Gendre wrestles gold medal in Calgary

Much like the past week, the upcoming weeks for William E. Hay Composite High School students and teachers are filled

Much like the past week, the upcoming weeks for William E. Hay Composite High School students and teachers are filled with exciting activities.

The William E. Hay senior and junior basketball teams have been very busy this season. Two weekends ago, the senior girls travelled to Bentley and won all three games to bring home gold. Congratulations.

The senior girls’ and senior boys’ host tournaments this Friday and Saturday (see the sports section for more).

Staff and students at the school would also like to congratulate Carlie Gendre, who travelled to Calgary this month for the Churchill wrestling tournament and ended up winning gold in her division.

The Cosmetology 2.2 class made homemade facial masks on Valentine’s Day as a treat to each other. Common ingredients used were oatmeal, honey, yogurt and, of course, cucumbers on the eyes!

The ladies had a wonderful time pampering their peers, and look forward to pampering more clients in the future.

During the next few weeks, the Teacher Advisory classes in the school will participate in the yearly fundraiser, “Pennies for Patients.”

“Pennies for Patients” is a fundraiser for leukemia treatments. Students are asked to bring in their pennies and place them in the boxes located in their TA classrooms. The class that raises $50 in pennies will win a Domino’s pizza party for their Teacher Advisory classes.

The fundraiser began Feb. 11 and will continue till March.18.

The School Reach Team had a match last Wednesday in the school. They had a fantastic showing. The A team lost just one match. The competition proved to be extremely tight, but our teams played well.

The Stettler Concert Band is going to Disneyland. This year, the band was accepted to perform in front of the Disneyland Castle. The trip will take place between May 8 ad 13.

A representative team from William E. Hay, consisting of seven staff members and three students, will head to Washington, where they will make a presentation at the National Secondary School Principal/Centre for Secondary School Redesign Conference.

We’re the first international school to ever be asked to present at the conference. The presentation will be on how “Removing Barriers Leads to Transformational Change in High School” and will reflect the journey of William E. Hay over the last four years of our High School Flexibility Enhancement Pilot Project with Alberta Education.
