From the Desk of Bjorn Kinding, Headmaster       Janaury 27, 2011

Greetings from the Staff of College Harrington du Canada,

Old Man Winter is visiting the Oka Campus.  Monday morning the thermometer was reading, -28 Celsius (-19 degrees Fahrenheit) and Wednesday morning the weather station reported a low of -31C. Although local students are use to very cold winters, these temperatures are dipping well below the normal for this time of year, forcing everyone to stay indoors.

Staying indoors is what everyone prefers anyway. This week is the exam week for all high school students, and they are all utilizing all their free time to study and review. The teachers are busy tutoring and explaining the need for proper nutrition and adequate study technique, and also making time to give the brain a rest. The hockey games and practices provide welcome and needed change. A balanced lifestyle is the key to success, especially, during exam week.

During school hours, the hallways are deserted, but the classrooms are filled with energy, as our students are concentrating and writing their exams. I am with impressed with the dedication and the commitment the students show, and our teachers have created a distraction-free environment, so everything is set for a good performance. I’m already looking forward to seeing good results.

In the coaches’ office, the thinking caps are on, as well, because the evaluation of each player’s hockey development is also due. I’m sure six months of focused training – coached and guided by Coach Daoust, Lecompte, Bouchard, Momesso, Valliere, Dubé, and all the other coaches – have led to some remarkable improvements.

To celebrate work well done (and that the exam week is finished), the students and staff will enjoy a fieldtrip to Mont Blanc Ski Resort and a day full of skiing. Please make sure that your son/daughter has registered!

Keep up the good work!
