The Leadership Team at Huronia Centennial is very excited about their upcoming fundraiser. We are now taking orders for the limited edition Rafiki Friend of East Africa Chain. Each chain is handmade by women in Kenya. The money raised will be donated back to both the people of Kenya, and our clean water project. Each bracelet is being sold for $15.00.

There are two styles available. One is pink, black and white. The other is a mixture of different greens and blues. Each chain can be transformed into a necklace, bracelet, or anklet. With Mothers Day coming up, it is a great opportunity to get some early

The Titanic Art Project is on display at the Elmvale Post Office to coincide with the launch of the commemorative stamps and coins on the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The students from Mrs. Peach’s and Mr. Bignell’s classes have been busy creating drawings, sculptures and journals for the display. The drawings represent reproduction promotional posters. The journals respond to the prompt: “When the ship hit the iceberg, I…”. And the sculptures represent the debris field at the bottom of the ocean. Feel free to drop into the post office to see the fantastic display.

During the month of March all students of Huronia Centennial were encouraged to enter our yearbook cover contest. As of April 2nd we had77 entries and an extremely difficult decision to make. A group of teachers met after school on April 3rd to review all of the submissions and after careful consideration made the decisions. They also do performances on the stage at spirit Assemblies. They do lots of practising on Mondays at recess and Thursday nightsfrom 3:30 until 5:00pm. Bignell, Mrs.

How A Pen Camera Can Record Lectures

The pen camera doesn just exist in spy movies anymore, but everyday people are using them for everyday things. Some individuals simply have a lot of fun with them, while others have practical uses for them. For example, college students like pen cameras for the fact that they can take notes and even record their lectures. It is impossible to be able to take down everything and understand it later, so recording the lecture proves to be quite helpful.

However, some individuals do use the spy pen camera as a way to gather information. Yes,  http://www.motoparts-superstore.com ,the government uses them and, yes, private detectives use them. Even businesses use them. A retail store may decide that placing these ink pens with these small cameras into the pockets of their employees can help them identify robbers and shoplifters. It is amazing how this whole concept is catching on in both personal lives and the business world.

However, it is important to understand that it is utterly impossible to take notes with the pen and record something at the same time. They are designed to record when worn on the body because they are in a stationary position. As for how the data is recorded, some are like mini DVRs. This means that they have an internal memory that allows you to connect with a computer later and play the recording. They even have microphones to make sure you can hear sound when you are watching.

You can also find a pen camera that has a slot for a mini SD card. These are very small SD cards that literally fit on your fingertip, so one will easily fit within your pen. You can also find them with rechargeable batteries, which is great so that you do not constantly have to purchase batteries.

So whether it is a class lecture, business use, or another personal use, it is important to know that you can use a pen camera for virtually anything. They have definitely come very far since the days when they were just something you see in the movies. They are functional pens that have technology built all through them.
