254 Improv

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 21, 2020 5:00:48 PM

Our Cadet Leaders stepped up this week and tried their hands at Classroom Instruction.  It was very successful when you consider that the last time any of our students gave a Cadet lecture was in November of 2019.  Our future leaders learned the Principles of Instruction while the Junior platoons learned the basics of the Cadet Movement. When you have great leaders like   WO Lily Gale, Greg Otto and  Mikaela Hinds, success is guaranteed.

Fiddle Tunes for Fall Colours

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 20, 2020 7:19:09 PM

At this time of year in Nova Scotia, the trees are changing to their fall colours, and keeping in stride with the beauty of the country landscape is a celebration of our traditional music, most notably being the music of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. There are usually live concerts, but there are fewer this year due to the pandemic restrictions, and most of the performances are streamed on the internet. Celtic Colours International Festival began on October 9th and runs through to October 17th and, I encourage you to follow the link to enjoy some of our local talent.

A King’s-Edgehill Thanksgiving

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 19, 2020 7:18:54 PM

We have so much to be thankful for.  Each day we gather as a School community, I am reminded of how fortunate we are to be together after such a long separation after the onset of COVID-19.  Now in the second month of school, we certainly are grateful for each other, every day.  Last Wednesday, our boarding community gathered for the annual Headmaster’s Thanksgiving Dinner.  While we couldn’t gather as our entire community of 300+, the kitchen staff created an amazing hot ham and turkey dinner for our boarding bubble, with delicious leftovers providing an extra special lunch for our entire community the following day.

Cadets 254 Goes Under Canvas

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 17, 2020 8:39:00 AM

Cadets in the 254 do a variety of training.  With the new COVID-19 environment, we are making every effort this year to remain outdoors.  With this in mind, we enlisted the aid of the Supply Section of 14 Wing Greenwood.  The Wing provided us with Modular Tents.  For anyone unfamiliar with Mod Tents just remember the old MASH series on TV.  They had these long tents, 16 feet wide, 9 ft high built in many 8-foot sections.  On Wednesday afternoon, all our Platoon Sergeants, under the tutelage of the CO, learned how to construct the Mod Tent.

Moon Festival

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 15, 2020 7:03:17 PM

Chinese people celebrate the Mid-Autumn on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese lunar calendar. The widely accepted origin of the festival is the tale of Chang E, a goddess who lives on the moon and meets with her husband every year on this day.  Extended families get together to see the moon while eating and sharing the moon cakes. These yummy treats symbolize reunion and happiness.
