AVHS honours soldiers, past and present, with special service
ances from the school band, student council speeches, and the participation of Sea Cadets, which all served to represent our thoughts of thankfulness in a marvellous way.
Also, members of student council represented our school at Remembrance Day ceremonies in Windsor, Brooklyn and Mount Uniacke. This day always unites us as one and reminds us of our gratefulness for the ones who have fallen. Lest we forget.
Report cards were issued on Nov. 19. Teachers and parents met to discuss students’ performances on Nov. 22 and 23.
The AV boys’ hockey team had a great victory in the 2018 Birthplace of Hockey High School Tournament. Teams from New Brunswick, Cape Breton and Halifax attended the tournament that AV hosted. The team had an ambitious desire to win. Step by step, our school team participated in five games, including the semi-final and final. As for the final game, AV went against Glace Bay and had a 4-1 win. The tournament MVP was Dan Lord. All players did their best and made us proud. Let’s support them in the future games and for more triumphs.
