IB Music Recital Shows a Diverse Range of Musical Talent

by Tracy Lutz - Monday, February 27, 2017

An intimate evening of music was had on stage in the Dennis R. Knibb auditorium Thursday, 23 February. Performance is a crucial component of the IB Music class; as part of their IB assessment, students are recorded performing in front of audiences, with those recordings then being sent to examiners for marking.

Teacher Trish Gallagher and her students presented a wonderful evening of music to display the diverse talents of the class: piano, violin, cello, percussion, guitar, flute and voice performances were all greeted warmly by the appreciative audience. Numbers ranged from Rachmaninoff to Taylor Swift to selections in French and German to a personal quartet composition created by one of the students. It was especially delightful to see students acting as accompanists for one another.

Congratulations go out to Ms. Gallagher and her talented students on a wonderful recital.

Rugby tryouts under way

by Jeff Warr - Saturday, February 25, 2017

SJHS's Boys Rugby Program has officially begun its winter indoor training and identification sessions. It's a very exciting time to become part of Hounds Rugby. SJHS's Senior boys team has won consecutive AAA provincial rugby banners and the JV team is the reigning AAA provincial champion. The recent success has created more hype and expected growth for the program. The game itself is growing in popularity. Its physical, competitive and high-speed nature draws new athletes to the sport. With students coming from a wide range of sport backgrounds, rugby brings the best out of each player and enables them to apply their athletic abilities to a new and unfamiliar game. SJHS boys rugby has benefitted immensely from its Junior Varsity program since its inception in 2013, attracting more grade 9 and 10 students to the game. An additional 2 years of experience and training results in a more complete player by grade 12. For this reason, we would love to see an influx of new grade 9 and 10 players come out this year. If interested, please come out to the upcoming training sessions and/or see Mr. Warr or Mr. Graham to discuss. Feb 26 - 8:30 am - 10:30 (SJHS gym) Mar 3 - 3:30 - 4:45 (SJHS gym) Mar 12 - 9:00 am - 11:00 (SJHS gym)

Girls Hockey team on Fire!!

by Kathleen Boyle - Wednesday, February 22, 2017

The Saint John High Schools girls’ hockey team kicked off their season on a high notes (in October) and they haven’t looked back since! With only having 2 lines for the majority of the season, these young ladies have shown the league what dedication and hard work can do. In 15 regular season games, they have a record of 12-2-1.

The girl’s success has come from them created a number of scoring opportunities during their gritty matches this season. They have earned their wins through aggressive fore checking, supported by a defensive core that has held the blue-line and limited their opponents to fewer scoring opportunities.
