On Wednesday, January 18, the girls Nighthawk Basketball team celebrated their first win since joining the Elk Island Catholic Schools basketball league last year.
In a fast-paced game, the Nighthawks took an early lead and kept it to the end resulting in a 28-16 victory over the Holy Spirit Heat B team. Congratulations Nighthawks!

This is a reminder that tomorrow is a professional development day. Students are not in session.
During the final week in November, Junior High students had the opportunity to do some research and prepare an engaging presentation on their passion area. For more about the junior high Investigations Week, and to view a video that captures the event, go to our Independent Studies and Investigations page.
We are excited to announce that the NHS Elementary Choir is now up and running. The choir’s first practice was held after school on January 17. Over thirty students from Grades 2-6 are participating in the choir.
The Elementary Choir will continue practicing weekly until later in the spring.
The Girls Nighthawk Basketball team had their first game of the season against the Holy Redeemer Crusaders.
The girls played hard and although they probably shot as much as the other team they couldn’t score as many hoops and therefore lost 44-20.
Good luck in your next game, and sink those shots!
On Friday, January 13, the Grade 5/6 Nighthawks mixed basketball team had a min-tournament at Holy Redeemer School in Ardrosson. The evening of basketball gave our grade 5/6 team an opportunity to play against other schools to help develop their basketball skills.
The games were 30 minutes long and no score was kept. Because player substitutions occurred every 3-4 minutes, all players had plenty of time on the court.
It was wonderful to watch our young athletes play with such heart, sportsmanship and pride. It was also exciting to finally watch these young players in real-game action. Based on our performance, our junior high teams can expect some wonderful talent coming up the ranks!
Most importantly, the players had a fun time playing a fun sport.
Thank you to Holy Redeemer School for hosting the min-tournament, and to the Elk Island Catholic Schools Sports Council for including us in these rewarding events.
