It’s a “C-D” Day!

Welcome the following guest staff today: Janet MacDougall/Michael Brothers for Kristina McLane, Adam Clow for Kelly Pike, Dean Lackie for Anne MacKinnon, Krystal Feehan for Rod MacDonald (am), Tracy Schurman for Dawn Martell and Wanda Cheverie for Toby Murphy.

Happy Birthday to: Colby Stewart! We extend belated greetings to Anthony McGuigan who celebrated his birthday last Friday!

Congrats! The 15th annual PEI Senior High Honour Band was held on the weekend of November 28 to 30 at Colonel Gray High School. The band was directed by Mr. Mark Adam from Acadia University. The representatives from MRHS were Noah Perry (French Horn), Ryan Holland (Alto Saxophone), and Jacob McSweeney (Tuba). The weekend culminated with a public performance on Sunday afternoon in which the ensemble displayed a very mature stage presence coupled with superior performance ability. Bravo to Noah, Ryan, and Jacob for representing MRHS with such professionalism.
