Guest Speaker - Christopher Conley: Avoidance Based Coping


Road Safety Even More Important in Winter

It is always dangerous to drop off and pick up students at the corner of Kidd Ave. and Boulton St. as well as in the "No Stopping" zone in front of the high school, It is even more dangerous at this time of year. We have had a number of near misses where students and GSS neighbours have come close to being hit by cars and trucks. It becomes very congested as parents drop off and pick up students. The front of the school is not designed for this purpose.
There are safer drop off and pick up areas at the back of the school and we encourage you to use these or to drop off and pick up a block away and have the students enjoy some fresh air and exercise as they walk up the block to school.
Please help us to keep everyone safe and to be good neighbours. Avoid the front of the school as drop off and pick up areas.
Thank you very much.

Grimsby Secondary School Puts Community Needs Front and Centre

For 20 years the staff and students of Grimsby Secondary School have celebrated their partnership with the Grimsby Benevolent Fund (GBF) during the holiday season by collecting food and gifts for families in the Grimsby community. Each homeroom has the opportunity to choose an anonymous family profile and bring in food and gifts to share so that everyone will enjoy a wonderful holiday season. 

On Friday, December 2nd, Students Aware, Student Council and Eagles Mentorship hosted an assembly for staff and students to learn about the work of GBF and to think about volunteerism. Stacy Elia, the Executive Director of GFB (and GSS graduate), spoke to the students about GBF, the needs in the Grimsby community and the “power of one”. We each can make a difference, one person at a time.
There were also presentations from Miles Lambert and Neha Gulati kicking-off the Adopt-A-Family project. Then Tori Waite read the following poem that she wrote about the importance of volunteering. She pointed out the benefits to everyone of volunteering and the importance of completing your forty hours of community service early in high school instead of leaving it to Grade 12 when there are many other stressors and deadlines. 

Following the assembly, the Eagles Mentors worked with their Grade 9 groups  to explore ways that they could each individually give back to the community this month. In their mentorship groups they each wrote their individual commitment to giving to the community and posted it on the Promise Wall in the cafeteria.

Canada Wide Science Fair

This past week two of our GSS Eagles were part of Team Niagara, travelled to Montreal and spent the week, all expenses paid, at the Canada Wide Science Fair. They were fortunate enough to hear Chris Hadfield speak and I'm sure they can tell you about many other excellent adventures during this well-earned and valuable experience. Science Fair requires many hours of work and committment and both of these students worked tirelessly on their projects, allowing them to reach the National level. We want to congratulate Lucas on receiving the Clinical Chemistry Award, the SM Blair Foundation Award, the Manning Achievement Award, and Lucas also received the GOLD MEDAL in the senior division.
