CLASS OF 2015

The Staff of ARHS is wishing our Class of 2015 a very special week ahead.  

GRADS DEFEAT TEACHERS/POLICE

June 17, 2015 -- The traditional GRAD BASKETBALL Competition was played today with the Grads taking down the Teachers/Police with a one basket lead.   The Grads put a scare into the Teachers/Police with their incredible team huddle.  There was fear in the eyes of the adults--not to mention their exposed shaking knees.   Yet in the end, after many red faces and lots of laughs, it was a great time for all. "It was kind of them to make us look so good," stated one enthusiastic staff member.  

HOME TRADES TECHNOLOGY 12 GETS CREATIVE

The HTT12 students and their teacher, Mr. K. Gould, decided it was important to do something with the leftover wood after building their shed.  The result--planter tables and chairs.  Below you can see the fun chair that was built.

ARHS RECEIVES DONATION FROM VALENTINE RUN

June 11, 2015 -- Drs. Rachna Minocha and Rick Mckenney have been great supporters of Amherst.  In 2014 they, along with their hard working organizing committee, decided to take things a step further by organizing an annual Valentine Run in an effort to support local running/health promotion throughout the year. 

In both 2014 and again in 2015, ARHS was awarded a $500 grant to help promote sports.  This money is awarded to youth who wish to be involved with sport but may be having some financial difficulty.  All ARHS youth who may have a financial need are encouraged to speak with your coach, the Athletic Director or an administrator in the office.  Never say never.  There is help available. 

ARHS thanks the Valentine Run Coordinating committee and all of the volunteers (ARHS youth and staff included) who helped make the run possible.  Your time, energy and talent has created something quite special in our community.  Thank you for thinking of us.   

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS RECEIVE THEIR CERTIFICATES

June10, 2015 -- 2014-2015 was another eventful year made special for many reasons; especially because another fantastic group of International students selected Amherst as their destination of choice for their academic year.  On Wednesday, participating students were awarded their NS Cerficates by Principal, Pamela Hoar, and their Faculty Advisor, Mr. Stephen Blum.  We are proud to have a welcoming school where all international students help to enrich our "global classrooms" while they are being enriched by our school, community and province.     

Thank you for making ARHS your home for the past year/semester.  While you were learning, we were learning.  Safe travels.  [Photos to come.]

CEP 10 PLAQUES ENHANCE SPORTS BANQUET

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 -- The ARHS Sports' Banquet had a special addition this year.  Our CEP 10 students with the support and expertise of their shop teacher, Mr. Fred Gould, made the plaques (see example below) which were given out to our talented athletes.  We applaud the CEP students for the great contribution they have made to a very special evening.

CONGRATULATIONS ATHLETES

PISA ASSESSMENTS WRITTEN

Thank you goes out to all students selected to write the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) study, an international  assessment done in cooperation with our Department of Education and Early Childhood Education.  For identified students, this required a day out of regular classes to complete and our students were very accommodating.  Thanks also goes out to Mrs. K. MacKay, Guidance Counsellor, for coordinating the assessment.  This took a fair bit of time to coordinate and Mrs. MacKay rose to the challenge.
