The Hospitality students are happy to announce that SOUPer Friday's are back and will begin this Friday, Sept 19th. Price remains at only a toonie - still a great value!  This week's choices are:  The "infamous" Cream of Bacon and Potato and Beef Noodle.  Come outside Room 187 at lunch.  Please be respectful and remember that service does not start until lunch starts.

Interested in the arts? Like food? Wanna get more involved? Come to SMAC! We organize workshops and art events. And we have snacks! We meet in room 182 every Thursday. See you there!

This year, back by popular demand, Students’ Council will be selling TAS Student Packages, which will include such things as a TAS Sport Pack, a school t-shirt, an SPC Card, an aluminum travel mug, several coupons totaling $12 for the October Hallowe'en Dance, Griffin wear, and the school yearbook, and a variety of other surprise items. TAS Student Packages will be available for $35.00 and can be purchased at lunches between September 3rd to September 25th. Some of the items in the TAS Student Packages are not available without Package purchase, and items purchased separately would cost nearly $80 (or more!) Budget ahead, and plan on getting your TAS Student Package as soon as possible!

Any students who are planning to attend University of Toronto who would like to be considered for the National Scholar's Program should see Mrs. Nash in Guidance before September 24th.

Study and Go Abroad Fairs will be held October 4 & 5 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  This is a great opportunity for students to meet with top-ranked universities and colleges from around the world to learn about certificate and diploma programs, and undergraduate and postgraduate degrees abroad.  There will be a Student Travel Zone, with organizations offering internships, volunteer programs, work abroad, and adventure and language travel.

The Loran Scholars awards recognize graduating students who show exemplary character, service and leadership.   Students must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents with a minimum average of 85%.  Candidates may be sponsored or unsponsored.  If you wish to be sponsored, you need to check out the online application by going to the link on the TAS guidance webpage and talk to Mrs. Nash in guidance.

The Ontario Universities' Fair will take place from September 19-21 from 10 to 5 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  This is a chance for you to meet professors, students and senior administrators from Ontario's universities, visit Ontario university exhibits and ask questions directly to representatives, and attend scheduled information sessions about Ontario universities.  For more information go the  TAS guidance webpage.

Are you in need of Community Hours? The Purple Onion Harvest Festival is looking for volunteers for Sunday Sept 21 at Millennium Park. Please sign up in guidance if you are interested.

Anyone interested in pickup up 5 Community Hours this Friday night as well as 5 community hours next Friday night, see Mr. Challice in the Co-op office as soon as possible.

Congratulations to the Junior Boys Hockey team who reeled off 3 consecutive wins yesterday at the St. Peter's Classic to win the championship. Goaltenders Drew Hutchison and Billy Leahy shared a 5 to 0 shutout in game 1 over IE Weldon. Leahy was rock solid, picking up a 3 to 2 overtime win over Norwood in game 2, while Hutchison earned game MVP honours in the championship game, a 3 to 1 victory over Haliburton. The Griffins combined good defensive play with potent offense at the other end. Jarod Mayhew, Charles Cowie and Braden Little led the attack with 2 goals and 1 assist each, while Connor Harnden was the most generous Griffin, picking up 4 helpers. If you check out the team picture, you can easily see why TAS also won the award for the team with the "best flow" in the tournament.
