Debate Team Canada has advanced to the semi-finals, happening tomorrow. Today, they defeated Pakistan in Octofinals, and China in Quarterfinals, both unanimous decisions (5-0). They face South Africa tomorrow. South Africa is thus far undefeated in the tournament, and handed Canada its only defeat in the round-robin portion of the tournament. After the China debate, and before they knew the results, Aislin Flynn, Sacred Heart alumna and judge, posted this update on Facebook: "This is the best we've seen this lineup work together. A very, very strong case and exceptional rhetorical performance. If we go out now there was nothing more this intelligent group of kids could have done. They rock." They are in fine form; they CAN slay the dragon tomorrow. All prayers and well-wishes gratefully accepted!

Sacred Heart Students Alex Gillis and Aristides Milios are involved with the Hoist Halifax event happening this Saturday. Hoist is run by them and is in partnership with Volta. It is a monthly meet up for kids in grades 7-12 who are interested in design, business and technology. The meeting this month is the first in their App Design Series and they are trying to get as many students to attend as possible. The event will take place at the Maritime Centre (1505 Barrington St) from 12:30-3:30 this Saturday, September 19 on the 7th floor. Pizza and prizes will be provided! Hopefully together we will be able to influence more youth in the areas of design, tech and business.

Congratulations to Rebecca Chipman, Gr. 7 and James Gerard, Gr. 7 who entered their poems into the Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition last year. Their poems were amazing and each had the opportunity to read them during our Prize Day last year. They both received a Silver award. To put it in perspective, The Royal Commonwealth Society received more than 13,000 entries from over 600 schools in 49 Commonwealth countries and territories. Both the Senior and the Junior judging panels were impressed by the quality of the entries and in total over 3,000 participants won an award, Gold, Silver or Bronze. Quite an accomplishment for both of them!!

D'Arcy, alumna and former art teacher at Sacred Heart is giving a presentation tonight (Sept 9th) at the Halifax Central Library at 6:30pm The Centre for Art Tapes is thrilled to have supported D’Arcy Wilson as their Local Artist-In-Residence. The Local Artist-In-Residence program provides an opportunity for local media artists to experiment and develop new works involving audio, video, or new media. FREE Artist talk and screening of The Memorialist Using pseudo-documentary videos, gouache drawings and performances, crafted from research yet peppered with imagination, CFAT’s Local Artist-in-Residence, D’Arcy Wilson, resurrects the obscure historical fact that Halifax was once home to North America’s first zoo, formerly located beside the Armdale Rotary.
