The word av­er­age is not a word that comes to mind when de­scrib­ing Glen­garry Dis­trict High School, at least not in the eyes of its first-year prin­ci­pal, Tr­ish Brown

“Although our stu­dent body is small, there is a wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties for stu­dents to par­tic­i­pate in,” she said. “The range of tal­ents and abil­i­ties of our stu­dents is amaz­ing” Some of the year’s high­lights in­clude: The an­nual high school mu­si­cal, Satur­day Night Fever, fea­tured mass par­tic­i­pa­tion from the stu­dents and a great turnout at all the show­ings. They even had more than 300 el­e­men­tary kids show up.

But Satur­day Night Fever wasn’t the only thing to hap­pen within the school’s performing arts com­mu­nity in 2015-16. Mu­sic Mon­days saw four dif­fer­ent schools par­tic­i­pate with mu­sic teacher Tif­fany DiRico very in­volved in or­ga­niz­ing the event.

Also, the school par­tic­i­pated in the dis­trict im­prov con­test, where they fin­ished sec­ond.

The an­nual St. Andrew’s day had great turnout with more than 300 kids at­tend­ing.

Also, the school teamed up with the Quirky Car­rot to cel­e­brate Jamie Oliver and his Food Rev­o­lu­tion, the stu­dents who won the com­pe­ti­tion had their sand­wich cho­sen as the sand­wich of the day at the restau­rant.
