·         Yesterday the senior boys soccer team played a tough game against Loyola.  Despite some solid confident play in the end they gave up 3 goals losing 3-0.  Special mention goes out to Jay McNeill for some great defensive plays and Sepehr Yousef for his fantastic work in net.


·         This semester grade 9 science students participated in the National WHERE Contest through Mining Matters by completing research projects on everyday objects.  OT is being recognized for the many quality submissions entered into the contest and would like to congratulate French Immersion students Katie Medd and Celeste Nantel for being Ontario Regional Award recipients.  Celeste Nantel went on to win the National award for Best Research.  Felicitation!


·         As part of your entrance pass to Relay, every team needs to raise the minimum of $1000 so that means $145 per person for teams of 7, $125 for teams of 8, $111 for teams of 9 and $100 for teams of 10 and above.  To successfully ensure that everyone has the opportunity to hand in their pledge forms, bank days will be running from the May 11th to the 26th.  So remember to bring your own pledge forms down on these days.  Speak to your team captains if you have any questions  regarding bank days.


·         Do you want to see some of your favourite teachers with clean, shiney faces?  If you do, on Wednesday May 13th at Springfest  Relay for Life will be shaving our teachers beards.  Only under the condition that we raise a minimum of $70.00 per teacher.


·         Yesterday our varsity girls soccer team hosted the Hawks of Loyola.  The Devils could not match the Hawks intensity and lost a tough game 4-0.  The teams next action is Friday when they will host the 27th Annual  Halton Cup at Shell Park.


·         Any students that have purchased tickets to the Music Departments Spring Concert that have not received their tickets can see Mr Clarke in the music room to pick them up today.


·         Over 8 million people worldwide have been affected by the Nepal earthquake which has resulted in thousands of deaths with many more injured and without homes.  Today during period 3 and 4 the OTHS clubs will be selling food, running activities with a banner to sign for those who donate.  We hope you will show your support for the people of Nepal by donating to this cause.
