William E Hay high school students off to Paris

By Justina Nibourg

Many of the French language students of William E. Hay High School in Stettler are excited that the school board has given preliminary approval for a trip to France. This trip is during the 2011 spring break but French 9, 10, 20, and 30 students are eligible.

The students will be spending most of their time in Paris, but there is an excursion to Vimy Ridge planned. Notes have been sent home with the French students this month. There will be an informational meeting on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. in room 127.

On Oct. 26, MADD (Mothers against Drunk Drivers) came to the school and gave a presentation about drinking and driving. We watched a video about how drinking and driving and how does not just affect those who have been in accident but how it affects those around us.

We had some very fascinating characters come to visit us on Oct. 29. Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story came and so did Thomas from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe also came. There were some amazing costumes for Halloween dress up day.

We would like to welcome Miss Huskinson who is joining us from the University of Alberta and will be staying with us until Christmas. She will be teaching with Mr. Humphrey’s and Miss Hagen’s classes in the social studies department.

Read again next week for more exciting events that are happening.
