Inside King's-Edgehill School

Wrestling Provincials

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 20, 2020 10:22:00 AM

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines vigor as “active bodily or mental strength or force”. Coach Walsh and I are happy say that this noun accurately describes the approach our wrestlers at King’s-Edgehill School took towards our recently concluded season. They spent hundreds of hours of preparation in a small basement room, up and down the Athletic Center stairs, and in the weight room, during which time our student-athletes stayed on top of their academic responsibilities.

Indoor Soccer Awards the Golden Boot

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 19, 2020 7:22:00 AM

The Indoor Soccer League wrapped up with what was an exciting game between “Tenacious T” and the “Pilingas”. The final game finished in overtime with penalty kicks, and after a competitive battle, the Pilingas took home the prestigious Golden Boot Award! This was an excellent season for participation, with eight teams playing in games each week throughout the winter, and many spectators also coming to cheer on friends. Those who came out to play or watch on Tuesday and Thursday nights saw a high level of play, amazing saves by some talented keepers, and a good balance of intensity and sportsmanship.

Madi Taljaard Shoots to Success

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 18, 2020 7:21:00 PM

Madi Taljaard has once again distinguished herself as a Cadet Biathlete at the National level. Madi attended the Cadet Biathlon Nationals at Canadian Forces Base Valcartier last week as a member of Team Nova Scotia. This talented young lady is just fresh off Cadet Zones where she won GOLD, and Nova Scotia Provincials where she won two GOLD medals. Madi produced some great results in Valcartier. In the 6 km Sprint race, she placed 9th overall in Canada. The Patrol Race produced a result of 4th position in the nation with Madi shooting clean, 10 for 10. The final race was the Mass start. In this heated 7.5 km competition, Madi placed 6th in the nation and beat everyone else in Atlantic Canada, shooting 14 out of 20 targets. In addition to her amazing talent as a biathlete, Madi was also given the Most Heart Spirit Award in the Games. With cries of “When I say Nova, you say Scotia”, the team from Nova Scotia was named the Most Spirited group at the competition. Way to go, Madi. Well done!

Junior School Snow Sport Day 2020

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 18, 2020 5:20:00 PM

It was a beautiful wintry day; the sun was shining brightly, and the air was crisp—ideal conditions for our Junior School Snow Sport Day. It was the perfect day to take a break from the regular routine and head to Ski Martock for some outdoor recreation and fun. For the novice or the more experienced, there was fun for everyone. For some, it was their first time ever to step into a pair of skis or strap on a snowboard. This was the case for   Mr. LePoidevin  who tried snowboarding for the first time!   Mr. Kershaw  stayed close by and, though a beginner himself, offered tips and encouragement.

Big Win for our Annual KES Hoopla Tournament

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 18, 2020 10:20:00 AM

Tuesday’s Hoopla Tournament heralded the end to the Basketball season here at KES. Six junior high teams, including two co-ed ones from KES, began playing at 9:00am and the cheers, smiles, and competition didn't stop until the end of the day. As always, Kevin Lake’s secret weapon, the Run-Dribble-Shoot Competition, was a hit with our very own   Colin Stephens  losing out in the final round for second place! In tournament play, six teams registered at least one win on the day, and there were quite a few close games. When the dust settled, our KES "A" team won the final by 9 points over CK. While our Junior basketball players gave their all in the floor, what was equally as impressive was the work done by three of our Grade 10 students.   Kyle Clanachan  (with the A team) and   Jess Keripe and  Gala Holm  (with our B team) were phenomenal in their coaching roles. They did a great job to make sure our players had a great experience and should be commended for volunteering their time.
