The Hamilton Spectator - - OUR PULSE - BY KEVIN GEENEN, GRADE 12

In an in­creas­ingly dig­i­tal age, one may be sur­prised to learn that Car­di­nal New­man’s school news­pa­per, Car­di­nal News­man, was only just founded this school year.

As the founder and ed­i­tor-in-chief, I see the news­pa­per as a valu­able tool to give de­tails about school events. Al­though the school web­site can pro­vide more up-to-date in­for­ma­tion than our monthly news­pa­per, it is still im­por­tant.

Our news­pa­per is for cur­rent stu­dents and teach­ers as well as alumni and it cov­ers sto­ries that would oth­er­wise go un­no­ticed.

Al­though Car­di­nal New­man’s sports teams are of­ten rec­og­nized for their en­deav­ours both lo­cally and provin­cially, the gen­eral pub­lic may not re­al­ize that the school pro­motes ex­cel­lence at all lev­els.

New­man is home to a tal­ented dance squad, a con­cert band and jazz en­sem­ble, the CN Ex­plo­sion Glee Club, the CN Play­ers act­ing group, and the “Sla­mu­rai,” our very own slam po­etry team who is the de­fend­ing city cham­pion at the “Louder than a Bomb” slam po­etry com­pe­ti­tion. For the “News­pa­per Crew,” it is our goal to en­sure that all as­pects of the school are cov­ered thor­oughly. By open­ing ev­ery­one’s eyes to all that Car­di­nal New­man has to of­fer, we pro­mote the school and en­sure that stu­dents and staff re­ceive proper recog­ni­tion for their ded­i­ca­tion and hard work.

Thank you to Miss Ge­or­giades, our teacher ad­vi­sor, for mak­ing our vi­sion a re­al­ity!
