KES Students to Visit University Campuses in Ontario/ Quebec

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 19, 2017 7:43:55 AM

There is nothing more exciting to a Senior Student then visiting and touring a university campus. It’s a student’s firsthand view of what university life is like, and get an opportunity to get information, ask questions and decide if that university if a good fit for their future aspirations. A campus visit allows a student to experience the people, the learning environment as well as see the dorms and walk around campus.

Students sign up to "Be More": KES Clubs and Activities Fair

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 18, 2017 3:51:43 PM

It is always exciting to chat with our new and returning students at the beginning of the year, and listen to what their goals are for the year ahead! Some students want to volunteer more in the local community, be in the school musical, or become a better public speaker, and others want to get involved in evening intramurals or learn a new language.  

Last Friday over lunch students gathered in the quad to hear all about what clubs and committees are offered this year at KES. Teachers and students creatively decorated tables, provided information, and encouraged students to sign up for clubs of interest.  

Here are some of the clubs we have offered at KES this year:

Alumnae Hockey Stars – Julia and Rita

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 10, 2017 12:51:00 PM

We are always happy to get updates from our alumni, and I was especially happy to receive news from my first hockey graduates,  Julia Schmitt (2014-17) and Rita Dorofeeva (2012-17). Julia and Rita both captained the hockey team last year and were a big part in our 4th place finish overall in the NAPHA! They were rewarded for their hard work on and off the ice and both received scholarships to attend Universities here in Atlantic Canada.

ESL Camp Update

The students have been making friends, studying hard and visiting a variety of Nova Scotia’s attractions. We enjoyed an educational walking tour of Oak Island, had a  shopping trip at Mic Mac Mall, went swimming and fishing at Aylesford Lake, and raced around the track at the Windsor Playland. The TOEFL Junior Assessment has been completed and results should be in soon. Students will perform in a variety show this afternoon and classes will conclude tomorrow. We are heading back to Oak Island for a few days and will have the pleasure of sailing on the Bluenose II, ocean kayaking off Lunenburg and touring the Ovens Provincial Park.

KES ESL Camp in Full Swing

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Aug 23, 2017 10:15:00 PM

Hello everyone and welcome to the King's-Edgehill English as a Second Language Summer School 2017 session. Students and families arrived on Saturday, Aug 19th. It was a chilly, rainy day; however, that did not dampen the excitement of the opening day of our camp. Many enthusiastic KES student volunteers and teachers were here to welcome the new families, help them settle into their rooms, and to start new friendships. We had campus tours, games in the gym, a parent reception at the Headmaster's home, and had a good time bowling in the evening. Welcome, everyone - we are looking forward to a great year together!
