On Saturday, November 25, 2017, three King’s-Edgehill School Math League teams visited Acadia University to compete in the first contest of the year. After a round of ten team questions and the pairs relay, and with only the individual relay remaining, our Math League Team of Phoebe Yuen, Yufei (Jessica) Wu and Jiashu (Jay) Liu finished it first; another of our Math League Teams of Qianhui (Venus) Hong, Ziyue (Shell) Jiang, Hsiao-Yu (Mia) Chen and Yue (Rebecca) Yu finished it third.
Congratulations, mathletes, and don’t forget we have practices on Tuesday evenings led by Captain Linxuan (Skyler) Li, and teachers Mr. Chris MacLean and Ms. Michelle Moon.
We hope to see interested mathletes at our next practices!
The arts make up one of the essential four pillars of a King’s-Edgehill School education. Some aspects such as Drama, Music and Visual Art, are part of the regular academic curriculum and are available as IB courses as well.
Over the weekend of October 28-29, a number of King's-Edgehill junior and senior debaters participated in the Nova Scotia Debating Society Annual Provincial Impromptu Tournament at Halifax Grammar School.
Topics ranged from discussions on the pros and cons of trade protectionism to whether or not parents should be held accountable for their child's bullying at school. Yes, 2 sides to all of these topics! Our debaters engaged in 4 preliminary rounds on Saturday and observed the semi-finals and finals on Sunday.
After months of intense planning, coding and robot building, the KES Robotics Club recently competed in a national competition in Montreal, Quebec and placed first against 12 other teams to qualify for the World Robotics Olympiad (WRO) that will take place later this fall.
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.
Each year King’s-Edgehill School offers students the chance to take their SATs – a necessary examination for any student thinking of applying to an American university.
Students who wish to write their SAT examinations during the 2017-18 academic year, will do so in October 2017 and therefore must register the first week in September. King’s-Edgehill School is a Supplementary Examination Centre for SAT’s, so our students do not need to travel Halifax to write the tests.
We encourage students who would like to write their SATs to adequately prepare for the test. Students can do this by practicing and taking a course, such as Kaplan.ca or Princeton Review and get a tutor, if required. Some of the courses are free, and some come with a cost, but many are offered online.
Choosing a university can be a daunting task, but at King’s-Edgehill School we work with our students to ensure they have the right resources and tools to choose the right university.
When choosing a university, we want KES students to not only look at the academic programming in question, but also ask: What is the campus culture like? Will this university properly prepare me for the career I am striving for? Is the school the right size for me? What is the community like outside of the campus? What scholarship opportunities are available to me? Does this school have the athletic or arts programming I am looking for? Is the school located within a distance from home that I am comfortable with?
