A Message from the Chaperones

Posted by Mr. Paul Hollett on May 7, 2022 7:30:00 PM

We arrived at school right on time at 4:45 pm today. The students' smiles and buoyant mood said it all: while it was great fun to be away, it's good to be home.

It has been a wonderful trip. We have enjoyed having the opportunity to take learning on the road with our Grade 8 students; their shared memories and experiences will be something they will cherish for years to come.

We extend a special thank you to all the parents who have supported our annual voyage to Quebec City. We know that this year's Grade 7 students are already looking forward to Québec 2023!

Students have the remainder of the weekend to rest up and to work on their travel journal which they will submit soon. They have lots of details of their trip to share with family and friends!

Au revoir à Québec

Posted by Mr. Paul Hollett on May 6, 2022 11:00:00 PM

We packed our bags this morning and got ready to say au revoir to Quebec City and begin the final leg of our road trip. The time has certainly flown by! After checking out of the hotel it was a short drive to the Museum of Civilization, where students explored the exhibits at their own pace.

Next, lunch and free time at Les Galeries de la Capitale shopping centre and indoor amusement park provided one final opportunity for retail therapy for our students before leaving Quebec City. 



After taking a group photo, we reluctantly said goodbye to our guide extraordinaire Gilles and thanked him for helping to make our stay such an enjoyable and rewarding one.



The drive to Edmundston, New Brunswick, went smoothly this afternoon. Once again, the weather cooperated fully, reminding us of how fortunate we have been to have had blue skies and sunshine for nearly the full duration of our trip. Upon arriving in Edmundston the first stop was for supper and there was something to suit everyone's tastes on the extensive menu at Maple Leaf Queen's Buffet. It was also very enjoyable to reconnect with the restaurant manager and staff whom we had not seen for three years. We also learned that we were their first bus group since the since the start of the pandemic.

After leaving the restaurant it was a short trip to the hotel where we settled in for the evening. Students enjoyed some social time in their rooms or in the pool until bedtime.

It has been another wonderful day with our group. We will make an early start tomorrow as we start the drive back to campus.

We plan to arrive at the Athletic Centre parking lot between 4:30 and 5:00 pm on Saturday. If there are any major changes to this schedule we will make every effort to update this blog to keep you informed.

Thank you for caring, Emily!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 7, 2021 8:37:14 AM

Our Junior School has an amazing group of caring and dedicated students; evidence of this is always around us in their chatter in the hallways, their leadership in the classroom and in the volunteering that they do.  In a year of lockdowns, there were limited opportunities for our students to leave the campus to do the volunteering that they love.  No cleanups at Camp Mockingee, no pharmacy or Mermaid Theatre volunteers, no reading with elementary school children, no serving lunches at Harvest House, and no hospital or nursing home visitations.  Despite that, our Juniors have still accumulated over 1125 hours of service since September, and I’m so proud of each of them for the garbage pickups, the peer tutoring, the volunteer coaching, the chapel service, and so much more.

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.

Lasting Joy of the Season comes from Giving

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 10, 2021 2:42:41 PM

Happy New Year!  Although holiday celebrations during these pandemic times were a little quieter than usual, the slower pace provided time to contemplate what really matters in our lives.  During this COVID Christmas season, the need to help and support others seemed amplified.  Our community response was widespread and meaningful.  Eight local families in need benefited from our student, staff and parental gift donations. How wonderful it must have been for these families to experience the magic of the holiday season on Christmas morning.  Our local Feed Nova Scotia Food Bank also benefited from the generosity of our community.  The bins under our Christmas Giving Tree were heaped full of non-perishable food items that were transported to the Windsor Food Bank on the final days of term.  Special thanks are extended to   Claire Morton, Danica Scully, Ava Shearer and  Reegan Wagg  who loaded the van and made the delivery, and to all the students and families who gave so generously.
