The SJHS Cheerleading Team under Coaches Leanne Charlton, Michelle Oliver and Jacie Kennedy is having a banner season! This talented team started practices in November in preparation for Spring competition season. In addition to cheering football season and the Memorial Game, the team recently participated in the first two competitions of the year, placing second at Simonds on April 1 (out of 7 teams) and scoring a big win at Ecole Mathieu Martin on April 8 (also out of 7 teams).

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!!
Honorable mentions: Megan Fisher, Keiffer Sullivan, and Gregor Stewart & Mashroor Rahman.
