Pursuing a Dream: Brad Andrews by Heather Strickey, Advancement Director

Posted by Heather Strickey on Sep 15, 2016 8:22:00 AM

Brad Andrews arrived at King's-Edgehill School in the fall of 1998 as a Grade 11 student. He immediately established himself as a skilled hockey athlete and a rugged rugby player. He was no slouch in the classroom either. Brad earned consistent Honours in his two years at KES and was a perfect on Upper Inglis during his Grade 12 year. But when I think of Brad's time at KES, I will always hearken back to the gritty performances he put in as one of the top defensive players in high school hockey in Nova Scotia.

Grandparents Day at KES

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 1, 2016 11:09:00 AM

King’s-Edgehill School believes in the importance of staying connected with the people who matter most in a student’s life – their parents, siblings and of course, their grandparents. Children learn first from the adults they are closest to and who support them the most. This is a guiding principle that KES takes to heart when planning its yearly extracurricular events. It is also why every year we host a Grandparent’s Day that provides students the chance to proudly show the most senior members of their family around their school.

King’s-Edgehill Graduates Choose a Career

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Aug 21, 2016 7:30:00 AM

It wasn’t so long ago that the top career choices that came to mind when a student was asked, “What do you want to do when you graduate?” were doctor, journalist, lawyer or teacher. Millennial parents grew up mainly pursuing medicine, law, journalism and science, but modern fields have broadened the academic horizon for many graduates heading into university or college. In addition to traditional fields of study, students can now pursue more niche fields, such as biomedical engineering, social media marketing, and nanotechnology (just to name a few).
