Two of our most favorite holidays happen in the month of October: Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween. So in the spirit of these two special occasions, we’ve compiled a list of questions that will encourage you to think about all the things you are thankful for and all the things that go bump in the night. (Pssst! We love a good scary story, so please share yours in the comment section below!)
It is back to school season, which means that now is the perfect time to set your intentions for the upcoming school year. To help you overcome the many obstacles students face throughout the year, like difficult subjects and procrastination, September’s daily writing prompts encourage you to develop a strategy to ensure that you achieve all of your academic goals. Together, let’s make this your best school year yet!
Helping those in need and standing up for what you believe in are essential aspects of student life. In Ontario, and other provinces and territories across Canada, volunteering is mandatory for high school students. Not only does volunteering help you gain skills necessary for your professional journey, it also helps you see how valuable and needed your contributions are in your community. For August’s daily writing prompts, we urge you to reflect on how lending a helping hand and supporting those who give their time and effort for a good cause can greatly impact the world for the better.
For July’s daily writing prompts, we encourage you to make an action plan for the summer so you can make the most out of your time away from school. There are many fun events and festivals you can attend in your own city, and there are many unexplored places you can visit and enjoy.
Being a good friend, staying in touch with classmates outside of school, and actively participating in clubs and extracurricular activities are some of the many responsibilities of a well-rounded student. With the summer season just around the corner, we encourage you to reflect on the importance of maintaining a healthy social life.
For the month of May, let’s celebrate Canada’s diversity by exploring the colorful customs and traditions of other cultures. May’s warmer days should also give you plenty of opportunities to visit and support your local museum, where you will find a wealth of information about the people who helped shape Canada’s culture.
