High school students compete to decorate ‘most festive door’

As the Christmas season is fast approaching, we start to realize how quickly the end of the semester is coming

As the Christmas season is fast approaching, we start to realize how quickly the end of the semester is coming at William E. Hay Composite High School.

Diploma prep classes continue this week for Social and English 30 students who registered for them.

This week, the student leadership groups began preparing activities for Friday, Dec. 21, our last day of classes before the Christmas break.

The leadership groups will each prepare an activity that students can drop into as a “convention style” day.

Similarly, TA classes are busy competing in their annual “door-decorating competition,” for which class can decorate the most festive door.

The 2013 Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program is an opportunity for students graduating from a Canadian high school that have achieved an excellence in academic and extracurricular activities, and demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the environment, to earn one of 20 $5,000 scholarships toward their post-secondary education in any field.

Applications are due by Feb. 15, and are available at earthday.ca/scholarship.

Today, Dec. 12, there’s a bake sale for the Philip Hayden Foundation to provide support for Chinese orphans in need of medical assistance. It’s just one of the many social activism projects being planned and organized by Social Studies 10-1 students.

Other activism projects include “Down Syndrome Awareness,” presentations to the Stettler Middle School on the current conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gaming for Autism, and Hockey Bags for Kenya, just to name a few.

Students have completed the Tell Them From Me Survey and the results are soon to be released in the “Results Release” publication.

In that document, the administration highlights many of the comments that students write, and provides responses to them.

The Tell Them From Me Survey is just one of the many ways that William E. Hay works to have student voices heard in their education.

The Results Release will be available on the William E. Hay school website later this week.
