Boys Alumni Basketball Tournament
The Boys Alumni Basketball Tournament will take place May 5 and 6. Click here for the schedule.
Google Canada is sponsoring a national contest inviting students from Grades Primary to Twelve to design the logo for the Google.ca homepage for a day. The winning “Doodle” will be featured on the Google homepage for 24 hours. As well, the winning student will receive a $10,000 university scholarship, a Google Chromebook, and a $10,000 technology award for their school.
At Google, we think about what's next. We are committed to investing in Canada's future, by building new technologies and investing in initiatives that give our youth a platform to voice their creativity.
We truly believe that the best way to invest in Canada's next 150 years is to invest in our youth. That’s why we’re launching Doodle 4 Google, a national contest inviting students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to redesign the logo for the Google.ca homepage for a day.*
This year, with Doodle 4 Google, we're asking kids to imagine what Canada's future will look like and explore the exciting possibilities and cultural changes that technology, science, and innovation will bring through art. In other words, we’re asking that this year’s doodles explain “What I see for Canada’s future is…”
One talented student’s winning artwork will appear on the Google.ca homepage. The winner will also receive a $10,000 university scholarship and a $10,000 technology award for their school.
There are also prizes for our finalists, including Google tech. The schools of the finalists will also win technology awards.
Go to g.co/d4gCanada for more information and the entry form. Now, let’s get doodling!

Nova Scotia School Insurance
As you may know the Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.
Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.
In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online, in an effort to take the eco-friendly route, reduce costs and staff time.
