Congratulations to the Grade 9 Class of 2021!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 8, 2021 8:37:49 AM

On Wednesday, June 2 nd, we honoured our graduating Grade 9 Class of 2021.  While the COVID-19 pandemic prevented our 34 Grade 9 students and their parents from gathering on campus to celebrate with our customary Graduation Banquet, technology allowed us to gather virtually and to connect, contribute and celebrate meaningfully together.   A keepsake YouTube video was launched at 7:00 pm (KES time) and students from as far away as 12,000 kilometres watched in real time and joined in the group Zoom reception that followed.

It can be very tricky!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 7, 2021 8:37:00 PM

At the beginning of our distance learning phase, for their Health & Wellness class, the Grades 6 and 7 students were assigned the task of recording their own trick shots. There were no boundaries to their imagination, and they were free to do whatever they wanted, as long as it was fun. It was very entertaining to watch all the creative and fabulous submissions coming in. You can tell that everyone put some thought into their shots, and they tried very hard to be perfect and almost everyone succeeded.

What do day students do for wellness when not in class?

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 26, 2021 9:07:00 AM

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been taking advantage of the local outdoor facilities by golfing each week. It has been a great opportunity to get some fresh air, see friends (safely), and stay active. Can’t wait to see Mr. Faucher back on the course.

Virtual Volunteering

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 17, 2021 10:12:05 AM

Years from now, we will look back on the COVID-19 lockdown and remember where we were, what we did, and how we coped.  Some will be able to say, “I made a difference for someone else during this difficult time.”  It is true that one of the best ways to deal with the uncertainty and anxiety associated with the pandemic is to focus on helping others.  I have discovered that several of our students quietly are doing just that.    Fox Sullivan,   Hunter Hood,   Dami Adeniji  and   Chaz Faucher  have taken advantage of spring afternoons to get outside in their respective communities and pick up garbage.    Isabella Barker  is focusing on greening up her community as well through a highway clean-up program.  She complements her outdoor activities by making creative cards of caring for the elderly and lonely.    Eva Palov  has dedicated hours of her time as well to card creations that spread messages of support and hope.  And there are many others who do the same.  Students don’t have to look far to find meaningful ways to help others.

Earth Day 2021

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 25, 2021 4:25:33 PM

Although Thursday, April 22 nd, was officially Earth Day, every day is a day to celebrate, protect and restore our Earth.  A consistent approach to environmental stewardship is necessary.  On Wednesday, April 21 st, the Junior School actively marked Earth Day 2021 with the help of our Green Team representatives   Sadie  Junger, Claire Morton, Jessica Etou and Ellie Blois.    Mr. Kershaw  and   Mr. LePoidevin  set the tone for the day by cycling to School from the Wolfville/Port Williams area, a round trip of over 60 km. Students took part in learning activities in the morning, including a discussion and analysis of each student’s carbon footprint.  Students assessed and compared their   ‘footprint’ results and created personal plans that could be shared with their families.

The 8B Times

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 23, 2021 1:26:00 PM

The following newspaper you are about to read is individually and collectively created by my Grade 8 English class. Recently, we finished learning about different speech writing techniques and types. While speeches are delivered by the presenter themselves (whether that be verbally or through sign), it is important to remember how a speech presents itself as a written page; to help students remember this, we compiled our speeches into a newspaper for others to read. Students selected their own topic and style while being challenged to add in a few specific requirements like interviewing and using power words.

The 254 Starts Spring Training

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 7, 2021 1:28:00 PM

The winter white, frost and freezing rain are now behind us.  The Corps is back on Jakeman Field as the spring is upon us.  The 254 is back in action.  We immediately launched into some intensive drill training to rid ourselves of the rust of winter.  Mistakes were made all around and then the drills kicked in and the Corps stood up and marched.  Of course, the ceremonial season is upon us, so it was time to learn a new movement.
