Also, thank you to our band student for all of their hard work and to all the attendee’s for coming and supporting the Marching Ghost’s.
Cameron won the Provincials Gold Medal in racketball for juniors 16 and under last weekend at the University of Calgary. He also won the Provincials Men’s B Division Gold Medal in the same event. This qualified him to be invited to Nationals in Kelowna, BC on April 20th. We wish him well in this competition. Cameron started playing racquetball when he was 4 years old. Well done Cameron!

Just a quick note to tell you about a free event we’re hosting for high school youth with a focus on cyberbullying.
The BullyStop Hackathon is a full day interactive event inviting high school students to help put an end to cyberbullying. Groups of youth will work alongside tech experts, educators and law enforcement to brainstorm and build solutions using computer code that can help eliminate cyberbullying. This is a great opportunity for youth to gain knowledge and insight into an important issue, fulfill volunteer hours, develop tech skills, contribute to an important cause, and to have some fun! The event is FREE and lunch will be provided by our sponsor, Panago. The first Hackathon was held in Vancouver and was a great success! The Calgary event will be held on: Saturday, April 9th at: Assembly Coworking Space – 119 14 Street Northwest, Calgary. Continue reading
