In anticipation of Earth Day on Saturday, April 22nd, students spent Wednesday getting in touch with nature and being stewards of the environment. Once again, Mr. Kershawset the tone for the day by cycling to School from his home in Wolfville, a distance of 35 km; even the cold morning temperatures did not deter him. During Assembly, Rustam Kulizade, Matvey Semenenko and Michael Pitaev did an informative presentation on their Russian homeland, highlighting their culture, geography, politics and food. It fit our Earth Day theme as we were reminded that, although we are almost 7000 km from Moscow, we are all connected globally to our one Earth. Later, a delicious Russian lunch was arranged by the boys and enjoyed by all. We also had a special visitor in Assembly: Jayden Morrow (Grade 8) brought in her five-year-old pet ball python and taught us a great deal about this interesting species. Its docile temperament and beautiful markings made it a great show piece and was a topic of discussion throughout the day.
The day had finally arrived. The uniforms were crisp and sharp, the pennants were positioned properly, and the flagpoles were sized for height. Best of all, the 254 Drill Team was ready to go. Resplendent in full Highland dress, the cadets of the 254 were piped onto parade at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. The skirl of the pipes made the blood race through the veins of the audience as they watched the impeccable deportment of these fine young men and women. The pipers fell silent as the Drill Team Commander, Warrant Officer Josh Dupigny, executed flawless drill and positioned himself at the observation point. The quick march of St Catherine's played over the audience and the Drill Team was off. Acting in perfect precision, they executed the movements with dash and skill. The music changed to Road to the Isles, and the team progressed into the Slow March. The dressing was spot on, the bodies were erect with head and eyes straight to the front. Before our team could think about it, the strains of Highland Laddie broke through and the wave of the precision pennant drill commenced.
