SHHS Students Capture "Charter Challenge"
Charter Challenge

The Charter Challenge is a simulated appeal for high school students, created to teach them about the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, organized by the ...Ontario Justice Education Network.

Law classes from across Canada are invited to participate in the challenge. Sacred Heart High School Walkerton sent law students Kayla Hendricks, Emily Dales and Eric Smith to Osgoode Hall in Toronto for the final round of the Charter Challenge on May 20th. They were accompanied by law teacher, Mr. Jamie Smith.

In the final round, teams presented their arguments to three Ontario Court of Appeal judges to determine who is really the top law school. This year, Sacred Heart High School emerged victorious. Hendriks, Dales, and Smith argued to keep a hypothetical child predator behind bars. Their opposition was Cawthra Park High School, a private high school.

Smith comments that, “Being able to take part in realistic situations like this enhances our learning experience of the law and was a very fun experience.” Emily Dales found that, “It was one of the most exciting things I have ever done in my life!” and Kayla Hendricks commented, “I never knew how well I would react under such intense pressure”.

When asked why he enrolls students in the Charter Challenge, teacher Mr. Smith responded, “I have found over many years of teaching that moot court/trials are one of the best ways for students to learn. We at Sacred Heart are not afraid to try new and interesting things to promote student learning and participation.”

The School's principal, Glenn Miller, would like to congratulate the group, stating “Winning the charter challenge is a great accomplishment for Mr. Smith and all of the students involved. We believe the law program at Sacred Heart High School is one of the best in the province.” Needless to say, Sacred Heart is looking forward to defending their title at next year’s challenge

Skills Canada 2015

On May 4-6 three of Sacred Hearts finest attended the Ontario round of Skills Canada. The day started early with a departure from the school at 5:30 am. Students were in the competition for up to 8 hours. This was not your typical school day. Jordan Schnurr competed in the cabinet making challenge producing a wood table. Justin Billington competed in the computerized numerical control to design a part and program a CNC machine. Matt Vansickle competed in precision machining to make a part using an engine lathe and milling machine to tolerances of less than a couple of hairs. They all preformed amazing making great products.

The next morning we went to the awards and all were excited and nervous to hear the results. Matt Vansickle led the competitors from Sacred Heart with an outstanding bronze medal. No small feat for competing against the best of secondary schools province wide. All were better for the experience as we look forward to next year’s challenges and the opportunity to represent Sacred Heart.

The first round at skills was a huge success for Sacred Heart, with several podium positions. The group all performed well up in Owen Sound on March 27.

Each round gets more competitive and after the qualifiers we have 3 competitors heading to the Ontario round.

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. 

Crusader Productions at Sacred Heart High School in Walkerton has been walking in the footsteps of local Canadian history in preparation for their upcoming spring production of Innocence Lost: A Play about Steven Truscott, by Beverly Cooper.

This fast paced drama follows the true story of Steven Truscott, a 14 year old boy from Clinton, Ontario, who was wrongly accused and convicted of murdering and raping 12 year-old Lynne Harper. Told through the perspective of a fictional schoolgirl, Sarah, the play explores the real opinions and divisions regarding the case that rocked Canada, and particularly Huron County in 1959. The action follows Steven's fight for freedom from the time of his arrest and trial until his acquittal in 2007…a gripping, raw and thought provoking show that is sure to leave audiences astounded. Recently, our actors took their pursuit of authenticity to a new level when they visited key locations depicted in the play in the Clinton and Goderich area.
Innocence Lost
Highlights of the day included Dyllan Mooser, the actor playing Steven Truscott, being able to sit in the jail cell Truscott inhabited and the prisoner’s box in the courtroom where the 14 year old had heard his death sentence proclaimed; a moving experience for the young actor. Likewise, Kyle Vaughan, who plays the judge that condemned Truscott to death, said that “standing at the judge’s bench and being able to look down into the prisoner’s box made the whole scene vividly real”. For Steven Travale, a Grade 11 student at ‘The Heart’, the most impactful moment of the trip was visiting the woods where Lynne was discovered. “I was overwhelmed by the thought that a young girl, so young and innocent, could have experienced such a tragic death. It also brought a whole new depth to the play for me with the realization that we have to bring the dual injustice to light in a powerful and moving manner”. Director, Veronica Davidson, summed up the value of the trip by stating, that “our students have grown in both their compassion and understanding of the social justice issues this play exposes”. Of particular note is that actual footage, shot in the various locations of Goderich, Clinton and the former RCAF base, will be used as part of the projected scenery for the play adding additional realism.

Justin Billington competed in the computerized numerical control to design a part and program a CNC machine. Matt Vansickle competed in precision machining to make a part using an engine lathe and milling machine to tolerances of less than a couple of hairs. They all preformed amazing making great products.

The next morning we went to the awards and all were excited and nervous to hear the results. Matt Vansickle led the competitors from Sacred Heart with an outstanding bronze medal. No small feat for competing against the best of secondary schools province wide. All were better for the experience as we look forward to next year’s challenges and the opportunity to represent Sacred Heart.

Muskoka Woods

On Tuesday, April 21st, 43 SHHS students, accompanied by 11 Sacred Heart Staff members, embarked on a trip to Muskoka Woods Resort in Rosseau, Ontario for the second year in a row. We were later joined by approximately 100 students from a number of our feeder elementary schools for three days of activities, adventure and making connections. Some of our Sacred Heart Students assisted Muskoka Woods’ staff in running a variety of activities such as Zip Lining, Big Swinging and Rock Climbing. Others were responsible for a group of elementary students, supervising in their cabins at night and leading them between stations, meals and nightly large group activities. Each morning was met with enthusiasm by our students and the last night of the trip concluded with a large group dance party, a Rock-Paper-Scissors Tournament, a team cheer competition and a campfire sing-a-long. While this trip allowed our students many leadership opportunities, staff also observed wonderful connections being made between staff, secondary and elementary students alike. It is our hope that the transition into high school will be more comfortable and welcoming for those incoming grade 8’s as a result of this excursion. Staff from Sacred Heart was extremely impressed with the level of leadership, maturity and responsibility that our students undertook while away over the 4 days. We would especially like to thank Mrs. Remers and Mr. Miller for their excellent planning and coordination that made this such a success.

Staff and students from SHHS will be heading off to Muskoka Woods from April 21st. –24th. With over 1,000 acres of property, 2,800 feet of shoreline on beautiful Lake Rosseau, world-class buildings and sports complexes, Muskoka Woods is one of the most respected premier residential camps in North America today. They will facilitating workshops and activities with our feeder schools. Enjoy the experience!!!

Water Filter Project

SHHS students recently raised $1000.00 for materials to purchase 10 Water Filters for the South Sudan African Safe Water Bio filter Project. The water filters last up to 30 years and are constructed locally and with locally available materials. Local water from rivers and lakes are used. One water filter can supply a small community with safe filtered water.

Thanks to all for participating in this very successful campaign that we ran during Lent. Many homerooms were involved by organizing creative fundraisers for this great cause. Some of the ways that the homeroom collected their targeted goal of 100$ was through Easter egg hunts, jersey/hat day, pie in the face contest, breakfast in bed/pancake day, bake sales and many more.

We are trying to support Safe Water by each home room aiming to raise $100 to help villages / families build their own water purification system that uses available resources, no electricity, is sustainable and gives water independence!

McGlynn Donation

Bernie McGlynn Lumber Ltd delivered a new General CNC router to Sacred Heart in early March. The donation was a prize from last year’s Mike McGlynn Memorial school competition. Sacred Heart’s Perry Mount (recently retired), challenged his classes to come up with an appropriate project to enter as a donation to the memorial. The class decided on a desk design and spent the next few months trying to perfect both the design and manufacture of the table. It was a great project that highlighted the skills the students can achieve through teamwork. The table won first place and was awarded the generous donation of the CNC in appreciation.


Mike McGlynn, a former student at the Heart, will not be forgotten and that association helped motivate the students taking part in the challenge. Sacred Heart plans to submit a project for the auction at the event again this year scheduled for August. This year’s challenge will begin in the next few weeks and will include parts made from this new piece of machinery.


The catch phrase “Stay Golden” describes Mike and his memory.

Crusader Productions Presents…
The 24th Annual Cabaret

Cabaret 2014

Sacred Heart High School will be presenting its 24th annual cabaret on December 2nd, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium. This year’s cabaret entitled Heart of Gold is set in a small parish community in the fictional town of Appleberry during the Great Depression. Desperate to find funding for the annual Christmas basket fund, the local church council decides to hold a Concert showcasing local talent. The plot thickens when two hucksters arrive in town and decide to crash the concert in the search of hidden treasure. Add into the mix a ghost legend, an orphan and an eccentric church deacon, just to name a few, and one has the ingredients for a night of hilarity. As per our tradition of excellence, this year’s Cabaret features the many diverse talents at “The Heart”, including singers, dancers and instrumentalists who will be performing a wide variety of different talent acts threaded between an original script. Thus, we invite all people, young and young of heart, to attend this year’s show – the perfect way to launch the Christmas season. See you on Dec. 2nd.

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?

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?
