The grade 6 classes visited
the Flight Museum at 14
Wing Greenwood on the
morning of March 23. The
visit coincides with the
start to the students’ unit
on Flight in Space. The trip
is always well received by
the students and they
showed a great deal of interest in the exhibits.
Thanks to those parents
who acted as chaperones.
This year the trip had a very interesting
event. As the class proceeded into the
museum, Jordan Hayward-6Z, became
the 7000th student visitor to the museum. Jordan was presented with a ball
cap and water bottle to mark the occasion.

The snowshoe challenge is an annual event
held at the old ski hill on Junction Road to
promote girl’s fitness. Each year the event is
hosted by Lawrencetown Education Centre
staff and students. Participants must hike
the course on snowshoes approximately 4.5
kilometres long over steep terrain. MRHS,
LEC, BRHS, AWEC and WKDHS were invited
to participate this year.
This year there was not enough snow, so the
group hiked the distance using alpine poles
borrowed from the Town of Middleton.
Mandy Armstrong-Singer, Mia Fraser, Annika
Tibbutt and teacher, Karen Bower, completed the course this year on March 9. All participants received a toque and were treated
to a complimentary meal afterwards. Great
work, girls!
Grade 9 students who participated in the We Day Change fundraiser collected $365.00! Thank you to
the approximate 40 students who helped out. The students involved are now deciding which sustainable income project to support and in which developing country. Options: to support a clean water project or to purchase goats. Every $50 provides a goat to a woman in a needy country, helping her support her family. Great job, Grade 9 We Day participants!
The grade 6 classes will soon be starting to take orders for the 2015-16 recipe book. Each student has created and made an outstanding recipe that he/
she shared with the class in December during the food sharing days to celebrate culture from around the world. The grade 6 classes would like to
share all these wonderful recipes with the surrounding community. The recipe books are $7.00 each. Watch for us!!
Senior Girls Basketball—The senior girls basketball team won their fourth consecutive Provincial

the squad took control in the fourth quarter and never looked back. In their semi-final game with
Kings-Edgehill, the Monarchs were down by three with 13 seconds left, but hit four foul shots in that
span for a 62-61 victory. The team began the tournament with a 76-57 win over Springhill. Amazing
job, girls!
Senior Boys Basketball: The senior boys basketball team had a very successful season with an overall
