Last Wednesday students had the pleasure of watching a presentation from musician Robb Nash. He spoke about many of the issues that teens face and overcoming those issues. He made quite an impact on students inspiring them to talk with those who can help. Students are reminded that Wm. E. Hay has many people in place to assist with whatever you may be going through.

Last week, in sports, the JV boys Wildcats defeated the Rocky Mountain House Rebels 69-45. They also played a defensive game against the Thurber Raiders. The game ended 87-27 for the Raiders. Keep working hard boys.

Also, the JV girls pulled off a overtime win against Rocky Rebels 53-47 and played an intense game against Lindsay Thurber, fighting hard to the last minutes of the game. The final score was a 44 – 41 loss for the Wildcats.

For school clubs, we have exciting news. Be The Change is presenting a challenge to all the Town of Stettler called the #StettlerWellChallenge. Our goal is to raise $6250 for wells in third world countries and sanitation supplies. If you would like to donate, please stop by the high school office.

Last Friday, the Fine Arts Board hosted another coffee house that was very successful. We would like to remind everyone that the coffee houses are open to the public to come watch.

On Saturday, the Improv team travelled to Edmonton to compete at the Canadian Improv Games, and they did really well. Congratulations!

In other news, we are looking for one more student in Grade 10, 11 or 12 to attend Rotary Youth Leadership in Canmore in May. This three-day all expense paid program will teach you how to take control of your life and use this understanding to positively affect the lives of others. Speakers will touch on financial aspects of life, peer pressure, leadership, alcohol, drugs and teenage stress. Students get to stay at the Canmore Nordic Center. Parents are responsible to take their child to Canmore and pick them up. See Ms. Resch at the office for details.

If you are between the ages of 16-18, you are eligible to apply to the Junior Forest Ranger Program. Remember, this is not a summer camp. Be prepared for seven weeks of adventure and challenge. See Ms. McMillan for more information.

Students taking Bish’s driver training will earn three credits towards their diploma. The spring session is running Saturday March 14 and 21 and Sunday March 22. Please sign up at the office.

That’s all for this week!
