Elon Musk is Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2021. Is this a bad thing? Many of the world’s critics think so. The Guardian opens its piece on Musk with the following:
“Time magazine’s decision to make Tesla billionaire Elon Musk its person of the year for 2021 has been criticized because of his attitude to tax, opposition to unions and playing down the dangers of Covid.” – The Guardian “Naming Elon Musk person of the year is Time’s ‘worst choice ever’, say critics.”

Richview’s 2021 SAC Elections were executed in a fairly entertaining, yet disappointing series of blunders. In fact, Richview may have ended up without an SAC this year, if not for the *rumoured* actions of one electoral candidate… Thankfully, though, our school administration was eventually able to run the vote… by Google Form.

Throughout the month of May, the Asian Heritage Club has taken the time to have a meet every Friday and come up with ideas on how to represent the Asian community. When people think of Asia, most think of East Asia – China, Japan, Korea. This is mostly fine, but we sometimes forget that Asia is a large continent that includes South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Central Asia. The Asian Heritage Club does an amazing job at representing every Asian community.

On Friday, March 15th, Youth in Control hosted a Kahoot game night after school via Zoom.
Youth in Control is the host of the annual M.A.D.D. assembly, as well as a yearly attendee of the Sunnybrook party program. In past years, Youth in Control has held impaired goggle workshops that mimic the eyesight of someone who is under the influence, as well as fundraisers such as bake sales.
This year in place of the usual events, a Kahoot was held. Contestants were required to answer questions about mental health, substance abuse, and Covid-19. After each question, a member of Youth in Control explained the correct response, educating contestants.

Mentorship has always been a vague domain for me … kind of like something that’s always there, but not really something that I care about. Kind of like how my phone tells me to update and I’m like “Update? Yeah maybe later” and promptly forget about it. It’s there floating on the edge of my mind but I’ve never heeded it.

The performers on stage: beautiful, elegant and powerful. The audience: so loud with cheer and applause you could barely hear the music, let alone the MCs. This is the image that I remember the black history assembly by.
