William E Hay high school hosts Spirit Day

By Jenna Nibourg


My name Justina Nibourg and I am the other Wildcat reporter and also the student union secretary.

Wm. E. Hay would like to welcome to our school for the next three weeks, 12 students and their teacher, Mrs. Guenther from our twin school in Sanitz, Germany. Spending their time with us are Lenherd Knaak,Domentic Tamckmann, Hans Werner-Rose, Max Alwardt, Charlotte von Hollen, Manuela Muller, Carolin Hadlak, Alina Seysen, Julia Schade, Anton Losch, Franziska Trommer, and Lara Melzig. We hope that they will enjoy all the adventures and activities planned during their time here in Canada.

This past week, Social Studies 9 had a visit from Constable Yome. He talked to the Grade 9s about YCJA, showed them cool things, told entertaining stories, and he even showed them his taser. This was a great way to enhance what the Grade 9s are learning about. We love having Constable Yome around.

Spirit Day was on Thursday, Sept. 30 and was lots of fun. The September student of the month was given out to the student that was the most welcoming and the winners were Jordan McCallum, Austin Cherewko, Emily Chapman, and Dylan Benjamin. We started out with the introductions of the football, volleyball, and cross country teams. Then SADD, Students Against Drunk Driving, put on a rally race and the students of the month wore beer goggles while trying to avoid obstacles. Next we had the volleyball teams play a game against the teachers. This was followed by the introductions of the cast for Anne of Green Gables who participated in Fly on the Wall. Last but not least, student union held a hotdog eating contest with ten contestants. Mykayla Sorensen proved herself to be the grand champion demolishing her five hotdogs putting teacher representatives and fellow students to shame.

On Oct. 1, student union hosted a dance and there was a great turn out. Everything is full speed ahead at William E. Hay.

A reminder that student learning conferences and early intervention are on Oct. 7 from 4 to 9 p.m. at the school, please come out to speak to your students’ teachers and see how the school is looking.

Fall awards are on Oct. 8 from 7:30-9pm.

Tune in next week for Jorgen’s update.
