Outdoor Pursuits on Frye Island

​Today my Outdoor Pursuits class and I worked on Frye Island in the Bay of Fundy. We boarded a boat at Back Bay, piloted by Cook Aquaculture, and headed to the deserted island.It was an amazing day. We saw much history, found wonderful treasures and wildlife, I was given gifts of dead animals to further adorn my desk (what every science teacher loves and appreciates) :) We equally helped Andrew, from the Nautre Trust and outward Bound Canada, to mark a trail on the island. I hope to instill a passion for the Bay of Fundy, to create a sense of pride in my students so that they take on a role, no matter how small, for local conservation and the small place we call home on this planet.

Student of the Week

Congratulations to Mark O’Connor who was selected as Simonds High School student of the week for the week of May 28th to June 1st, 2018.  Mark is truly an outstanding individual as he is hard working, self-disciplined, and conscientious.  He is the type of student who will strive to exceed expectations, which is evident in his receiving highest standing in numerous courses.  It is not only his stellar grades, which make him an excellent student, but the fact that he embodies school spirit to the fullest.  Mark is a proud Seabee, and it shows in his dedication and commitment to Student Council, sports, and drama.  Mark’s consummate work ethic and high standards will enable him to reach his goals as he embarks on a degree in engineering at UNBSJ in the fall.  Simonds Pride Continues with Mark O’Connor…
