Starting today there’s a new activity at St. Lawrence School called the Lab Rats Club. The students are of different ages and levels but they have one thing in common – they love technology and they want to blog!
We are lucky to have a grade six Mentor – known to many as Rocky Online – who will be helping students with the more technical aspects. His particular expertise is in the use of digital art tools. He is the permanent mentor but other grade six students will also take turns helping as needed.
