If you have ever been to downtown Halifax to government house or Citadel hill then you have viewed work done by a group of 600 exiled Jamaican Maroons who came to Nova Scotia in 1796, settling in Preston Township. They helped build Government House, worked on new fortifications at the Halifax Citadel and served in the militia.

The Health Action Team is looking for your help.  They have created a short survey for all students to fill out to gather some information on students’ health and well-being.  The mandate of the Health Action Team is to work for all students to promote a healthy school environment.   Information gathered from the survey will help them find out what is working well for our students and what areas need support and what the Health Action Team can focus on to make our school the best it can be for all.

The survey is anonymous and voluntary and we would appreciate all students taking two minutes to fill out our survey.   The link is on the school website under students.   Thanks in advance from the Health Action Team.

All GSA members will meet today at lunch in the youth health center

Today at lunch the Politics Club will be meeting in Room C124. Aris Lavranos, an Emergency Room Doctor and Health Care policy expert, will be speaking
