This week the JV boys’ basketball team hada game on Thursday November 6, at 6 o’clock. They will be playing Blackville. However, they play them next week as well on Wednesday, November 12 and the Sackville team in Bathurst.

The girls hockey team took on Shippagan on Wednesday, December 5th. They took a hard 12-0 loss but their goalie, Paula, stood on her head the whole game and tried her hardest.

Make sure you arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment as there is some paperwork that needs filling out, it also gives you time to put on the gown for the pictures. When you arrive at your appointment make sure that you pay before the session. Also be sure to dress nice and put on your best smile.
