SJHS Student Representing Canada in Greek Chess Tournament

by Joe Boyd - Wednesday, July 15, 2015

SJHS student Sam Song will be representing Canada in an international youth chess tournament in Porto Carras, Greece this coming October. This is the culmination of a long series of tournament victories for Sam, beginning with the Saint John Ed Centre in March, the Provincial Championship in Tracadie-Sheila in April, and the Canadian Chess Challenge in Quebec City in May. Sam won every game he played in these tournaments. Most recently Sam came in a close second at the Canadian Youth Chess Challenge in Windsor, Ontario earlier this month, just a half-point behind the winner, chess prodigy Richard Wang - the 16th highest rated player in Canada. It was this last performance that qualified Sam to represent Canada in the World Youth Chess Championship in Greece. Each country may register only one player in each category (under 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 years old, open and girls): this victory puts Sam firmly among the elite young chess champions in Canada. Way to go Sam - we'll be rooting for you!

An annual favorite at the Proms is the Parent/Graduate dance. Graduates invite their mother, father or any other person who has had a significant influence in their lives to share the first dance of the evening. It is a wonderful and emotional time for the parents and graduates.

This 4th Gallery is the traditional daughter/father or significant person dance.

Please Enjoy!!!

The weather cooperated with us this year to help make the most anticipated Graduation event for the graduates, the Prom a huge success. On Monday, June 16th, graduates met at Loyalist Plaza near Market Square to prepare for the Grand March to the Marco Polo Cruise terminal. Both girls and boys looked STUNNING as they gathered in excitement. The girls looked beautiful in their dresses, while the boys were handsome in their suits and tuxes.

This first gallery is, of the graduates as they met down at Market Square.

Saint John High valedictorian earns McGill scholarship

by CLIVE MCKENZIE - Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Lauren Hogan took full advantage of all Saint John High School had to offer

Aiming for a Bachelor of Science from McGill University, Lauren Hogan has studied her way to graduate at the top of her class.

“I’m a big studier,” she said.“I usually start studying up to two weeks in advance. I use review sheets to summarize everything and as I rewrite everything out it helps me memorize the material. It’s important to condense everything so it’s easier to remember.”

It takes a huge amount of discipline and determination to study long hours and absorb the curriculum. In Hogan’s generation, every subject in high school and also university is centred on test taking. Once perfected, the skill can ensure success in every academic area of study.

Hogan earned a major entrance scholarship from McGill University in Montreal for her academic excellence.

“It will be a big change from Saint John,”she said in regards to her choice of post-secondary education. “I grew up on the west side of Saint John and I’ve lived here my whole life.”

Though Hogan is confident in all of her subject areas, biology is one subject that captured her interest.

I hope one day I’ll maybe pursue something in the medical field,”she said.

McGill offers one of the best science programs in Canada.

Apart from her studies, she also loves to play volleyball with the school team. She was captain of the Saint John High School volleyball team and she was chosen as most valuable player as well.

“Athletics are a way to release stress from school. It’s a big part of my life,” she said.

One of the assets that Hogan had throughout her schooling at Saint John High School is the fact that her mother teaches math at the school.

“At first, I thought it would be a little awkward, but now it doesn’t bother me. I kind of like having her there,”she said.

All throughout her youth Hogan remembers learning a lot about math and other subjects from her mother.

She found that it was important to take a variety of subjects and embrace the large size of the school. Saint John High School is able to offer many more courses than some of the other high schools in New Brunswick. Hogan took full advantage of all the opportunities.

“I took economics, accounting and law as well. The school offers a lot of specialty courses that give you real life skills,”she said.

After being so highly involved in the school, Hogan will look back at her time at Saint John High School as both challenging and positive.
