WILDCAT CORNER

On Friday night, William E. Hay Composite High School hosted our annual fall awards ceremony. A big thank-you to all of our presenters and sponsors for their donations.

About 150 students received awards, with $72,000 given out, including Alexander Rutherford scholarships. The awards included honours, career and technology studies, academic, fine arts, athletic and citizenship.

All T.A. classes will participate in a T.A. food drive competition. They will gather non-perishable food items and personal hygiene items, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and shampoo.

That will run through Oct. 28. The T.A. class that collects the most items will receive a pizza party.

Students of the month have been announced. One student is picked from each grade that best suits the month’s category. September’s category was Most Welcoming; in Grade 12, the winner was Kayla Boettger; in Grade 11, Mary O’Donnell; in Grade 10, Aaron Lee; and in Grade 9, Kieran Rost.

Congratulations, guys and girls. Keep up that welcoming spirit.

Jostens and local jewelry stores will be at the school Thursday and Friday to give Grade 12s an opportunity to purchase graduation rings. These rings may be personalized to show accomplishments and memories.

Parent order night will be Thursday from 3:30 to 6 p.m.

Health Discovery Day takes place once again this year at the Stettler hospital on Tuesday, Nov. 1. It’s an outstanding opportunity for our grades 10 to 12 students to learn about a wide variety of jobs in the healthcare field. Space is very limited!

Mrs. Shepherd’s Social Studies 20-1 class headed to the Stettler Museum to learn more about Stettler’s rich history, including the settlement of Blumenau, the Estonian community in Linda Hall, the development of Stettler, the Stettler soldiers who fought in the First World War and the Second World War, and the list goes on.

The students are now using Stettler’s history as a case study of the historical development of Canada as a nation.

Don’t forget, the Building Construction students are still accepting building requests. The first project for the seniors will be ice-fishing sheds.

The students are investigating what would be the best design, but if you’re so inclined, come down to the building shop at any time to discuss what would be suitable for you. Charge will be 20 per cent, plus materials.

As part of the High School Flexibility Enhancement Pilot Project, Oct. 17-20 is project week at William E. Hay. Project week runs on a modified timetable that allots large blocks of time for each class throughout the week. That enables teachers to plan projects and activities for their students that they would otherwise not be able to do because of time restrictions in the regular timetable.
