It’s a busy time of year at Tantra­mar Re­gional High School.

It’s been a suc­cess­ful cou­ple of weeks at Tantra­mar Re­gional High School (TRHS).

The 16th an­nual Christ­mas Craft Fair took place Nov. 17. We want to thank all the ven­dors who braved the cold storm the evening prior and dug their way to TRHS early Satur­day morn­ing to set up. The Stu­dent Coun­cil thanks ev­ery­one for mak­ing the event a great suc­cess. Mark your cal­en­dar for next year’s Craft Sale: Nov. 16, 2019.

Our semi-an­nual Casino Night was held Nov. 28. More than 150 stu­dents at­tended to play black­jack, roulette, poker, and other casino games. The event was catered by the TRHS Culi­nary classes and Ms. Melanie Ball and the spread was fan­tas­tic, as al­ways. The SLAP team pro­vided stu­dents with a live view of the “Poker Room,” light­ing, and mu­sic for the event. The stu­dents won poker chips which al­lowed them to bid on items, auc­tion style, at the end of the evening. There were some amaz­ing prizes do­nated by lo­cal area busi­nesses, in­clud­ing gift cer­tifi­cates from Touch of Class, Dol­lar Store, Pat­ter­son’s, Blind For­est Books, Leela Yoga, Snack Shop, Marsh­lands Inn, Joeys and Na­pule, along with var­i­ous items from Jean Coutu, Knuck­les & Truf­fles, Guardian Cor­ner Store, Goya’s and Vogue Cin­ema.

It is one of the most favoured events of the year and we can­not thank our spon­sors, and par­ent/ teacher vol­un­teers enough! Alex Rhin­dress from TRHS Stu­dent Coun­cil de­serves all the praise for tak­ing the lead on or­ga­niz­ing this amaz­ing night. She did a won­der­ful job.

In ath­let­ics, the Ti­tans swim team had their first swim meet of the year and it was a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

The boys’ hockey team were busy on the week­end with their Carl Ward In­vi­ta­tional Tour­na­ment.

The girls’ var­sity team played Cle­ment Cormier Dec. 4, while the boys take to the ice on Dec. 7 at 8:15 p.m.

Both Ti­tans var­sity bas­ket­ball teams will be play­ing in the up­com­ing Tantra­mar In­vi­ta­tional Christ­mas Clas­sic tour­na­ment on the week­end. We hope to see you out sup­port­ing your Ti­tans.
