Youth Council Opportunity:
The office of the Ombudsman is excited to announce we are accepting applications from youth ages 13-19 to form an Ombudsman youth council. This council will meet twice per year in person and periodically online in order to discuss issues that matter to them, their experiences with government and help us make improvements. This council will provide youth with an opportunity to share their perspectives as experts in their own lives. Youth from any background in any part of the province are encouraged to apply. Financial assistance for travel may be provided to youth where necessary. Should any youth have questions about the Ombudsman Youth Council they are welcome to contact us at 1-800-670-1111 or email@example.com
Horton In The News:
The 23 member East Kings girls U-15 soccer team that won silver at Provincials in Sydney earlier this month, was almost totally made up of Griffins. The team finished the season with a record of 17-6-1 and beat the Valley league champions, Upper County to advance to the finals. The gold-medal game was tied 2-2 and went to dot shots – a good result against Port Hawkesbury, a team that had gone undefeated in the tournament.
Another Horton student has been featured in Living the Dream. This week it is Matt Holmes, a grade 12 student who competed with the Nova Scotia U18 team at the Canada Cup in Calgary this past July. This experience, coupled with his leadership abilities and style, makes him a player that his coaches will be depending upon this season as playing an important role in helping to build a strong team.
Gr. 12 student Austin Smeltzer is no stranger to giant pumpkins as his father has been growing them in their backyard in New Minas for the past ten years and entering them in Windsor West Hants Pumpkin Weigh-off, finishing one year in fifth place. But this year his dad Bill’s pumpkin, the last one weighed, captured the top prize tipping the scales at 1,226 pounds (556 kilograms).
The Horton girls soccer team are the first Griffins to make it into the news this year with a win at the CK pre-season invitational tournament. They met NKEC in the finals and came out on top with 3-1. As well, a number of Horton players are featured in the accompanying photos.
Clubs and Activities:
