Richview’s Revised & Despised Cafeteria Policy

By the Voice Editorial Board

Since Ontario’s return to in-person learning one month ago and with the start of a new semester, Richview students have had to make a number of adjustments, most notably and controversially, regarding their lunchtime plans. Upon attempting to enter the cafeteria at the start of the 2nd semester, students were greeted by bouncer-esque staff explaining that per a COVID-era policy restricting cafeteria capacity, only 150 of Richview’s approximately 1100 attending students are now allowed access to the cafeteria. Richview’s cafeteria, in which students both purchase and eat food, is the school’s only dining environment, i.e. the only accessible location with actual tables and chairs.

Ask Angel – My Unfair Teacher

One of my teachers doesn’t like me and it’s affecting my grades. The teacher barely acknowledges me in class and is always in a bad mood when I try to speak/ask questions. My teacher will happily answer the same questions from a different student tho. I don’t know what to do and I think I deserve better marks for the work I am handing in, but I always get roughly the same grade no matter what. How do I get them to acknowledge my concerns without sounding like a brat?

Vaping is Not Cool

   Disclaimer – I’m going to remain anonymous to protect my well-being, especially since I’m not graduating any time soon. Also, despite this being an opinion piece, I don’t intend to slander anyone in particular, but rather use this opportunity to share some valuable information on this harmful, and potentially deadly practice. 

         “Vaping is not cool,” is written in bold, black letters on a colourful sign situated above the empty space separating the boys’ and girls’ washrooms on the first floor near the main entrance. Why am I starting off this piece with a heavy emphasis on this sign, do you ask? Well, dear reader, one of the most ironic parts of this school, that I’ve personally noticed, is having a sign that speaks nothing but the truth in front of washrooms filled with high schoolers who disappointingly choose to deny it. I’m not referring to everyone who uses the downstairs, and even upstairs washrooms, only the people who deliberately attempt to ruin their health in secret, as a result of peer pressure and the will to be “cool.”

How Where You Pee Exposes Your Inner Self

By Emma Padure

Honestly, I hate listening to people complain. I always end up zoning out, paying attention only to the subtle movements of their eyebrows whilst they move from one subject to the next, effectively rendering me comatose. Then, when they finish their complaint, they look at me expectantly, waiting for a grand declaration of my sympathy for their suffering.

A Complaint on the Richview Saint: It’s Time We Change our Mascot

By Sathya Siva

What do you think of when you hear the word saint? Do you think of high-school? A football team? How about a public school logo? Yeah, I didn’t think so. When I think of a saint, I think of a ‘holy person’ depicted in Christianity who is supposedly ‘close to God’. So is our school logo promoting Christianity?
