Senior Girls Soccer

 Congratulations to the Senior Girls team who had a very successful first season in 7 v 7 Soccer.  The girls went 3-2 in regular season play and entered Regional play in Swift Current on October 21st.  Probably the highlight of the season was defeating a higher seeded Herbert 1-0 to advance on to Provincials the following weekend. Over the past month and half, the team has improved and learned steadily. A huge shout out to coaches Paul Johnson and Steven Robinson.  Best of luck to captain Kadie Galambos as this is her last year with the team.


Remembrance Day Ceremony

 The students of History 20 would like to welcome you to Sarajevo 1992.  They have been working very hard to recreate Canada’s mission as Peace Keepers in the very hostile environment of the Balkans.  A time little known to many Canadians, but the lasting memory of ethnic cleansing, war torn environments and constant shelling have left permanent scars in Canada’s thousands of military woman and men of that era.  We will be presenting the morning of Wednesday November 8th at the following times:  9:10, 10:00, 10:50 and 11:50 a.m.


 Silent Auction – Grad Fundraiser

The Grad class of 2018 is holding a silent auction this fall as a fundraiser for graduation. The items will be on display in the cabinets by the gym, and the bidding will start on November 27th.

The bidding will conclude on December 8th, and the items will be available for payment after school on that day.  Please pay for and pick up your item by Tuesday, December 12.  If you have won the bid, but your situation has changed and you cannot have it, please come to the office, so we can let the next person on the list know that they can have the item.  Thanks for your generosity to the grads.
