Students Win $6000 with WorkplaceNB Video

by SJHS WorkSafe NB team - Monday, May 22, 2017

In November of 2016, we (Hooriya Sher, Jayatee Ray, Nihla Hussain and Sarah Kim) were chosen as the team to represent SJHS at the WorkSafeNB Youth Leadership Forum. We were amongst multiple other teams from other schools and we received the chance to perform leadership activities, listen to inspiring speakers and, most importantly, learn about workplace health and safety. The forum was followed by a 4-month project/competition in which our task was to advocate workplace health and safety to youth and our team did so in multiple ways. We presented in front of the grade 8 students at EMNS and two YMCA

Annual Food Drive

by Maggie Oliver - Friday, May 19, 2017

Throughout the week of May 7th to May 12th Saint John High School students took part in our annual food drive. The food drive began with a community food drive on May 7th when students went out into their neighbourhoods and collected various donations from all over Saint John. Our food drive continued in school as students were asked to bring in items to their A block classes. Ms. Lewell's grade 10 social studies class brought in the most food, while lots of classes also brought in many generous donations. This drive was headed by all of the hard working service clubs in our school including Me to We, Club Hope and Key Club, along with the SRC. All efforts contributed to a very successful week of collecting with close to 50 boxes of canned goods, pastas, baking mixes (just to name a few) as well as a couple boxes of books being donated. All food from the drive will be split between the North End and South End food banks while the books will be donated to Romero House. Thank you to all students, staff, parents and friends of Saint John High School who donated, your thoughtfulness and help with this initiative is greatly appreciated.

Today was the beginning

by Webstaff - Thursday, May 18, 2017

During weeks of rain this spring we managed to find "A glorious day" to capture the feelings of our 2017 grads as they posed for what will become the first of many photo opportunites between May and June! Ms. Desmond worked her magic from her ladder with the class, and once again she managed to find quality which has proven time and time again to produce beautiful results.With the help of the police, the street was closed to traffic so friends and family could gather on the street and watch the graduates have their final front step photo taken as a class.

This is the first of many formal get-togethers for the 2017 class, and one that certainly reminds them of the brief time remaining before leaving this part of their lives forever. Good Luck to all of our "Class of 2017".

This is the first photo gallery from this event. Come back soon.

We would like to congratulate the 2017-2018 Student Representative Council executive on being elected on Wednesday May 3rd, 2017. There was a week-long campaign at Saint John High School with numerous great races.

Next year's executive will be made up of the following students:

President - Benjamin Lohoar, Vice President - Connor Doiron, Secretary - Madison Bell, Treasurer - Siyum Mohiuddin, Grade 10 Vice President - Noah Easton, Grade 11 Vice President - Abigail Shiels

Finally, a Grade 9 Vice President will be elected in the fall of 2017 once the new students join the Saint John High School student body.

The student council at Saint John High School holds two meetings per week to plan and organize large special events such as the Haunted House and the Cabaret and is responsible for events such as the Grade 9 Orientation Day and Open House. Other roles of the council include the preparation of budgets to appropriately allocate funds, and on a broader note, assuring that the voices of all students are heard and listened to. The 2017-2018 council has a busy year with many responsibilities to look forward to. Serving on the student council executive is a difficult job at times, but is very rewarding.
