Virtual Volunteering

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 17, 2021 10:12:05 AM

Years from now, we will look back on the COVID-19 lockdown and remember where we were, what we did, and how we coped.  Some will be able to say, “I made a difference for someone else during this difficult time.”  It is true that one of the best ways to deal with the uncertainty and anxiety associated with the pandemic is to focus on helping others.  I have discovered that several of our students quietly are doing just that.    Fox Sullivan,   Hunter Hood,   Dami Adeniji  and   Chaz Faucher  have taken advantage of spring afternoons to get outside in their respective communities and pick up garbage.    Isabella Barker  is focusing on greening up her community as well through a highway clean-up program.  She complements her outdoor activities by making creative cards of caring for the elderly and lonely.    Eva Palov  has dedicated hours of her time as well to card creations that spread messages of support and hope.  And there are many others who do the same.  Students don’t have to look far to find meaningful ways to help others.

Going the Distance in Distance Learning

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 13, 2021 5:35:00 PM

We are now in the second week of our Junior School Distance Learning (DL) program, and there is no question that everyone is missing the physical connectedness of being together on campus.  Staying safe and protecting those around us remain our shared priorities. Despite the reputation of mental malaise associated with universal virtual learning, I commend our students and teachers for responding to the challenge in true “Highlander” form.

Almost, Maine

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 11, 2021 5:34:00 PM

John Cariani, the playwright of  Almost, Maine, describes his play as "people falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend...". These are the stories of average, everyday people who experience the unexpected; just like us, currently living in extraordinary times.

Almost Maine - Meet Our Cast and Crew

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 5, 2021 4:01:35 PM

Almost, Maine  has been one of the top high school play productions for the past few years, and it offers a collection of short love scenes, exploring new-found love, long-lasting friendships that take an exciting leap of faith, or partnerships whose love has dissolved over time. With the world’s problems weighing heavily on our shoulders, our Senior School students present uplifting and inspiring stories that remind us of the good things in life. Even when faced with adversity, love will find a way.   Almost, Maine  was brought to you by enthusiastic and spirited students who are bursting with bright talent. Thank you to our backstage members   Sarah, Lily, Maeve, and  Qiaoman  for interviewing the cast and crew and for writing Newsletter articles each week.

A Great Training Year for the 254!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 3, 2021 3:31:07 PM

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases within the province, the Canadian Cadet Organization has deemed it necessary to suspend ‘in person’ Cadet training.  Therefore, there will be no Cadet Training conducted until our COVID numbers drop considerably.  While this is not good news, I want to reflect on the great training year we had.

After a very successful School science fair, a number of our students were chosen to represent KES at the Regional level.  This year’s fair was a little different due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Each student created a 5-7 minute video presentation of their board to the judges, and uploaded this video and their research papers to the Regional website.  The results are in and I’m very excited to share with you how well our students have done!
