Inside King's-Edgehill School

Equestrians Hit the Airwaves

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 18, 2021 8:49:00 PM

The Equestrian programme at King’s-Edgehill School is enjoying the winter hiatus as the students move to winter-based sporting activities.  The programme was in full swing in the fall and will ramp up again in the spring.  In 2020, our programme caught the attention of a radio personality with Zoomer Radio.  Susan Jamieson hosts By the Love of Horses.  In November, Susan conducted a telephone interview with one of our current riders, Elena Julien (Grade 10) and alumna, Sabrina Corradini (Class of 2017).  Elena is a seasoned rider in our Equestrian programme and Sabrina is an Assistant Trainer at Fox Hollow Stables.  Both Elena and Sabrina recounted favourite horse stories and the elements that brought them both to King’s-Edgehill School and the Equestrian programme.

Look for more updates on our Equestrian programme when the spring programme starts.

We Celebrate Coach Phillip Hadley

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 18, 2021 8:49:12 AM

Phillip Hadley  has been Head Coach of our track and field and cross-country running programmes since he came to our School 6 years ago.  His student–athletes and teams have won numerous regional and provincial championships, as individuals and teams. His greatest success is the consistent improvement and personal bests that his athletes have achieved under his guidance. He has also provided mentorship to his many capable Assistant Coaches. He was nominated last spring for the   Celebration of School Sport Award  for King’s-Edgehill School. The award recognizes those, “who exemplify the qualities the NSSAF strives to develop through participation in school sport. They are true examples of good sportsmanship; they demonstrate respect for others, and they are our 'best' teacher-coaches.”

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.
