On Tuesday, some of the students at CBRH travelled to C.C. Loughlin Elementary School to read to the classes as a part of the Rotary and the winter carnival.

The students greatly enjoyed getting involved with the younger students and encouraging the importance of reading.

Reading is a rewarding and enjoyable activity that more kids should continue to do throughout their lives.

Tonight will a very exciting night for Corner Brook Regional High School.

The school will be hosting the annual Rockathon tonight from 7 p.m. until 7 the next morning.

Rockathon consists of numerous teams who all participate in an activity-filled night, but each team must make sure that at least one member of their team is rocking on a chair at all times.

Half of the proceeds will be donated to the SPCA, while the other half is donated to a charity of the team’s choice.

Only three weeks following Rockathon will be our first-ever Danceathon. Danceathon is a new event occurring within Canadian schools where all proceeds go towards the Children’s Wish Foundation.

Danceathon promises to be an enjoyable night of various styles of dancing and exciting activities.

Claire Andrews and Matthew English capably represented our school at the Rotary Adventures in Citizenship Speakoff last week at the Glynmill Inn.

 The winner has not yet been selected, so all the best to these students.

Random fact of the week: According to a study from Yale University, three-quarters of students who are poor readers in third grade will remain poor readers in high school.

On Friday, Feb. 14, the students of CBRH and the students of all schools in Corner Brook were granted their ultimate wish — they received a snow day.

On all of the days for a snow day to fall on it was report card day here at CBRH. Students had one more weekend of freedom before having to reveal their marks to their parents and in some cases, suffer the consequences of not studying.

Love swept through the air at Corner Brook Regional High School as the student body has just celebrated yet another Valentine’s Day.

Due to the closure of school on Friday, all valentines events were pushed to Monday. A week prior to Valentine’s Day, many students had been purchasing carnations and chocolates to send to a friend or special someone.

On Monday, the student council visited each home room, delivering each of these flowers and chocolates to the designated students. In addition, a valentines photo booth was set up in the west entrance of the school during lunchtime.

During that time, students were able to dress up in silly clothing with their friends to take a photograph. Thanks to everyone who took part in this magical day.

Students of CBRH celebrated the Olympic spirit with Team Canada Spirit Day.

Students walked the halls dressed in red and white, to celebrate Canada’s performances at the Sochi 2014 Olympics.

Random fact of the week: First place winners in the 1900 Paris Olympics received paintings instead of gold medals because they were considered to be more valuable.
