Tony Melendez Wows THS!

Tony MelendezTony Melendez had THS moving on a Friday afternoon.  This motivational speaker and musician brought his message of hope to us.  Born without arms as a result of his mother taking thalidomide while pregnant with him, he learned to play the guitar.  His life changed dramatically when, in 1987, he played for Pope John Paul II who charged him with 'bringing hope to all the people'.  Tony has since been spreading his message.  It was an inspirational performance and we will #neverbethesame.

Is Your Student Going To Be Away? Now You Can Text for Attendance

Parents and Guardians - now you can text the school to let us know if your student is going to be late or absent.  The number is 613-777-6022 and is checked regularly throughout the school day.  A verification process is in place to ensure the accuracy of the text.  We hope that this new option makes it easier for you to communicate with us!

Students Learn About College Life

College VisitsTHS students recently had several opportunities to meet with college representatives and get the information they need to make decisions about post-secondary education.  Students visited Sir Sandfor Fleming, Loyalist and St. Lawrence Colleges to:

     - learn about all kinds of careers and programs

     - Learn about pathways between college and university

     - Get information about how and when to apply

     - Ask questions about campus life, housing and student services

     - Get financial advice on how to pay for college

This was a great chance to gather information about the colleges and programs all in one place.  For additional information, students are advisded to visit www.ontariocolleges.ca.
