January 11, 2013

UMEI held its annual Christmas party on Wednesday December the nineteenth and it was a smashing success. The old auditorium was transformed into a winter wonderland thanks to the decorating committee. All the students looked dashing in their formal attire and the food provided by the students was simply scrumptious. After dinner the students took part in many festivities such as a photo session, followed by a performance by the grade nine class which featured many flattering pictures of teachers in their younger days. Afterwards the students played a rousing game of carol charades in which the grade twelves were …

Frankie & The Gingerbread Boy

Some picture highlights from the annual Grade 11 Play. This year the grade 11s performed Frankie & the Gingerbread Boy. The play is a tragedy that deals with high school bullying.  The playwright Bobby Keniston describes the play as  presenting “the tragedy that comes from intolerance to that which is different.” The grade 11s put on three great performances this weekend – Friday afternoon for 200 visiting elementary students, and open performances Friday and Saturday night for the public. It was a great turn out and a great show! Thank-you to everyone who worked hard to make the play a …

Barn Party

October 31, 2012

Last Wednesday we had our annual Barn Party planned by Student Parliament.  You could see the straw a flying as students “insulated” one another. Once  we arrived at the barn there were several fun activities. Games were played and good food was to be had. Mrs. Harnadek’s spooky story sent a chill of terror running down my spine. Afterwards the tractor took us to Thiessen’s haunted barn which was much scarier than we had expected, as could be seen from the fear in Francesco’s eyes and the hoarseness in our voices after. The leisurely hay ride back to school topped …
