Happiness Is???

by Marylise Habiyambere - Monday, May 23, 2016

In honour of Mental Health Week (May 2nd to 8th), SJHS’s Club HOPE created a fun and interactive project on happiness. The group got students to write down on large Post-Its one thing that makes them happy, to be displayed in the cafeteria. We received a wide range of answers: from friends and family to being in the sun and water polo! This project allowed students to connect and engage themselves in an interesting way and at the same time help bring awareness around mental illness.

Grade 9 Student exceed provincial average at Math Competition

by Mr Graham - Monday, May 23, 2016

This year's Math 9 team was made up of 10 students from the English and French programs. The students had to qualify for a spot on the team by having an in-house competition.

The contest is a non-calculator, 1 hour in length multiple choice exam written across the province of NB at 4 locations. Mistakes are deducted from the overall score by 25% of an increasing value from part A, B or C. This year saw a total of 1200 students write from grades 7-9.

Our District had the #1 finisher for grade 9, a RNS student and SJHS was fortunate to have the 2nd place and 3rd place finishers, Albert Cho and Jimin Lee respectively for the ASD-S.

Team SJHS did a great job overall with a team average of 43% while the Province had a 23% success rate.

We are all proud of our Hounds!

SJHS Choirs Strike it 'Rich'!

by Trish Gallagher - Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Last week, the Saint John High School Choirs were undefeated in the NB Competitive Festival of Music. The concert choir, accompanied by grade 12 student Danny Han and directed by Trish Gallagher, performed 8 selections winning all Golds over RNS, KVHS and HVHS. The adjudicator continuously praised the choir for mastering and memorizing such challenging works with such "precision, artistry and musicality". The choir of 80 plus teens were "captivating" and "food for the soul". The SJHS Jazz, Madrigal, and Girls Select Choirs also won first place with Golds for their performances.

On Saturday evening, the Concert Choir accepted the honor of singing in the "Founders Night" final competition. Their performance of Healy Willan's, Hodie Christus Natus Est and Nyon, Nyon by Jake Runestad, won them the highest honor- The Glennie Award, $1000, for the Best Ensemble of the Festival. For the seventh year in a row, the choir won the Kiwanis Plaque ($300) for the highest ranking high school choir along with two other plaques ($400) for highest marks on a sacred piece and Canadian piece.

The Concert Choir and the Madrigal Choir have been selected to represent the festival at the provincials in June.

Performers include the SJHS String Ensemble directed by Ali Leonard, Conor Britt, Maria Mason, Kateryna Fylypchuk, Emily Johnston, Mary Louise Belyea, Brianna Savoie, Abby Gogan, Sophie Inkpen, Yeauen Kim, Dawoon Jung, Maya Comeau, Victoria Lincoln, and Grade 12 singer, Monet Comeau who won the title of "Intermediate Star of the Festival"!

SJHS Feminist Club's Feminine Hygiene Products Drive

by Marylise Habiyambere - Sunday, May 15, 2016

Throughout the month of April, Saint John High School’s Feminist Club organized a feminine hygiene products drive for the Coverdale Centre for Women. We were very pleased with the donations we received from the generous students at our school. Things like pads, tampons and soap were donated in great quantity. We hope that this drive helped bring attention to the lack of hygiene products being donated to the women in our community who need it the most. An additional intent of this event was to help reduce the stigma around periods and the products needed to aid during those times.

Atlantic Coast Conference Celebrating IB

by By Emily Drake - Wednesday, May 4, 2016

On the 15th of April, seven other students and I travelled to Bridgewater, Nova Scotia to be a part of the eighth annual ACC IB conference. While there, we received information about the different universities on the east coast and how being a part of IB can make your university experience better. We attended various workshops and seminars and listened to testimonies of previous IB students who told about how IB led them to successful careers. We also has the chance to communicate with other students in the IB program and to share our personal experiences.

One of the highlights of the trip for me was the university games that all students participated in on Friday night. Our skills were challenged uniquely as well as our ability to think and work as a team through fun games and challenges; I wish I could do it again. Overall, the conference was a really great experience and I learned a lot about the opportunities that IB opens up for its students and how IB is actually a really great program to be a part of.
