November activities

LINKages has started up for another year with 25 MidSun grade 8 and 9 students heading over to McKenzie Towne Care Centre to visit with 12 of the residents.  Our students are making great connections with these seniors and are learning how much we have in common.  More information about this great program is available at:

Our students made us very proud when they participated in our school's Remembrance Day Assembly.  Under the direction of Scott Campbell, our band played moving selections of "Pax" by Catherine McMichael, "Rain" by Brian Balmages and "Tipperary March" Arr. by John Edmondson.  Heart R., Kimberly H. and Claire H. did a fantastic job of playing the last post.  Ms. Smith and her drama students presented an original tableau story entitled "What I'm Fighting For", that reminded us that the life we enjoy today was bought through the efforts of brave men and women who fought on our behalf. 

Tianna R., Kailyn E.,Kydia L., and Camryn. A. read poems and our student emcee's, Jordan H., Jessica A, and Kathryn R. did a wonderful job of telling the story of Remembrance.  Mr. Hornburg, the father of fallen soldier, Nathan Hornburg, shared with us how important it is to thank vetrans when we see them.  He spoke of the recent events in Ottawa and how it has impacted all of us as Canadians.  Lt. Arlen Peterson and our own Captain N. Mellish layed the wreath with Mr. Hornburg at our ceremony.  Over 700 food items were brought in and donated to the Vetran's Food Bank and over $750 was raised for the Poppy Fund.  It was very touching to have many of our parents and family members join with us in our Act of Remembrance.  We are truly lucky to have such strong support and solidarity as we teach our students the importance of Remembrance Day to our Canadian culture.

Our volleyball teams had a great season! 
Congratulations to our Junior Boys and Junior Girls Volleyball teams who both won gold in their divisions for volleyball.  The exciting play-off games were played on November 12 and 13, 2014.  Our Senior Girls had a wonderful season and placed forth overall and Senior Boys finished seventh.  Both teams showed amazing growth over the season and by their final season game the Senior Boys were able to beat the team who finished in first place!  

A big thank you goes out to coaches, Mr. Stretch, Ms. Hennebury, Ms. Miles, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Rae, and Ms. Arnold who supported the athletes throughout the season.  Thanks also go out to our grade seven coaches, Ms. Bailey and Mr. Moulton who have continued to run a great development program for our grade seven students. They will be ready to try out for the junior teams next year.
