AWEC track and field athletes made us proud at provincials in Sydney Cape Breton June 1-2.  Brennan Clark rallied 13th place in a tough junior boys 800m.  Emma Gennette and Emily Olsen both placed 9th in the intermediate girls triple jump and Senior girls shot put respectively.  Our medal winners this year were Griffin Batt (Bronze in senior boys high jump as well as a 7th place finish in hurdles) and Hunter Morrison (bronze in junior boys discus).  Congratulations to all five athletes as well as alternates Sam Cooper, Ally Longmire, and Owen Charlton.  All track members are reminded to return singlets to the athletic director.


Hunter Morrison turned in an outstanding performance at track and field provincials on the weekend. He earned a bronze medal in Junior Boys' discus. Hunter is pictured here taking a warm-up throw to prepare for the cold and wet conditions. He is also shown on the provincial podium receiving his bronze medal. Great job representing AWEC, Hunter!

10 02 students enjoyed an insightful tour of the Halifax Stanfield International Airport today. Thanks to Trans County Busing for transporting us at 7:30 am.

The tour provided students with opportunities to understand the business and expectations of the airport. Sheldon MacIntosh, past AWEC grad who works in Boarder Patrol presented lots of behind the scenes work and we also had a chance to watch the trainer/security officer and his security dog, Fozz sniff out objects to prove he is excellent at his job. What an incredible tour!

As part of our Career Development curriculum Option & Opportunities students were in meetings with their co-op mentors. So many wonderful ways to experience industries that can open up more conversations around our table in 02 and in Co-op class in planning for student career pathing. Congratulations for achieving your 100 hours.

Chantal Gravelle AWEC Past Grad presented to 10 02 and shared her post grad experiences as a university student. Many highlights were discussed, as well as the need to prepare well for post secondary decision-making.



















Regional Track and Field at Bridgetown today.  Owen Charlton finished 4th in the 100m and 2nd in shot put and long jump.  He gets to compete in all 3 events at districts next week in Wolfville!

On Thursday May 17th Mr. Russell's Social Studies 8 class toured the Annapolis Royal Volunteer Fire Department. The class is learning about the different forms of government and the influences the different levels of government plays in their own community. A HUGE thank-you to Fire Chief Malcolm Francis for taking time out of his schedule to give us the tour and even allow a couple students to play firefighter for the day!   

Integrated eight students competed in the 34th annual Face aux questions at Central Kings on May 14th. They represented AWEC against various schools. They worked hard and team #1 won three out of their four games and team #2 won two out of their three games. 

2nd Annual IWK Dance Marathon is well underway!

Thank you to all the event planners, Glow Events, Dance Express, SUBWAY, DRHS, BCHS, 02 Enterprise, Annapolis RBC, Rachael Robinson (Face Painting), 02 Games, Independent Grocer, Bishop Farms,  and so many more...  AWEC and our communities are very proud to be supporting this incredible hospital (IWK).

Congratulations to the AWEC Envirothon Team on their strong performance at the NB Envirothon, and thanks to their coach, Katie McLean.  Team members who competed are Joe Cooper, Ashleigh Everett, Jessica Mugreave, Alex Hancock and Maddy Conyers.

Friday, May 4th from 5:15 pm - 9:30 pm welcomed 28 youth to AWEC as part of our IWK Dance Marathon fundraising. Organizers planned 2 movies (Parent Trap & Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) along with theatre snacks and beverages. Lots of fun was had...thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal for such an incredible cause!

This little guy attempted to get in for the movie...unfortunately he was turned away for his dress code and the fact that he was trying to get in with his own snacks.


Congratulations to Finn Hafting and Sam Cooper who were awarded the Lieutenent Governor's Education Medal. This award is given to Grade 11 students in recognition of strong academic performance and qualities of leadership and service in their school and community.




















Yesterday’s first annual THROW DOWN at BRCS showed our junior track throwers in good form - below is Owen Charlton, Grade 6 thrower.


Enjoy the outdoors – and check for ticks!

It’s a great time of year to enjoy the outdoors – physical activity, fresh air and time with family and friends is so important! With being outside more, we also need to be aware of ticks. These are small insects – sometimes as small as the period at the end of this sentence – that are found across Nova Scotia.


Tick checks help protect us from the germs that ticks can carry. Removing ticks as soon as possible can prevent or reduce the risk of infection. Follow these steps to help protect against ticks, especially in grassy, wooded or shrub covered areas:


  • Apply insect repellents containing DEET or Icaridin to exposed skin and clothes. Follow directions on the package carefully.
  • Wear light colored long sleeved shirts and pants, closed-toed shoes, and tuck shirts into pants and pant legs into socks.
  • Keep lawns mowed short.
  • Put playground equipment in sunny, dry places away from wooded areas, yard edges, and trees.


  • Check your whole body for ticks and, when possible, take a bath or shower within two hours of coming indoors. This makes it easier to find ticks and washes away loose ones.
  • If you find ticks, here’s how to remove them safely:

Carefully grasp the tick with tweezers as close to the skin as possible.

Gently and slowly pull the tick straight out. Do not jerk, twist or squeeze it.

Clean and disinfect the site with soap and water, rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.

Dispose of the tick in a sealed plastic bag and put in the garbage.

Do NOT burn, squeeze or coax a tick’s mouthparts from your skin using other methods.


Only the blacklegged tick can transmit the germ that causes Lyme disease, and only after being attached for at least 24 – 36 hours. One of the earliest and most common symptoms of Lyme disease is a rash that’s often shaped like a bull's-eye. The rash occurs on the same site as the bite. Other symptoms include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, joint pain and headaches. If you’ve been exploring outdoors, especially in wooded areas, forests, areas where tall grasses and or shrubs are present, or have found a tick on your body, and show these symptoms, see a healthcare provider.


To learn more about tick safety, visit or call your local Public Health office at 902-542-6310.
