This Tuesday, our Girls’ Prep Hockey Team travelled to Sydney for their first game of the season where they defeated the Cape Breton Lynx Major Midget Team by a 2-1 score.  Due to the pandemic, this was the first game that any of our girls have played in eight months which in the hockey world is an eternity!

Senior Boys Soccer vs Horton JV

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 14, 2020 9:45:00 PM

Although practice has been vigorous and engaging throughout September, some competition is really what our guys needed.  Horton JV Senior Boys were gracious enough to come to campus for a friendly match on October 5 th  where all our male players could participate.    Coaches Spengler  and   Dietrich  organized the entire crew (almost enough for two teams) and the boys gave it their best.

KES Athletics Celebrated!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 3, 2020 6:13:00 PM

It was great to be able to celebrate our Annual KES Athletic Banquet last Thursday evening. I was very pleased to see and hear so many of our Coaches chatting on Zoom prior to the 8:00 pm start of the event. I truly appreciate the time, commitment and passion that our Coaches invest in our athletics programme. I shared with the audience, that although there is an expectation for our faculty to coach for two terms, we have had about a dozen, over the past couple of decades, who coach more than two terms of sport. This reflects the selflessness and commitment to our student-athletes. These coaches share many highs and lows with their teams and develop strong bonds with the students, while mentoring the essential life skills that we learn in sport and then apply to life.

Some Final Thoughts from Coach Stuart

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 3, 2020 1:18:00 PM

Humans are creatures of habit. This is especially true for athletes and, particularly so, for the young men of the King’s-Edgehill Rugby Team. These habits sometimes transcend into rituals, and rituals serve important functions. They give meaning to our endeavours, they provide comfort in a world that can sometimes seem chaotic, and they serve as steppingstones on the way to desired short-term and long-term goals. Most importantly, they help construct a feeling of collective identity that forms a sense of belonging. In addition to their ingrained understanding of the importance of hard work, a sense of belonging helps our athletes buy into the considerable amount of effort required in a programme like ours and, more significantly, contributes to the lifelong friendships that are formed here.

OUR Final Year

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 29, 2020 9:16:00 AM

Being a high school senior in the year 2020 is questionable. To us, the elimination of being physically present in class and having to do online school is no vacation. We are now missing out on valuable time we get to share with our friends, coaches, and teachers before we graduate. We - graduating students - are sitting in isolation due to COVID-19, anxiously looking at our calendars, watching every event we had planned just pass by. I personally have a severe case of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Students are not only missing out on the special year end events but are also missing the daily moments that build a family bond between the staff and students.

Social distancing provides a lot of time to think. During all this thinking, we start to realise we may never be able to take the field again with some of our best friends and teammates. Milestones we’ve waited for our whole lives have been robbed from us; like events such as Cadet Ball, Prom, and our Graduation Ceremony. Some people won't understand, but these are the nights that give us closure from high school, the nights spent celebrating all those late hours of studying for the test you may or may not pass.
