Revealing the 2019-2020 Arts Pin

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 31, 2020 8:05:50 AM

For the past two years, we have designed a new pin for our Arts Gala. The last two designs have been different versions of the drama masks. This year, with the help of Tom Gray from International Coat of Arms, we came up with a design that would include all our Arts programmes. Here is the big reveal of the new Arts pin!

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.

Swinging into Spring with a Tune or Two

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 15, 2020 6:39:00 AM

As part of our Distance Learning Programme, and music related, I have required my music students to submit a sample of their practical performance via recordings. At our School, there are two young ladies who are inseparable. Meet   Annika Zeggelaar  (long blonde hair) &   Anastasia Dewar  (short brown hair). These two Grade 8 girls spend most of their days together and they're also in the same music class. The music classes are ensemble based, so I don't frequently get to hear their solo musical productivity. In these different times, I am getting an opportunity to do just that, so individuals are having to submit to me their solo performance work. While you take a moment to look at the photographs of these two Gals hanging out together, especially the pic of them on the swings, take a listen to their piano and singing performances. When you hear them, each speak to the demeanour of the individual and both are attractive. Kids and music: what could possibly be better?

German Baking with Frau Stuart Episode 3: Kiwitorte

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 12, 2020 5:40:00 PM

Spring is here, bringing more of its gorgeous colours each day. In Germany, spring and summer are the times for so called “Obstkuchen” or “Obsttorten”, fresh or canned fruit cakes. You can take a break from your studies, sit on your porch in the sun with a cup of tea and sweeten your day with a piece of “Kiwitorte”. I chose this recipe not only for its popularity during warm weather but also for nostalgic reasons since not a spring or summer goes by without my Mom making this cake at least once. Whenever Mr. Stuart, the kids and I visit my family in the summer, “Kiwitorte” is on the menu. For me, it is the taste of home. With my parents not being able to travel to visit us in Nova Scotia as they had planned due to COVID-19, I thought I would at least make something that reminds me of them. So here is to my parents in Germany!

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!

KES Relay for Life

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 6, 2020 7:05:00 PM

This year, our School had decided to hold a Relay for Life event in an effort to raise funds for Cancer research as well as showing support for the many individuals in our community who have been touched by Cancer. Our committee of 13 students has been hard at work training and planning, and was excited to announce   May 30th  as our event day; however, the global fight against COVID-19 has meant that we had to return to the drawing board and re-envision this event.
