Grade 12 student pulls up his socks to jump into business

by NATHAN DELONG - Saturday, November 25, 2017

This article is courtesy of Telegraph Journal

Graham Wallace's young entrepreneurial journey began with a random thought.

The Grade 12 student at Saint John High School said he got an idea out of nowhere one night to build his own sports equipment company and produce an innovative hockey sock.

Wallace is now working to secure a patent for his product called Quickfit, a sock that won't require hockey tape to secure while providing players with a more comfortable fit on the inside.

"It's amazing. I never thought this would be possible," Wallace said at the Anglophone South School District Pitch-fest event at Millidgeville North School in Saint John.

International Night: A Trip Around the World in Our Own Gym

by Jayatee Ray - Tuesday, November 21, 2017

This past Thursday, Saint John High School celebrated its vast multicultural student body, and unique culture by hosting yet another successful International Night. Preparation began for this event from September and was wonderfully executed by the Saint John High School Special Events committee (Brianna Savoie & Allie Scott) as well as other helping students, such as Mrs. Cameron's world issues class who helped make poster boards of all the different nationalities found in our school.

The night began with cultural music playing in the background as comminute members, students, and parents filled the gym. Immediately they were presented with booths presenting cultural wear and aromas of the different foods these cultures had to offer. From Germany to China to Somalia, all cultures were presented to the public - a small window into what the culture had to offer. It was a bit after when performances began, and everyone got to enjoy live music and dancing from all around the globe.

International night was a night where everyone celebrated one another. We celebrated our different cuisines, our different languages, out different attrite, and with that, we found a common ground of acceptance and love - in our very own gym.

John Westhaver Tells his Story

by Submitted Article - Sunday, November 19, 2017

Many of you will start driving pretty soon. And while driving brings freedom and fun, it is also a huge responsibility. Did you know that new drivers are twice as likely to be involved in a crash within their first two years of driving? Even if it is a minor crash, it can have physical, emotional and financial consequences. We want you to know about the importance of making smart driving choices. We were lucky to have John Westhaver here to share his story
and message of Road Safety with us.

For the next three weeks John will be traveling through the maritimes on the Zero Fatalities Tour. This is a tour he created last year, as he is on a personal mission to end the number of fatal vehicle crashes in Canada and the devastation it causes to the surviving families. John has won two awards for the work he does with schools and communities. In 2012, he received the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal and this Spring he was awarded the Coast Mental Health - Courage to Come Back Award.

Theory of Knowledge Class Takes in Wapikoni

by Tracy Lutz - Sunday, November 19, 2017

Sometimes the stars align.

Theory of Knowledge, a mandatory class for the IB Diploma Programme, explores the central questions "What do we know?" and "How do we know it?" That exploration takes us through many areas of knowledge, among them the arts and indigenous knowledge systems. When it was discovered that Wapikoni, the mobile cinema showing short films made by Indigenous peoples, had a stop at the Saint John Arts Centre, its relevance to our study couldn't be denied.

And, fortunately, the timing was perfect! Typically, the class meets every Wednesday night, but because everyone wished to attend the annual Memorial Game being held Wednesday the 15th, for this week only the TOK class was moved to Tuesday - the one night Wapikoni was in Saint John.

Sometimes the stars align.
