The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

Two stu­dents at Holy Redeemer School in Spa­niard’s Bay were win­ners in the pro­vin­cial seg­ment of the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion an­nual Poster, Poem and Es­say con­test.

Prior to en­ter­ing the pro­vin­cial com­pe­ti­tion, the stu­dents had par­tic­i­pated in re­gional con­test spon­sored by Branch 9 of the Le­gion as part of the Re­mem­brance Day ac­tiv­i­ties at the school.

“A win­ner from each cat­e­gory is se­lected from each grade level (K-9) and dis­played at the an­nual Re­mem­brance Day Din­ner held at the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion, Branch 9,” ex­plained Paul Shep­pard, lan­guage arts teacher at the Holy Redeemer.

“Dur­ing this din­ner, the first and sec­ond place es­say win­ners from Grade 9 (cen­tred around the theme of Re­mem­brance) read their winning es­says.”

The winning en­tries for poster (Pri­mary), poem and es­say (Ele­men­tary and In­ter­me­di­ate) are sent to Pro­vin­cial Com­mand of the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion to be judged on a pro­vin­cial ba­sis.

Grade 6 stu­dent Ka­t­rina Fill­more placed sec­ond in the pro­vin­cial Po­etry cat­e­gory and Kyleigh Mercer, Grade 9 placed first in the Es­say sec­tion.

“We are very pleased that two of our stu­dents are pro­vin­cial win­ners,” said Shep­pard. “Con­grat­u­la­tions to both Kyleigh and Ka­t­rina from the stu­dents and staff of Holy Redeemer.”
