Exam week has secondary students scrambling

PHSS students give an update on matters affecting students in Port Hardy.

Port Hardy is full of activity as the first semester of this school year comes to a close. With less than a week left in the semester, courses are finishing up and students are energetically preparing for the dreaded exam week at the end of January.

 

Despite the last-minute panic, teachers at the school are being very supportive. They encourage pupils to ask for help outside of class time and help students with any questions they have.

As the new semester begins soon, so does the new sports season at PHSS. The rugby team is starting up again despite the freezing weather.

 

Many students and faculty are ecstatic about the long-awaited startup of the NHL season. Plenty have been breathlessly anticipating the puck drop, commencing the hockey season. Following the hockey league remains popular at PHSS, with numerous people showing support for their favourite hockey teams during Jersey Day this month.

 

Who knew one staffer could have shirts for so many teams?

The Drama Club is now working on a spring production, full of exceptional actors, actresses and stage crew. It is sure to be entertaining to watch!

 

The school is also holding a Mardi Gras dance in February. The dance is already causing a buzz in the student population as students anticipate the excitement of mysterious and eccentric costumes, and sensational music.

The grade-on-grade competition continues with the grade 12s currently in the lead, having acquired the most points overall in the scavenger hunt, but the grade 11s are close on their heels.

 

PHSS was proud to sponsor the 4 Paws Rescue association and recently held a contest to name the mascot of 4 Paws Rescue, a female Pyrenean dog. The winner of the contest earns a semester’s worth of fresh cookies or a Cafe Guido’s gift card.

At spring break, a group of senior students is headed to Belize for the week. They have certainly earned the opportunity after all the fundraising they have accomplished. The week in Belize will be filled with sight-seeing, shopping, and exciting activities including snorkeling and zip lining.

This year’s Grad pictures are coming up in February. Grads are busily preparing for June celebrations in weekly Grad meetings. In only a short time June will be here and the class of 2013 will be graduating with all our best wishes.

With the end of a semester comes the chance to start fresh. It is a time to reflect on what has happened during the school year so far and on how to make things even better in the months ahead.

 

From PHSS, we wish you a bright day and happiness. And, of course, best of luck on your upcoming exams.
