General News:

Westisle extends a special thank-you to Gwynne Dyer, a popular author, historian and journalist, who spoke to some of our students last Wednesday. His informative presentation covered current events and a look into the future. We appreciate the time he took to speak to our students.

Also last week, the Margaret Stewart Ellis residents visited Westisle. They joined Mrs. Perry's Phys. Ed. class where they participated with Westisle students in a variety of activities. This program was a great success last year, so Westisle and various senior homes in West Prince are once again participating in building a connection between seniors and youth.

Copies of last year's yearbook are available in the library for $25.

Guidance:

The West Prince Chamber of Commerce is searching for four student volunteers to help out with their Business Gala on Feb. 22 from 6-9 p.m. Students would help with registration, 50/50 draw, and door prizes. The hours can be counted towards bursary hours.

The IWK is offering a Future Health Research and Innovations Scholarship. The deadline for applications is March 1. Contact guidance with any questions.
