Skills Ontario - Midland Results  2017

The second round of skills for the welders was in Midland this past weekend. The competitors from Near North (Huntsville to Guelph and Forest to Lindsay) were all bidding for a place in the top three to advance to the Ontario round May 1-3. The level of skill was ramped up as all the competitors had to qualify at earlier regional rounds. Sacred Heart had three welders who qualified from Owen Sound regional skills qualifier. Christian Glass, Nick Kieswetter and Jake Spitzig were all in the shop last week honing their skills. Former skill competitors, Brett Waetcher and Craig Klein came back to pass on some tips and tricks for our three qualifiers to the event. The part had several challenging welds including overhead and several multiple pass welds using various welding techniques. All three made huge improvements in the last few weeks and any one of them could qualify. As per the rules however no more than one student per board and only if they place in the top three at the competition. So first you have to be in the top three and then beat all your teammates. When the weld smoke cleared in Midland, Jake Spitzig was sitting in second and will be representing Sacred Heart High School at the Ontario round. Congratulations to all the welders this year on a job well done and good luck to Jake as he continues to prepare for the Ontario round.

Skills Canada – Owen Sound Competition 2017

Skills Canada is a competition that showcases the skills in the trades for secondary and post-secondary divisions. Students are placed head to head with students from other districts and locals across the country to show both their knowledge and hands on skills in a multitude of disciplines. On Friday last week 9 students went up to Georgian College in Owen Sound for the first qualifier of the Skills Canada Competition.  Sacred Heart sent students in three disciplines this year to this first round. In Small engines Cole Black and Tanner Meyer had to diagnose and repair several errors in electrical, fuel and mechanical areas. In Precision machining Keaton Rich, Everett Grubb and Kyle had to use produce parts to specifications on the lathe and the milling machine. In welding Nick Kieswetter, Christian Glass, Jake Spitzig and Elijah Warner had to fabricate a complicated part using blueprint reading skills and stick and mig multi-positional welding techniques.

 All of the competitors did their bests and showcased the awesome programs within the walls of SHHS.

The results were outstanding and several of the team achieving top three finishes. Keaton Rich and Everett Grubb came first and second in precision machining and Jake Spitzig achieve a 3rd in Welding. With hot young guns Elijah Warner and Kyle Hammel in grades 9 and 10 impressing the judges Sacred Heart will have a strong team for years to come.

Our next round, this Saturday in Barrie, will consist of the 3 qualifying welders in attendance. Jake Spitzig, Nick Kieswetter and Christian Glass will touch up their skills this week and be ready for round 2.

Keaton Rich has qualified for the provincial competition on May 2nd

Congrats to all the skills competitors!

SKILLS CANADA COMPETITION
Skills Canada 2016

This has been an extraordinary year for those students who participated in the Skills Canada competitions.  From the preliminary challenges through to the Ontario finals the team put in tremendous effort.  The effort this year was put into overdrive with a few weeks preceding the Ontario round of Skills Canada.  Learning from the previous competitions, Keaton Rich worked on speed as well as ideas to improve accuracy in precision machining.  Craig Klein spent lunches, evenings and extra days practicing various forms of welding.  He had welding mentors from previous years helping with different techniques and has benefited by the pay it forward system.  The CNC router competition had a challenge of no previous history.  Dalton Goetz, who took on the CNC router challenge, put in a huge effort to not only learn the art of designing in a CAD package but also programming and operating the CNC router.  Dalton spent many late nights running the CNC router and adjusting programs to suit his vision.  All those who competed captured the essence of competing in Skills.  They not only became much more knowledgeable in their respected classes they seen the results from their efforts.  At the Ontario round they all certainly did their personal best. Craig’s welds were impressive and challenged the top welders in the province.  Dalton’s plaque was very elaborate and utilized many programming techniques.  Keaton Rich skills in the precision machining had a very difficult milling and lathe project with tolerances less than the human hair.  Keaton led the way with a silver medal in precision machining and will be back next year aiming for another podium finish.SHHS thanks Mr. McCormick for all of your mentoring and extra effort spent with these students, as well as Mrs. Cowe and Ms. Liefl.

#breakthesilencebgh ... Mental Health Awareness Week


ABCs of Mental Health

Hello Everyone! 

In addition to all the great events planned for Mental Health Awareness Week /Month, we are excited to announce a special initiative by Bruce Power.  

Announcing the #breakthesilencebgh campaign!  Bruce Power has planned a wide reaching campaign designed to #breakthesilence around mental health issues.  This campaign will include a Monday morning press conference and breakfast at their Visitor’s Centre as well as a week full of other events including a health fair, guest speakers and information commercials that will be played throughout the plant.  For more details about their campaign, please visit http://www.breakthesilencebgh.com/ 

This is a very exciting opportunity for CMHA Grey Bruce as the campaign also has a fundraising component.  For each post of the #Breakthesilencebgh tag shared this week (May2-7), Bruce Power will donate $1 to a local mental health charity up to $80,000.  It’s like their OWN Bell Let’s Talk Day! 

This coming week we ask for your help to #GetLoud for mental health! 

·                  Wear GREEN to recognize your support for mental health awareness.  

·                  Take pictures with your own words of support and share in social media along with the tags:  #GetLoud #BreaktheSilencebgh #MHW2016 #EndtheStigma #MentalHealth #ivegotyourback911 #youarenotalone.  Don’t forget to tag your own workplaces and organizations!  

·                  Attend any of the great events planned over the next month to meet others, learn more and expand your own story. 

·                  Continue to help us break down stigma by spreading the word that mental health is 5 in 5!  We all have mental health!  We all deserve good mental health.  And with the rights supports, recovery is possible!   

For more information about any of these events or initiatives, please contact April Robinson at arobinson@cmhagb.org.

 Milk Bags  

Milk Bags Wanted
for Social Justice Project

Mr. Turcotte’s grade 12 religion class at Sacred Heart High School has decided to construct milk bag mats to help people around the world. Many people are not as fortunate as us and do not have beds to sleep in at night; they have to sleep on the ground. Milk bags are used because they are washable, they don't retain moisture and they are very durable. ~The milk bag mats give these people something to sleep on and provide some comfort. Not only do these bags help people globally but they also reduce the amount of plastic we are dumping into the environment. It takes approximately 25 years for milk bags to decompose. In addition to this plastic garbage in the ocean kills about 1 million sea creatures annually. It takes about 500 milk bags to create 1 mat. This is why we need your help. We would like to ask you to save your milk bags and send to SHHS. We hope to make as many mats as we can so your help is greatly appreciated.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mario Turcotte at 519-881-1900 or mario_turcotte@bgcdsb.org.

We appreciate your support and contributions to help us with this project.

Sincerely,
Mr Turcotte's grade 12 religion class

Innocence Lost:

A Play about Steven Truscott

Innocence Lost

Sacred Heart High School’s Crusader Productions been digging deep into character in preparation for their upcoming spring production Innocence Lost: A Play about Steven Truscottby Beverly Cooper. Innocence Lost, directed by teacher, Veronica Davidson, involves the artistic endeavours and talents of dedicated staff, students, and volunteers at “The Heart”. 

This fast paced historical drama follows the true story of Steven Truscott, a 14 year old boy from Clinton, Ontario who was wrongly accused and convicted of murdering 12 year-old Lynne Harper. The play is told through the perspective of Sarah, a fictional schoolgirl, and it is through her eyes that we see the real opinions and divisions about the case that rocked Canada, and particularly Huron County in 1959. The play follows Steven's fight for freedom from the time of his arrest and trial until his acquittal in 2007 and delves into the impact that a traumatic event has on a small community. A gripping and thought provoking show that is sure to leave audiences astounded. 


Relay For Life 2015

This year's Relay will take place on Friday May 29th and as happened two years ago at our last event, each student team will need a staff member to oversee the team the day of Relay.  The entire 12 hour event will run from 9 am to 9 pm.  Our goal this year is $30 000.  Last Relay our goal was $20 000 and we surprised that by over $7 000 so we would like to shoot even higher this year!

Emma Borho and Abby Slosser-McLean are our Event Chairs this year and already a lot of hard work has been put into creating sub-committees, organizing tasks, and attending Relay U in London before the March Break.  Any questions/concerns can be direct to Ms. Schuett, Emma or Abby.  If you are in contact with any survivors who would participate in our event, or anyone wanting to volunteer the day of, please have them contact Ms. Schuett at 519-881-1900 for information.

Thanks again for your support in this very important cause.

New York City Trip 2014

NY City Trip 2014
On Sunday, October 19th, 2014, 45 students and 4 teachers from Sacred Heart High School departed on a 5 day journey. I was one of those students, bubbling with excitement during the 12 hour drive. Our initial reason for going on this trip was to experience the many forms of art. New York City gave us all types of art and more.
The artists saw pieces, the dancers saw dance, the actors saw theatre, and the singers heard song. However, during this excursion, we experienced more than just the basics of artistry. The entirety of New York City was art in Itself. Not just the architecture, but every life that inhabited the city was another part of the masterpiece.
At the crack of dawn, (6 a.m.) we left the school. As long as the ride felt, we eventually did arrive in the city, and we were all shaking with excitement - and maybe we were a little cold in the cool night air, but it was mostly  excitement.
Five days may not seem like a lot of time to get the full New York experience. However, I believe that we got a good one, even in that amount of time. Each day unfolded something new and amazing. Sometimes it was the headline events, like shopping in Times square, going to see The Phantom of the Opera, touring the streets with every corner a different culture, a musical theatre workshop filled with songs and giggles, the top of the Rockefeller Center, walking the Brooklyn Bridge, touring Central Park, seeing Lady Liberty, and so much more. But, I found that we often had an appreciation for the little things. Like the way we bounced jokes off one another in our spare time, and the way the  skyline went on for what seemed like forever. You could see the appreciation in our smiles when we walked through Central Park on a beautiful sunny day, enjoying the leaves falling around us. As much as we enjoyed these fine details, it still felt like there was so much more to love in the concrete jungle. Southern Ontario seems like a very small place when you are rubbing shoulders with somebody at all times when walking. It’s almost impossible to see the same face twice, when at home you can see the same person 4 times in a day. It was a very new experience for most of us, and I can vouch for the fact that everyone enjoyed the trip. Of course, we made sure to keep a religious aspect to the trip,
touring through different churches and Cathedrals. Somewhere so large that circus animals as tall as giraffes are able to be blessed there. I suppose there was something for everyone in New York City. There was so much to be seen and Experienced, and what makes it better is that we got to do it with some of our closest friends (and our coolest teachers of course).
So, in conclusion, New York City was a trip that everyone enjoyed, and no one will forget. I can definitely say it was one of the best trips of my life, and I would go back any time.
Round two next year, anyone?

Lest We Forget
