Reflection on Student Leadership Conference

  Cassidy Coughlan (Spirit Leader), Chloe Donovan (President)
and Emma Sturgeon (Secretary) in Jasper, Alberta on the crest of
the Whistler Mountains after riding 2270 meters up on the Skytram.
The three students attended the Canadian Leadership Conference
in Edmonton, Alberta in September. 
I've had the fortunate honour of getting the chance to attend the Canadian Student Leadership Conference in Edmonton, Alberta this September, and let me tell you it was truly an eye opening and life changing experience.

I met so many new people and I saw some of the most miraculous sights I have ever seen, such as the rocky mountains 2270 meters in the air and also the township of Jasper, one of the most comforting and welcoming places I have been. 

These are only two of the amazing things I got the chance to see in Alberta, but there were so many more that I hope you get to see yourself because only seeing the sight for yourself would do the justice.

Creating Ripple Effects at Blackville School

Environmental Science Students
Patrick Donovan and Cody Maillet
Many students are likely familiar with the excessively large water bottles that used to stand in our hallways. These were used to collect bottles and other recyclable deposits. This is similar to the project the students in Mr. Hallihan’s Environmental Science class is undertaking.

Students must collect a certain sum of "eco-points" in the class. These are awarded for contributing something meaningful to the environment. To collect their class points, some students have decided to help clean up the community of Blackville.

This is meaningful for many reasons, as it is not only a way to ensure lots of "eco-points," but also improve the appearance of our community and clean up the environment. The money earned from the bottles and cans found in the ditches will also contribute to other Environmental Science class projects.

Walkathon Efforts Celebrated with Prizes and Pies

Last Friday, two lucky students were given the rare chance to sweeten the appearance of Blackville School's Principal and Vice Principal.

Grade 7 student Stephen Brophy and Grade 3 Ellie Jardine were drawn to be the fortuitous holders of a pan filled with whipped cream. This fluffy weapon was launched into the awaiting faces of Mrs. Moody and Mr. Buggie. 

The humorous event was held in celebration of the efforts of those who raised money for a recent fundraising Walkathon.

Grade 2 student Hannah Hallihan raised the most money, and second place was a tie between kindergarten student Cameron Innes and grade 4 student Keenan Underhill.

Over $5500.00 was raised for Student Council initiatives. To see more photos from this event, click here.

Viewpoint: Nutrition Policy


Students share their thoughts on changes to the nutrition policy (Healthier School Food Environment) which applies stronger guidelines on what foods are permitted for breakfast programs, special school events and fundraisers. 

Please Note: Since the policy went into effect, the government has indicated there will be a transition period, and the policy will not affect fundraisers and special school events.
