Riders Tack Up

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Nov 14, 2020 8:57:00 AM

This term, I had the pleasure of working with Ms Stephanie Fillman as co-chaperone of the King’s-Edgehill School Equestrian programme.  Two days per week we would go to Fox Hollow Stables with our young charges and observe as the owner operator, Ms Jill Redden, put them through their paces.  Ms Redden was ably assisted by one of our favorite Alumni, Ms Sabrina Corradini (2014-17), an accomplished rider and a former Warrant Officer in the 254.  These young ladies are in their element in the saddle.  It is truly enjoyable to watch them as they season their skills.

Senior Girls Soccer - More Grit and Determination!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Nov 12, 2020 7:52:00 AM

Last Saturday afternoon’s Western Regional D1 Girls’ Soccer Championship game was held at Horton High School between the 1st place Horton Griffins and the 2nd place King’s-Edgehill School. Earlier league results between the two teams, a 0-0 tie at KES and a 4-0 Horton win on Griffin home soil, would mean nothing in this winner-take-all battle to determine the Western Region’s representative in the provincial championship play in semi-final round this coming Saturday.

Medal Winning Runners!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Nov 1, 2020 4:05:18 PM

Microwave version: François Richard ‘21 dominates Senior Boys’ 6km to be Provincial Champion 2020.  Not since 1992 and Paul Archibald '93 has a KES student been champion.  Aria MacDonald ‘21 goes beyond herself to be on the podium with a BRONZE medal.

Any race we would have this season would be a great race.  Just getting to race was a win.  We had our first one last week with our Western Region Championship victory in the Senior Boys’ race, with Grade 12 students Aria MacDonald and François Richard taking the individual GOLDS. Unfortunately, only Aria and François and other individual qualifiers from around Nova Scotia could compete in Halifax on Monday at Point Pleasant Park for the NSSAF Provincial Championship as no teams could qualify.

KES Senior Girls' Soccer Progress With Some Tough Results

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 25, 2020 11:21:48 AM

Our KES Senior Girls’ Soccer team certainly met their match this past week as they played a two-game set against perennial Valley District power-house Horton High School Griffins. On Saturday afternoon, both teams put on a true display of grit and determination, especially during a 40-minute torrential deluge on the Jakeman Field artificial surface. Had the game been played on almost any other field, assuredly the match officials would have stopped the game and declared the field unplayable due to enormous puddling on and over a grass field’s surface. However, much credit goes to both teams for persevering and carrying on in the face of sheets of rain pounding them and the field of play. After ninety hard minutes of end-to-end action, great passing, hard tackles and a few squandered chances on both sides, the 0-0 result, and one point apiece in the standings, was a fair outcome for both teams. As it turned out, KES and Horton shared top spot in the standings with 3 wins and a tie, good enough for 10 points each following this encounter. This game set up a great re-match for Tuesday afternoon, this time at the home of the Griffins, when both teams met again at 4:00pm with first place on the line, and just in time for their game kit to have dried out!
