Quake shakes students

Alisha MacDonald, PHSS columnist, counts down to grad.

It’s been a very active few weeks here at PHSS. We had the pleasure of watching various presentations starting with one from ICBC on dangers of driving under the influence. Following the ICBC presentation, the high school held anti-bullying workshops. Students from Eagle View Elementary even came to take part in the various activities.

Our recent earthquake took many students by surprise. Even though the earthquake occurred later in the evening some students were still in the school building attending History Club and Rangers. Many remembered to follow the school’s earthquake protocol, they ducked and covered under desks for sixty seconds and then evacuated the building until they were certain no more shaking could be felt. It definitely made for an adventurous evening.

The countdown to grad has begun. It is hard to believe that graduation is only a month away. Grade twelve students are busily planning decorations for the gymnasium and hard working parent committees are working on catering, prizes and entertainment.

With all the excitement of the past month I believe students and teachers alike are hoping that the next couple of weeks are less eventful so we can catch up on work and prepare for the month of June!
