Dear KES Family:
What we do in our unscripted and unscheduled moments reveal a lot about our character. For students who are out of the classroom and off the ice or pitch or court, what they do when away from referees and teachers and the rules which govern structured environments is very telling. Last weekend our rugby teams travelled to New Brunswick for a tournament, both the boys’ and girls’ teams emerged victorious winning the championship banner in their divisions. However, what made me genuinely proud of them was receiving the following email. I trust you will agree.
I would like to pass on a very positive message in regards to your (young) men's rugby team.
I had the pleasure of dining at East Side Mario's in Saint John NB for my nephews 5th birthday on Friday April 21st. We were almost finished our meal when entered your team of teenage boys and they were seated next to us. The boys were boys but every single one of them were respectful and acted very appropriately as we had a table of small children. When the cake came out, your boys, cheered and sang to my nephew! As shyness took over him they still continued to sing and cheer for him! As we were leaving, my nephew said "did you see all those big boys singing and clapping for me?" They made his night!! Congratulations to a great group of young men!! Society could use many more fantastic role models like them!! Keep up the great work! Melissa
