PHSS students take part in famine fundraiser

Port Hardy Secondary School students detail the happenings at the high school.

Easter break was a wonderful holiday, a chance for students to recuperate and rejuvenate!

Many students had an exciting weekend, filled with Easter egg hunts, family time, and rest and relaxation.

Still, it seems as though it all ended too soon. Before everyone knew it, it was back to the daily grind at school!

Nevertheless, the general atmosphere on the first day back was cheerful, if a little sleepy.

School is back in full swing, and the sports teams are practicing hard for their upcoming matches.

A recent rugby match saw PHSS beat North Island Secondary School 10 to 7.

Recently, course selection began with the introduction of new classes being offered for next year. PHSS will offer a new course, called Field Studies, where students can learn about local businesses, work experience, and job shadowing.

Another class being offered is Kwak’wala, focusing on the local area and the spoken language.

As well, the past month saw some students preparing to participate in the annual 30-Hour Famine organized by the student council and held last week.

The 30-Hour Famine is an event in which students raise money for charity and go without food for 30 hours in order to raise awareness of food shortage issues around the world.

It was a challenging experience, but ultimately a rewarding and enjoyable event.

Hats off to all those who participated!

Wai-Ching Sze-to, Alisha MacDonald and Alexandra Southgate are Grade 11 students at Port Hardy Secondary School.
