On June 4, students from Ms. Cotnam's period 2 History class visited the Quinte Humane Society in Belleville. They walked dogs, played with cats and said hello to Stella the pig. The shelter is always looking for volunteers. Call 613-968-4673.
The Steering Committee of the Quinte Children's Water Festival has passed on a big 'Thank You' to students in THS' Outer Limits class. Here are e comments from some who attended:
“We thought everyone did a great job - from the student instructors to the adult instructors explaining their occupations. Everyone was knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming.”
“All were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There was a real attempt to engage the students and present the information interactively. Their presentations were well focussed and they spoke clearly. I also liked that the presentations were short but still informative. There were some new and challenging ideas for the students and several of the stations complimented each other.”
Students in our Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) Non-Profit program recently enjoyed an amazing trip to Toronto. On Day 1, they heard many memorable and emotional stories at the Make a Wish Foundation. This was followed by an educational visit to Centennial College. Day 2 was the most meaningful part of the trip. Students visited Scott's Mission, the largest homeless shelter in Toronto where they were quickly trained to prepare and serve food to approximately 200 homesless people. The experience was amazing! Students worked hard, had smiles on their faces, wished people well and gained valuable perspective about life. Finally, the group purchased items to distribute to other homeless people on the street. This was the best SHSM trip ever!
Trenton High students participated alongside our St. Paul, Marc Garneau, St. Peter and ENSS neighbours in support of Trenton Memorial Hospital. The Colour Run, while messy, proved to be a VERY popular funraiser with just over $11 000 being raised for our community hospital. Congratulations to all participants!
