Please be respectful of the March 1st deadline as to avoid disappointment. Your photo will not appear in the yearbook if you do not submit a photo on or before March 1st. Submissions to be sent to Ms. Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Discovery Centre is looking for a team of four to participate in its annual Brain War. There are currently 15 high schools registered for this event. Brain War is based on the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) areas of study, and including the Arts (STEAM) as a testing component, it’s an ambitious, challenging competition designed to crown the smartest team in Nova Scotia. It’s not just about smarts – it’s a six-hour, intellectual, emotional and creative marathon. This event is one of the best team-building experiences you’ll ever experience. It’s all about quick decision-making, working together and leadership. See Mrs. Swimm in guidance if you are interested in enrolling.
