SECONDARY ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Did you know that 14 thousand Canadian soldiers participated in the Allied D-Day invasion of Normandy against the Nazis in June 1944?  Many of these young men were the same age as our grade 12 students at Aldershot. Previous students who have visited France with the school have found their visit to Juno beach to be very moving.  Don’t miss out on this amazing experience! Join the Aldershot trip to France in March 2019. The trip is open to all grade 9 to 12 students. If you register before June 21, you will receive a discount of $435.   If you have any questions, see Mr. Stuart in room 239.

Congratulations to...

The boys baseball team, who  improved to 7 wins, 0 losses and stand alone in 1st place in Tier 2.  They defeated Kings Christian yesterday 9 to 8, in an exciting bottom of the 7th win.  Good pitching supplied by Jack Thorpe, Connor Stapleford, and Nick Schofield. Terrific hitting with 3 hits apiece by Leishman, Pallotini, and Nick Schofield.  Nick also made an amazing diving catch in centre field, as well as supplying the game winning hit a double to win the game. Great work boys on a fantastic game.
