  • Haunted House

A hospital. Seemingly innocent at first, but there’s something evil beneath the surface.. Walk through spine-chilling corridors, travel through operation and inspection rooms, and be careful.. Because there’s something lurking in the dark. Come along to the annual haunted house produced by the juniors in the black box at this Sunday’s food fair! It will be an experience you will never forget. (Helena)

While the first meeting will discuss the favourite books of the attendees in general, all subsequent meetings will based around a specific genre, chosen by the attendees. We are creating this event primarily because of how busy everyone’s been over the last few months. We just thought it would be nice to have a time where we can just relax, and enjoy a nice book.

This is by no means a mandatory event. Yes, there will be snacks. And beanbags. We weren’t lying about that. So, if you wish to attend, then by all means just show up at 4 pm on Thursday.

  • Special Schedules Next Week (Repeat)

G10, G11, and G12 Students: Next week you will all be on special schedules as a result of seminar week for G12 and some special sessions for G10 and G11. We have done our best to make the week useful for all.
As an added bonus, we have moved the regularly scheduled HS lunch to the 12:35-1:15 slot, as it was last year so everyone will be able to eat a little earlier.

Please note, you may be in different classrooms than usual (even for registration). Here are the schedules for you to review:

Student Copy – G10 Student Copy – G11 Student Copy – G12

All students should consult with these schedules to determine where they should be and when. Your tutors will review these with you this week to make sure you know where you need to be and when you need to be there. (Mr. Redlich)
