Senior Boys Hockey Team Interview

High School Girls Experience Tough Loss

The girls took on the challenge of playing the MVHS AAA girls over the weekend. Sadly, they were shutout by the rival team.

They put their best effort forward as they played a team that was much more high caliber than them.

It was, however, a great effort and the fans gave them a huge round of applause as the Golden Eagles skated off the ice.

Grade 9 Music Class Participates in CBC's National Music Challenge

The grade 9 music class at Blackville School participated in CBC's Canadian Music Class Challenge, performing their version of "Stay," a pop song by Alessia Cara.

"We think it went pretty good," said grade 9 student Emma Hallihan "It took up about three months all together and we believe we did a decent job."

"It went pretty good," agreed Camden Curtis.

Their performance is featured on the CBC Music Class YouTube channel and website. The contest ran from August 28 and ended November 27. The Top Tens in each of the seven categories will be announced this Tuesday and the winners will be announced on December 18.

According to the CBC Music website, the three goals of the contest are for kids to learn Canadian music in the classroom; draw attention to the exceptional work music teachers are doing with children across the country; and reinforce the importance of music in a well-rounded education.

Watch the video below of the Blackville School grade 9 music class performance of "Stay."
