Sr. Boys' Soccer Win COSSA

"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."

Volleyball Silver Medal

JrBoysSilver2011 The PECI Panther Junior Boys Volleyball team returned home with the silver medal following the November 8th Bay of Quinte Championships held at Centre Hastings SS.  Team members Tye Eaton, Riley Greer, Pat MacPherson, Jordan Strachan, Andrew Dayton, Graysen St.Pierre, Noah Graham-Stevens, Mitchell Reid, Ryan Jones, Jesse Doornbos, David Prinzen, Riley Bovay played their best volleyball of the season and finished first in their pool,  and beat Bayside SS in the semifinals before facing Marc Garneau for the gold.  After two tight matches (25-22 and 26-24) the boys found themselves on the short side of the scoreboard for the first time in the day. The team received their silver medals, and more importantly, several comments on their hard work and sportsmanship. Special thanks to assistant coach Adam Miller for being a positive influence on the boys.

The team and PECI will host the COSSA championships on Wednesday November 16th. Come on out for some great volleyball action.   

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

drama_team 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.

Cenotaph Models

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.

"The reason our monument is represention by a flower pot is because after the war our country had joined together.  Even though we are an independent country, it shows that underneath it all, we are all joined at the roots." - Lindsey Hegadorn and Bronwyn Taylor

"It brought the creativity out of us and we realized the challenge of representing everything Canada did" - Ryan Kerr

"I chose to represent the Liberation of the Netherlands because my grandmother was there as a young child" - Holly Aman

PECI Dual Credit Marketing Course

On Tuesday November 29th, 55 PECI marketing students travelled to Loyalist College to participate in an online business simulation. Students were challenged to create and run a computer company including product development, advertising, and sales in New York, Paris, Toronto and Paris. At the end of each quarter, students were given immediate live feedback on their decisions which helped them plan their strategy for the next quarter. The simulation was just one part of a much larger dual credit program offered by the PECI Business department and Loyalist College. Students who took the grade 11 marketing course not only had the opportunity to learn from a Loyalist business professor who travelled to PECI 2 days a week, but they could also earn a first year college marketing credit. Pictured is a group photo taken after the simulation was completed, and also the winning group consisting of Shannon Spencer, Emily Griffin, Bethany Stevens, Carley Miller. dual_credit

MADD Canada Marketing

Thanks to Countylive.ca for highlighting the efforts of our marketing classes:

"MADD Quinte is delighted students at Prince Edward Collegiate have a plan when it comes to changing attitudes and behaviours toward drinking and driving. Rob Garden’s marketing classes put newly learned skills into practice as they created awareness campaigns for MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). The goal – to be reached with a presentation, printed advertisements, social media and a video – was to make a difference. Their efforts culminated in a morning of presentations for peers and judges from MADD, Loyalist College and the Health Unit."
