"We knew how it felt to go to OFSAA last year," said PECI captain Damien Wadforth. "It was the first year our school ever went and we wanted to go back."

Grade 10 History Multimedia Presentations
As part of their study of WWII, Grade 10 history students in both Mrs. Koutroulides Venture and Academic classes, created multimedia presentations on various WWII topics. Students worked alone or in pairs and they shared their productions with the class. The creativity and professionalism of the productions is outstanding.
Here are some examples from both classes:
Bullying Awareness Workshop
||On Wednesday, Nov 16th, four students from PECI attended and helped create a board-wide dramatic workshop and performance for Bullying Awareness week. The four students who attended were Randy Chance, Emily Hanna, Anna Koning-Nguyen and Savannah Smith. Each of these students were partnered with one other student from the majority of high schools in the Hastings and Prince Edward School Board, worked with different drama teachers to create a Collective Creation around different themes and topics all related to Bullying.
The HPEDSB drama team performed two shows: one in front of five Quinte West elementary schools and one for the grade nine students of Trenton High. Both audiences were enthralled and applauded uproariously at the performance.
The performance went over so well that the ensemble has been invited to perform at the December 5th Board Meeting at the Board Office in Belleville. This performance was only one of several activities in support of Bullying Awareness Week at PECI and throughout HPEDSB.
|Grade 10 students in Mrs. Koutroulides' academic history class designed and created 3D models of WWII cenotaphs while reflecting on Canada's role in the war. Students used a variety of materials to create their models, but cake seemed to be a favourite. The concepts, symbols and execution of the project demonstrated the respect the students have for WWII veterans' contributions.
