iPhone 7 Overview

It’s that time of year again. Students go back to their busy schedules, the leaves start to change colour, and of course a new iPhone comes out.

OOTW - October 3 - Pink Week

The month of October has begun. Here at the Ridge, October doesn't only mean turkey and cool costumes. If you didn’t already know, Iroquois is a huge supporter of Breast Cancer awareness month. All the students and staff come together on October 6th to watch football and wear pink. Our annual Pink game is my all time fave Ridge event that isn’t a dance. Not only does Pink day have a great sense of community but it has a great sense of style too. Here are five outfits that I thought kicked just as much butt as the junior football team.

OOTW - September 26 - Jean Week

Fall is upon us, and with fall comes fall fashion - one of my personal favorite fashion seasons of the year. This year, Ridge Report’s new Outfits Of The Week column will update you on Trailblazer trends and what Iroquois students are rocking today. Mia Semeniuk (my trusty photographer) and I roamed the Ridge and found six Trailblazers that we want to applaud for truly slaying the fashion game this week.

Getting Involved at the Ridge

If you were at Club Day a couple weeks ago, you’ve probably noticed that the lunch and after school hours here at Iroquois Ridge are jam packed with clubs, bands, and teams. From Interact to physics club to the mock trial team, there are a lot of wacky but wonderful activities going on. The sheer number of choices can be overwhelming, so keep on reading if you want to get involved but are unsure of where to start!

Arts Council Executive Interview

The Ridge has a number of great examples of student leadership. You’ve probably heard of StudCo, Athletics Council, and CommCo, for example. Now, a new council is becoming established in the school- the Arts Council. Its executive members met with Ridge Report in June to present themselves to the student body.

SHAD McMaster 2016

I've heard SHAD described in many ways. "Month-long program that teaches science and business". "Summer camp for bright students across Canada". "A taste of university life". While those basic definitions have a certain degree of accuracy, each one misses the core of what the program really is. SHAD is all of those definitions combined, and so much more.
