Hay will be hosting the Educational Liason Association of Alberta post secondary event on Friday, Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. All students will attend the event that will take place at the Stettler Community Hall. Parents are welcome to attend. Over 30 post secondary institutions will be in attendance.

The Fine Arts Board will be hosting their first Coffee House – a celebration of the fine arts showcasing improve, singing, dancing, paintings and the many other talents of our Fine Arts students at Wm. E. Hay. The Coffee House is open to the public and will take place on Friday, Oct. 23 at 2:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. Doors are open to the public.

Wm. E. Hay hosted the CWAJHAA cross-country running meet in Big Valley on Thursday, Oct. 15. Over 800 runners attended from as far west as Rocky Mountain House and as far east as Coronation. The conditions were very challenging as they ran on a snowy, slippery trail. Our athletic board served great hamburgers and kept everyone fed and watered. A big thank you to all of our CARA schools that helped out.

This week we would like to highlight Ms. Stayura’s Teacher Advisory class. Ms. Stayura’s class has been working on building relationships between students, preparing for Operation Christmas Child and also creating a list of recommendations of activities for our students’ union.

Last week, the class enjoyed a cake brought in by one of the classmates. Students are busy working on portfolios – especially the Grade 12 students who are presenting their portfolios to a panel of community members during the week of Nov. 16-20.

Looking for an experience of a lifetime? Our Stettler Rotary Branch will be sending one Wm. E. Hay student on a 10-month exchange to one of the many countries that Rotary operates in.

Students are encouraged to see Mrs. Shepherd for more information and to pick up an application.

That’s all for Wildcat News this week, we will be back next week with more updates from Wm. E. Hay.
