Hannah Stilwell '23 to Appear in Neptune Theatre's YPCo Production of Little Women

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 1, 2022 9:45:18 AM

When Hannah Stilwell ’23 speaks about the arts, her eyes light up and her smile grows wide.

A Grade 11 IB music student, Hannah has taken a keen interest in the arts for as long as she can remember. “I tend to lean toward the music side of the performing arts, because that’s where I got my training – when I was eight, I starred in Upstage Studio’s musical production of Annie,” said Hannah. “I started taking voice lessons and choral singing when I was seven years old, so singing really has a special place in my heart.”

Linda Jia '23 Creates a Buzz at Dalhousie's Regional Brain Bee

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 11, 2022 8:00:00 AM



On Friday, April 29, Grade 11 student Linda Jia competed in the Halifax Brain Bee, hosted by the Dalhousie University Brain Repair Centre. The event brought together 11 students in Grades 10-12 from around Nova Scotia to test their knowledge about the brain and neuroscience research. 

Students were given topics in advance to study including memory, sleep, intelligence, emotion, perception, stress, aging, brain imaging, neurology, neurotransmitters, genetics, and brain disease – just to name a few!



Once Linda found out about the competition, she got right to work and began reviewing the massive amount of material that Dalhousie had provided. As our students often do, she took notes, made an outline, and forwarded her questions to Mrs. Shari Hadley for extra help – all in addition to her other studies and commitments. As a Grade 11 biology student, she had not yet had the opportunity to study the nervous system, so there was no shortage of effort that went into learning the material.

As the first-ever KES student to participate in this competition, Linda came out strong with a respectable third place finish, proudly putting KES students on the map within the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Dalhousie University. 



After the competition, students were given a tour of the labs and witnessed first-hand the cutting edge research being conducted by grad students. It was a wonderful experience for Linda and a valuable experience for all! We look forward to bringing more interested students to next year's competition. 

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year's event!

Emerging Leaders – Yasu Hojo '25

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 19, 2022 1:01:09 PM

The first Grade 9 Emerging Leader that we will focus on in 2022 is first year student Yasu Hojo. Although Yasu lives just a short walk from King’s-Edgehill School now, his road to becoming a student here was a unique one. Born and raised in one the world’s largest cities, Tokyo, Japan, Yasu and his family (including Grade 6 student Ken) moved to Charlottetown, PEI when Yasu was ten years old so that he and his brother could improve their English. Yasu noted that it was a “really big” change relocating, but despite the drastic change of scenery around him, one thing that was consistent was his love of baseball.
