CommCo 2017/18- The Key Committee for Iroquois Ridge’s Spectacular Events!

Iroquois Ridge is known for hosting some incredible events! From our annual scary movie
night, to the art battle in the street, and ending off with Big Bash as our grand finale.
Needless to say, this school definitely knows how to get its students engaged and excited
for a year round of thrilling events, but have you ever wondered just how Iroquois’ events
become the word on the street? The answer is simple, it's the ridge’s very own
Communications Council, better known by our fellow Trailblazers as, CommCo.
CommCo is one of the main reasons why events such as coffeehouse, assemblies
and concerts are so attentively taken care of and smoothly coordinated. Carrying the weight
of the school’s prime sound system and technology on your back isn’t always easy, but our
powerful CommCo team members are always up for the challenge.

Rick and Morty - The The Rickchurian Mortydate: TV Show Review

Well, Rick and Morty fans, season 3 has come to an end with the fantastic episode: The Rickchurian Mortydate (a play on words for the Manchurian Candidate). This season was bubbling with crude humour, interesting plot lines, and great characters. Luckily, the finale didn’t disappoint and it was one of the best episodes yet.
