Stormy Howard here with the up to date news at Seaway!
Last week at Seaway was spirit week! We had exciting games and activities. Monday started assassin that went on all week. We had some very sneaky people! “I was ambushed by two girls! I was running around the school trying to hide,” said Michael Butler. Thursday was really fun too. It was hick day and Seaway students dressed up in their finest redneck wear!
These past few weeks have been busy with sports.
Cross country had their first meet in Port Hope at the annual Trinity Harrier Meet. Brynn Gilmour came in third, Sophia Currier placed 24th, Lauryn Henry finished 73rd and Kendra Buter finished 115. Great work ladies! The next tournament is in Mooney’s Bay on September 27th – Good luck to all in Ottawa.
Boys volleyball also had the first pre-season game. Ms. Last would like to thank the boys who played last Thursday. They not only played some impressive volleyball but also showed some awesome Seaway spirit! Their next tournament is October 3rd at Rothwell-Osnabruck
Brody Casselman and Greg Bolton will be featured in an upcoming Cornwall Standard Freeholder article. Brodey is in the Agriculture High Skills Major at Seaway! He is doing a dual credit with Kemptville College–year one Dairy Herdsperson. Greg is in the special edition featuring future leaders from a number of area high schools. Greg worked for the Canadian Military last summer and volunteers at Seaway and at St. John Ambulance
This coming Friday, Seaway is having a sport day! We have golf, kayak/canoeing, soccer, cycling, swing dance, swimming, badminton, tennis and bowling. Each student gets to pick two activities (except cycling, that’s running all day).
That morning we are also taking our Terry Fox walk, after the pep rally. We are selling paper feet to support cancer research. Cancer is a disease that affects everyone, so make sure to bring some spare change and decorate your paper feet in honour of those who have met with the disease.
Seaway is also taking part in the Williamsburg Harvest Festival parade. We will have a school float with the theme of “Barn building”. The parade is on September 29 from 11:30 to 1 p.m. Community hours are also available for this activity. Contact Mrs. Gilmour if you would like to participate.
We have been very busy here at Seaway. It’s hard to believe that our first month is coming to an end and Thanksgiving is around the corner.
It feels like just yesterday we were shy, nervous grade 9’s, but now we’re in the swing of things and ready to succeed.
