It is Post Secondary Day this afternoon at Howe Sound Secondary. Welcome to all the colleges, universities and post secondary institutions that have come to do presentations for our senior students today. Simon Fraser University will be set up in the Library Learning Commons for the afternoon.
There are several new projects going on this week!
Don't forget! The book club will be meeting during REBEL today in the library.
The English department has organized a trip for senior students to go to the Whistler Writer's Festival Today. We were fortunate enough to be able to hear Joseph Boyden read from his upcoming novel and hear Katherena Vermette read from her prize winning poetry book "North End Love Songs". It was fascinating to hear about how they get their inspiration for writing and how important it is to incorporate where they are from in their poems and stories.
This is a reminder for all Work Experience Students and peer tutors that they will be meeting with Mrs. Schenk today in the library.
There are several meetings happening today in the library:
1. Student council question and answer session at lunch time
2. PAC meeting at 7:00pm
Today is the first day that the book club is meeting. We will be reading the book "I Am Malala" this month in celebration of Malala Yousafzai becoming the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Everyone is welcome! Meet on the couches in the library learning commons if you would like to join!
We would like to wish all the students and staff at Howe Sound Secondary a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend!
We hope you will have time to relax and curl up with a good book.
