In 1914 when the world went to war for the first time, Canada threw itself heart and soul into the war effort. In 1917 the Canadian Corps was tasked with taking Vimy Ridge in Northern France and on April 9, 2017 commemorative events were held across Canada and on Vimy Ridge to remember this victory.
Of the 170 000 soldiers on the Ridge, Saint John High Alumni were strongly represented by two New Brunswick raised units, the 1st Canadian Heavy Siege Battery (now 3rd Field Artillery Regiment) who supported the advance of Canadian infantry regiments, like the 26th Battalion (now the Royal New Brunswick Regiment). Graduates like Major Cyrus Inches, Commander of the 1st Canadian Heavy Siege Battery, left Saint John in 1914 and would not see his summer home in Westfield again until 1919. Greyhounds witnessed the horrors of modern warfare for the first time. Mud, rain, poor tactics and an enormous learning curve resulted in heavy casualties for all sides of the war. On April 9th, 1917 radical tactical and logistical changes were put to the test by the Canadian Corps. These changes resulted in the successful taking of Vimy Ridge and were eventually used by the Allies to break through German lines in 1918 for the 100 Days Campaign.

When it first entered the public consciousness in 1938, nylon claimed a novelty no other product could match. Its predecessor, rayon, had been touted as “artificial silk,” a phrase that implied both economy and imitation.
Without touching organic chemistry, I will never have thought about making nylon by myself. Under Ms. Morrell’s supervision and instruction, my IB Chemistry class has been synthesized nylon to practice what we learned in the class. After pouring the mixture of sebacoyl chloride and hexane over the amine solution without mixing those two, the nylon was pulled out from the interface of those two solutions by using tweezers thus being rolled onto a paper towels cardboard for collection.

Saint John High School held their science fair on March 17. What a group of amazing young scientists! The judges were impressed with the scientific thought and innovation that went into these investigations. There were projects on filtration of water, extraction of DNA, stem cell research, floating soap, sun rotation, periwinkle shell depth, bath bombs, genetics, etc. Teachers and students who came to view the fair enjoyed listening to the students and viewing their poster boards.
Congrats to the winners: Ria Kunkulol, Chandler Doucette, Johan Dysart, Connor Savoie & Jacob Gomke, John Corscadden & Ethan Bustin and Allison Cooke & Caroline Hovey. We wish them luck as they move on to the Fundy Science Fair to be held on April 7 at UNBSJ. Go Greyhounds!!
