This project is a study of the role of the working class in the building of Canada. Through the technology of interactive projection, students met and chatted with working class Islanders of 1867.

COMMUNITY WELLNESS UPDATE

Thank you to Stephen and Dawn Clow and family for cutting out the wooden Santas and to Patricia McKenna for leading us in the crafts that were made at the December Community Wellness event. Also, Kim Bailey, our school's counselling consultant shared background information on stress and anxiety with a few tips on how to manage.

Our next Community Wellness event is ‪on Thursday, Jan. 18, at 7 p.m. We will have students and staff sharing strategies they use to manage anxiety and talk about exam stress. Then we will play board games – a great stress reliever. Feel free to bring some board games to play.

The Community Wellness events are promoting positive health and providing an opportunity for parents, students, and staff to socialize. Everyone is welcome to invite a friend or family member and come out for a fun evening.

KICKBOXING

KRHS is going to be offering a kickboxing program for all youth interested. The goal of this program is not only to introduce the students to the sport of kickboxing, but also show them the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. In order for the program to run, a minimum of 15 students are required. Sign up in the office.
