High school students up for the Challenge

This week, all current science students are showing off their work in William E. Hay Composite High School’s first science fair.

This week, all current science students are showing off their work in William E. Hay Composite High School’s first science fair.

The Grade 9 students present on Tuesday, the Grade 10s will do so today, and the grades 11 and 12 students will make their presentations Nov. 21.

Grade 12 students are nervous, yet confident, in their upcoming portfolio presentations, which run from Nov. 26 through Nov. 28.

As it’s anti-bullying week in Stettler, William E. Hay launched the week with an anti-bullying presentation for all grades 11 and 12 students. The presentation taught students to be aware of bullying.

On the same topic, there will be a Challenge Day for grades 9 and 10 students on Nov. 28 and 29. Challenge Day is “a life-changing day” where students are asked to put your trust in others, and the end result is beneficial.

It allows students to drop the waterline and shows that everyone goes through the same struggles in high school.

Anyone interested in being a facilitator for Challenge Day is asked to contact Myranda Shepherd at mshepherd@clearview.ab.ca or 403-742-3466.

The Stettler Rotary Club is offering a one-year abroad opportunity. Every year, the Stettler club sponsors one student to participate in a one-year exchange. For those interested, the deadline for applications is today.

Report cards will be handed out to all students in TA on Friday of this week. Parent-teacher interviews are scheduled for Nov. 21 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the high school gym.
