Angel & Jennifer - Treat You Better

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 19, 2020 7:41:00 AM

Occasionally, I like to highlight various coffee house performances, and this time I am featuring Grade 10 students,   Angel Li and Jennifer Liang. At our coffee houses students have the opportunities to be spontaneous. We're a very busy school and so there is little extra-curricular time for rehearsal; nevertheless, the performances are always good. What is equally pleasing is the acceptance and support that the performers get from those in attendance. All promises and expectations are left at the door. That's what music is really all about, isn't it? Enjoy   their performance  of Shawn Mendes' hit,   Treat You Better.

Buzzing for a Cure

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 11, 2020 8:58:41 PM

This year our School had decided to host a Relay For Life event on May 30th. This mission is still important to us and so we are moving the event online as a part of Relay for Life’s “Relay at Home” event and are excited to be hosting 6 weeks of fundraising initiatives, challenges and sharing of stories through our digital communities in Facebook and Instagram.

Each week we will announce a new fundraising goal in exchange for a fun teacher challenge. Our first challenge began this Wednesday and will run until we reach our   first goal of $300.   When we reach this goal, Mr. Faucher has agreed to get a buzz cut!

Adam Ullock: Making the world a better place, one bag at a time

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 30, 2020 9:17:00 AM

Adam Ullock  attended KES from 2001-2003.  He was a Prefect, Captain of the Varsity Boys’ Hockey Team (as well as the MVP), and an integral member of the Boys’ Varsity Rugby Team.  In 2004, Adam returned to KES to become a Houseparent in the Boys’ Dorm and to help coach the Senior Boys’ Hockey Team with his former coach, Chris Strickey.  Alas, Adam eventually left KES to pursue the culinary arts.  Adam is now a chef who resides here in Nova Scotia; however, it isn’t his cooking that brings him to our attention this week!   Earth Day was Wednesday, April 22nd and it is only apropos to highlight a movement that Adam and a few of his friends started on March 29th to make our world a better place.

Before our world got turned upside down, our KES Grade 12 IB Visual Arts students were scheduled to unveil their masterpieces at our Annual IB Art show on April 2, 2020. It is always a highlight of the School year. Nineteen students were to present the projects that they have been working on for the last two years. Their creations are examined and therefore are an important part of the IB Diploma. We admire not only their skills and creativity but also their courage in sharing their work with us. Please join us in congratulating our 2020 Visual Arts students on their hard work and their achievements.

We will be highlighting our very talented IB Visual Art students each week in our Newsletter. I introduce   Mya Snarr:
