There were a couple of tournaments besides CARA/CWAJHAA that the students will be able to take part in. For these dates will be sent home as soon as they are available. CARA will be held on Wednesday, May 3. We have two students representing Wm. E. Hay at the 40th annual CASAA Senior Bowl Girls’ Basketball. Congrats to Alyssa Henderson and Reesa Garez who will be playing on Monday, March 20 at Red Deer College. The Senior Bowl features top graduating high school players from the CASAA 3A and 4A.

Congratulations to the JV girls who went undefeated this season and winning zones this weekend in Red Deer. The girls had an amazing season, way to go girls. Girls’ rugby practices have started in the high school gymnasium. Sessions are non-contact and require running shoes and gym attire. All new players are welcome and Mr. Elliott or Ms. Weir can answer any of the questions.

All of our School Reach students at all levels secured top spots, with plenty of firsts and seconds.

Grade 8 students will be taking part in our annual Renaissance Fair on Thursday, March 23 as part of their Social Studies unit. Things will kickoff at 11 a.m. with students getting into costume, followed by the Meet and Greet activity and then lunch at 12:15 p.m. In the afternoon, students will watch “A Knight’s Tale” as a culmination to the day’s event.

Students’ Union will be helping out with this Global Tourist Day on March 22. Each TA class will have a country they will be responsible for finding facts about, decorating their room in that nationality and bringing a food item representing that country; students will tour around that day to each class filling their passports for prizes.

S.A.D.D (Students Against Destructive Decisions) is bringing in M.A.D.D. Canada’s presentation “In the Blink of an Eye” which is a presentation about the consequences of driving impaired. Stettler GM is sponsoring this presentation for our student body from grades 9 to 12 in the gym on Tueday, March 21. The S.A.D.D. students will also be doing an awareness campaign that week. Thank you to Brenda Esquirol for sponsoring this program.

Child Development Assistant class has gone for their first observation at the Stettler Child Care Center and Start Right Playschool. They will continue going to these locations as well as Share Bear Playschool occasionally throughout the semester working towards their Child Development Assistant certification.
