Exams on the timetable as semesters alternate

While visiting William E. Hay Composite High School last week, Dr. Jason Donev from the University of Calgary gave a presentation

While visiting William E. Hay Composite High School last week, Dr. Jason Donev from the University of Calgary gave a presentation to two Grade 9 science classes on energy use (specifically electric energy) in Alberta and Canada.

He reviewed all of the current sources of electrical power and provided pros and cons for each. Dr. Donev brought an actual piece of machinery from a nuclear reactor that’s used to hold the uranium fuel rods, which each student was allowed to hold and inspect.

By the end of the presentation, the students were left with a much clearer picture of our current energy use issues and some of the challenges that our province and country face in the future.

Mrs. Jones’ CALM class went on a field trip to investigate the costs of an apartment building, as part of their project that has them budgeting and learning the cost of living in the “real world.”

Exemption forms were handed out last Friday morning. Students who have exemplary attendance are able to exempt one final exam per semester.

Those forms must be signed by parents and handed in today.

Today is the last day of Semester 1 classes for all students. Exams run from this Thursday through next Tuesday.

The semester break is Wednesday, Jan. 30, and we resume classes for the second semester on Thursday, Jan. 31.

Students who have timetable changes for Semester 2 should see Mr. Aspenes or Mrs. Enyedy in Student Services to have the necessary changes made.

That’s it for this week. Keep checking the Stettler Independent each week for more school news from William E. Hay.
