Rugby Canada Identification Camp

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 25, 2018 7:49:00 AM

Last weekend, some of the top female rugby players from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, and Newfoundland were invited to the East Hants Sportsplex to participate in an identification camp run by Rugby Canada’s Senior Women’s head coach Sandro Fiorino. Three of our students,  Amy Marchand-Dion, Morgan Rogers, and  Camryn Kleynhans  were invited to participate.

Morgan  and   Camryn  were both able to attend the two-day event, while   Amy  was unable to attend due to her basketball commitments here at School. Over the course of the weekend, the girls took part in both on-field sessions to improve their skills, but also off-field ones which focused on their individual goals and the pathways available to them through the national program.

Captain Pins

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 9, 2018 7:51:02 AM

At our most recent assembly, we presented lapel pins to 26 of our students who have been named or appointed captains of their respective varsity teams during both the Fall and Winter seasons. This is the first year we’ve presented these “Captain Pins” and they serve as a way to formally recognize the leadership positions these student-athletes hold as a part of their athletic commitments here at the School. These students have also been taking part in our Captain’s Council leadership programme which helps to support and further develop our students’ leadership abilities.

The pin itself shows our School’s athletic crest surrounded by green laurel. Laurel is a symbolic image as it was awarded to the champions of the first Olympic Games in ancient Greece. Interestingly, it was also customary for laurel to be awarded to distinguished poets as well, which is fitting considering how committed our own athletic leaders are to their academic studies. The expression “don’t rest on your laurels” is also derived from this symbol and will serve as a constant reminder for our captains to continue to grow as leaders within our School community.
