So when I heard about a mentorship program just for girls, (GEM- Girls E-Mentorship) , I was like “Uh, okay, cool”. My go-to response to life honestly.

By Flavia Allajbeu

We start the presentation with fingers stroking the keys of a piano with sorrow. Simultaneously, a gentle yet present voice illustrates the stories of victims that have suffered tremendously from the bad decisions of another. This is how the M.A.D.D assembly began on December 15th.

By Lauren Olszaniecki

As guests filed past the assorted raffle baskets, the harmonious sounds of the string octet echoed off the walls of the rapidly filling auditorium.

SAINTS WIN: A Friday Night Lights Recap

 

By Charlie Taaffe

On Friday, October 18th, I was lucky enough to witness my last FNL as a student at Richview Collegiate. I walked into Centennial Stadium and looked at the crowd full of students, past and present. I realised that even if these were two regular Canadian High school football teams, this meant a lot to the local community and Etobicoke as a whole.
