by Todd Robertson - Thursday, April 21, 2022

We would like Celebrate members of Mr. Benjamin's PE Leadership class for donating several "Easter Egg Baskets" of goodies to our neighboring elementary school, Prince Charles Elementary School. The gifts were personally delivered by a few leadership students; the gesture was well appreciated from the elementary school. As a required component for this class, students are to provide volunteer service hours around their school and community. Way to go Hounds!

Pom Poms for the WIN!!!

by Caroline Christie - Saturday, April 2, 2022

Once again all teams faced many changes in the way students could play and compete due to ever changing Covid restrictions and work disruptions. Unfortunately, our cheer team, despite hopes of having a more normal year, were denied the opportunity of live competition. All cheer teams across the province faced challenges of sick teammates and changing routines. Despite all these obstacles, our Lady Hounds strutted, flipped, and shimmied their way to their back-to-back banners in the filmed provincial finals this March. Thank you to our coaches, Leanne Charlton, Michelle Oliver, Kennedy Collins, Shelby Hughes and our tumbling coach, Gary Forbes.

Grade 12 Student Naser Alnaser: From EAL Student to EAL Mentor!

by Tori Roberts - Tuesday, March 22, 2022

Naser Alnaser is a grade 12 student at SJHS who is currently working as a peer mentor in an English as an Additional Language class. The most impressive part is that he was a student in that same class just three years ago!

Naser is originally from Syria. He fled with his parents and five siblings due to war back in 2013. His family became refugees in Jordan before finally arriving in Saint John in 2016 when Naser was only 11 years old. He spoke absolutely no English at the time.

When he arrived at SJHS in grade 9, Naser became a student in our EAL class. It was a great experience for him: "Everyday we were learning something new and improving our English. It was a diverse class that celebrated everyone, and I never felt different from anyone else."

It was a perfect send off for graduating players, Aidan Stackhouse, Alex Higgins, Justin Remillard, Kohen Alderman, Josh Cahill, Chad Alexander, Jesse Melanson and myself.

Despite covid restrictions, temporary shutdowns and an unconventional high school experience for players and students, Hounds hockey has seen growth, consistency and improvement to its program. This is in large part to the hard work and dedication of some amazing volunteers.
