Senior Girls Basketball

This Tuesday, on November 25th, Point Grey Secondary's Senior Girls basketball team had their first game against Gladstone Secondary. Unfortinately, the team lost two lead players a few minutes into the game due to a few too many fouls! However,the game kept the audience on the edge of their seats with a small difference in points for more than half of the game before Gladstone took the lead in the third period. Despite Point Grey's loss, the team played very well with only 2 practices so far this season! Good luck to this year's team and thank you to everyone who came out to support the first game of the season!

Point Grey Senior Band presented an outstanding performance at Magee Secondary on Tuesday, November 18th. This year, 96 Grade 10-12 students were involved. Brent Taylor and Stephen Fleming's senior class performed the “Brook Green Suite” and amazed the audience. PG wasn't the only VSB School showcasing their talented students. Lord Byng also performed the “October” and surprised everyone. Overall, the 2014 November District Music Festival was highly successful. Thank you to all students and instructors for all the effort and preparation! The Concert Band will be returning to Point Grey in the winter for a much-anticipated performance.

Strathcona Trip

Last week, you may have noticed the grade 9 and 10 mini students absent from classes. This is because they were at Strathcona provincial park camping. This was quite a change from the normal studying and other nerdy activities of the minis. They did learn some things on the trip though, like map reading. And in true mini fashion, they managed to work school subjects into the most unrelated topics. There were multiple different out trips, including hiking, canoeing, and kayaking trips. Most people also got to try out high ropes and zip lining. Apart from the mosquitoes, it was an all around great trip.

TACT!

Tact was a school play running on Wednesday and Thursday of this past week. A mix of the students hard work and Mr Enns and Ms Correia's devotion helped create this wonderful play, highlighting the incredibly talented actors and actresses of Point Grey Secondary School. Starring Kathy Booth as Hank and Noah Bayless as the "bunny", Tact took it's audience on a tour of Point Grey and it's "tactless students". Thank you so much to all the parents, teachers and students that came out to support our play!
