Bella Turner-Galaise has been preparing for the Canadian Wrestling Championships scheduled for April 5-7. She had a busy March break competing in our Senior Girls Prep hockey games in PEI as well as winning the PEI & NB Open Provincial Wrestling Championship tournaments. These three events have kept her busy over the break, and she has returned to School focused on preparing for the penultimate tournament of the year. She and team members, Team Captain, Téa Racozzi and Callum Lovelace have been training early each afternoon, prior to their additional new spring sports commitments, in preparation for the Nationals. The wrestling practices are short and intense and will continue every weekday afternoon prior to departing next week. This will be the first National Championship for all three wrestlers. Quinn Emery is helping to spar with and prepare his teammates and would be participating himself but he does not possess Canadian citizenship at this time. This event is where national team members are selected and citizenship is mandatory. He will be one to look for at this event next year. We are hopeful for some great results from these three student–athletes. Both Téa and Bella won GOLD at the high school provincials this year with Callum placing second in an upset.

On Friday, April 5th King’s-Edgehill School (KES) teachers, staff and students look forward to opening their doors to parents, prospective students and their siblings for a day designed to highlight why so many families choose KES.
We understand that selecting a private school for your children is a difficult decision and can be overwhelming. The KES Open House is designed to simplify the process by allowing you and your child to fully immerse in the KES experience. You will not only tour the campus and get to know some of our KES family, but you will have time to ask questions, explore the classrooms and hear, first hand, the value and enrichment opportunities KES provides each and every student.

On the boys side, Zach Logan won SILVER Individually in the Junior Boys Category. Together with his teammates Fox Sullivan, Greyson Corbett-Lumb, and Kaz Schnitzer, they took a team BRONZE place finish on the podium.
This final exhibition is the culmination of our students' IB experiences. They chose a selection of their work which articulates the purpose and intent of their show. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the quality and diversity of their work.
You are invited to attend our Junior School performance of Freaky Friday on Friday, April 12th at 7:00pm and Saturday, April 13th at 2:00pm & 7:00pm.
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other's shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one another's struggles, learn self-acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter. For Freaky Friday we have the two leads; Hannah and Maya talk about their role in the play and their experiences in theatre.
My name is Maya Faucher and I am the mother (Katherine) in Freaky Friday. Katherine is about to have her own wedding with her fiancé Mike. Katherine’s daughter Ellie is a typical teenage girl that Katherine has trouble handling sometimes. This will be my 6th play at KES. I was a daughter in the play ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, a backup singer in ‘School Of Rock’, a stepsister in ‘Cinderella’, and part of the ensemble in the plays ‘42nd Street’ and ‘Mama Mia’. I am very excited to end my Junior School musical experience with such a fun play like ‘Freaky Friday’! I hope you enjoy our show!
My name is Hannah Bryant and for this year’s Junior School Musical, ‘Freaky Friday’, I am playing the daughter, Ellie Blake. I love participating in musicals, being on stage singing and dancing is my happy place. Ever since I was young, I have competed in music festivals singing and playing the piano, so I was introduced to music at a young age. In Grade 6, I was Arial in ‘The Little Mermaid’ for my school musical. Last year in Grade 8 when I came to at King’s-Edgehill, I joined the Senior School musical, ‘42nd Street’, playing Phillis. Later in the year, I was the fairy godmother in ‘Cinderella’, the Junior School musical. This year I was in the ensemble for the Senior School musical, ‘Mamma Mia’, which was a blast. I am very excited about this year’s performance for ‘Freaky Friday’, and I hope to see you there!
