SHSS Wins the District Math Competition!
Four SHSS teams represented SHSS at the district math competition in Rossland. All students had a great afternoon working together in teams to complete math problems for points. We are super stoked to announce that one of our teams had a great team effort and won the district competition. A HUGE congratulations goes out to Gemma van Doesburg, Andrew Voykin, Christina Maida-Cook and Caleb Carlson. Nice work by all!
Ely Overennay, from Stanley Humphries Secondary School, was the low individual in a field of 40 players at the East – West Kootenay Zone Provincial Qualifier. Ely navigated his way around the Christina Lake Golf Course in a very professional manner. He made 15 pars, one birdie and two bogies to post a one over par round of 73. This was Ely’s personal tournament best!
Ely has been Stanley Humphries top golfer all season, but unfortunately his very strong performance in the zone championship was not enough to help Stanley Humphries get to the provincials. J.L. Crowe, from Trail, was the top team and they will be travelling to Vernon June 1st – 3rd to play in the BC High School Sports AA Provincial Golf Championship.
Ely, however, will still have a busy few weeks. He will be trying to qualify for the BC Mens Amateur on May 30th and 31st and then he will play the BC Junior Qualifier on June 6th and 7th. If he gets through both those qualifiers it could be a busy summer for the young Stanley Humphries golfer.
SHSS Senior Marketing students, Hannah Bauman and Rebekah Liszt took home top honours winning the senior division with their virtual fridge marketing app, Use It or Lose It. Second place in the junior division went to Business Education 10 students Darrin McBee and Keegan Christianson for their motorbike studded tire service, Power Studs.
SHSS had one team in the senior division and three teams in the junior division. Congratulations to Kyle Hadikin, Ainsley Morgan, Andrea Smithies and Janneh Verigin-lee for their great work!
Chloe Sirges from our grade 9 French Immersion class placed first in her category at the provincial Canadian Parents for French speech arts competition held in Surrey on May 2nd. Her speech entitled “Le chat au chapeau n’est pas tout fou” which detailed the life and works of Dr. Seuss earned her a gold medal in the grade 9 Immersion category. We are very proud of Chloe’s work and of the great job she did representing our program, our school and our district!
