Pictures of Houston Secondary students showing off their work at the HSS Art Fair, touring Europe and fund raising.

The HSS Arts Fair was very well attended with many students, family and friends enjoying visual displays of work from most curriculum areas. HSS extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took time to come out and support the students.

Grade 11 students Evan Kenzle and Clayton Standbridge show off their catapult at the HSS Arts Fair last Thursday. They built the catapult with Jill Bowes and Ravneet Minhas for a Physics 12 project, and it could launch a softball 55 metres. The boys thank Doug Kenzle for the use of tools and the donated supplies.

Fifteen students from Houston Secondary School travelled Europe March 16 to 29. They had a great time and want to thank their teacher Ms. Betty Lou Doyle for organizing it, Mr. Ted Beck and other chaperones and the Houston community for their support. Back: Shayla Craig, Ravneet Minhas, Delainey Larocque, Kyle Proctor, Shad Andersen, Taylor Johnson, Austin Warren, Jamie Beck, Katie Ball, Keely Williams. Front: Rebecca Ells, Evan Kenzle, Shanea Yarish, Kamalpreet Parhar and Trent Siemens.

Houston Secondary School rugby girls Ellie, Jessie, Shanell and Keely sell hamburgers outside the B.V. Credit Union to raise money for their rugby trips coming up. They are also selling hanging baskets and vegetable baskets soon, and anyone interested in supporting the team can contact Tanya Margerm at 250-845-3324. The girls are headed to Rugbyfest in Kamloops this coming weekend and Sevens Provincials April 26 and 27. After that they will host the fifteens rugby zones in Houston May 10 and 11.
