bumps on the sole, to alter the way the club sits on the ground. It’s confusing! It’s no wonder so few have never even tried to read the instruction manual. But fear no more, we’re here to help you figure out the best way to optimize your equipment to fit you.

Now, instead of listening to what the customer is saying about what they don’t like about their shot shape, the analysis technology by Trackman Golf at the Golfer’s Academy will read the dynamics of what the club and ball are doing on each swing and thus show what adjustments should be made. The Trackman Performance Studio is simply the best in the golf industry and it’s now available to you. The technology is available, take advantage of it (we’ll work on the technique later).
