by Webstaff - Friday, July 3, 2015

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 up at the circle 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.

Boys and Girls Club and Saint John High School Collaboration

by Ms. Lutz - Tuesday, June 30, 2015

In the fall of 2014 the Boys and Girls Club of Saint John contacted Saint John High regarding a possible partnership in tutoring. They were looking for high school students to offer tutoring and mentoring to elementary school students from the area and SJHS was very eager to participate. Every Monday and Thursday of this school year the Boys and Girls Club bussed elementary school students to SJHS where they met with their mentors to work on homework, develop literacy and numeracy skills, play board games and enjoy the company of an older ‘buddy.’

It was a very successful project of which both institutions are very proud. On June 1 all mentors and participants enjoyed an end-of-the-year party to celebrate the first year of what promises to be a very worthwhile partnership. A huge thank you goes out to Tracy Stuart of the Boys and Girls Club of Saint John who oversaw the tutoring partnerships all year and who organized the party, complete with treats and certificates for everyone.

Grad Potluck - Gallery 3 of 3

by Webstaff - Tuesday, June 30, 2015

After the grads enjoyed some very yummy and plentiful food, they lined up to anxiously await the unveiling of their final yearbook as a SJHS student.

With yearbooks and pens in hand the signing marathon began. For the next couple of hours the cafeteria, and the halls were filled with laughter, and a few tears as the grads of 2015 left their sentiments for each other in their yearbooks.

We hope you have enjoyed the pictures from this very important event.

A big thank you to Ms. Wood , Ms. Wilton and Ms. Hartman for their year long support of the 2015 Grad class.

Grad Potluck - Gallery 1 of 3

by Webstaff - Monday, June 15, 2015

One of the highlights for the grad class is the "Grad Potluck". Held each June, graduates are excited to attend the potluck, which at that time, they are given their pre-ordered Red and Grey yearbook.

This year's yearbook, headed up by Editors, Sam Landry and Keeley Shea, was a wonderful production. It was also a first for the committee, who chose the colour white for the cover of the yearbook. Congratulations to all those who served on the yearbook committee and to Ms. Judith MacMillan for a job well done!!
