Inside King's-Edgehill School

KES Earth Day

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 4, 2017 6:43:27 AM

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.

No Verbs to Conjugate!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Dec 15, 2016 7:58:00 AM

Xie xie to the inventors of Mandarin. Recently during Mandarin class, the students learned that you do not conjugate verbs in that language, nor do you have to learn different verb tenses. What wonderful news to all who are meeting each Wednesday evening to take language lessons. A helpful, patient group of Chinese and Taiwanese students generously volunteer their time to teach their wonderful language to those interested in learning it. We are having a blast! All efforts to speak are applauded. As a bonus, we are learning many things about the culture of these countries, too. Lessons will pick up again on January 4th, 2017 and are held once a week on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00 pm. All are welcome. If you are interested in joining us in January, please contact me.
