Smile week is here! It's January, it's gloomy, and hey exams are just around the corner...so let's smile for a bit and take a break from the stress! We start Smile week with an "R U A OK" challenge..that's right..it's a Random Unsolicited ACT of Kindness challenge for all of the grades! Which grade can show the most kindness? We will be tallying the score all week in the main hall. Hold a door for someone? Take a selfie of you holding the door and bring it to the table in the main at lunch! Pick up some garbage? Take a selfie and bring that too.... pay a compliment? Screenshot that and show us. When you bring your selfies or screenshots of your random act of kindness, we will give you a sweet treat and enter you into a draw to win some sweet school swag! This is a week-long challenge so don't wait! Do it today! Let's see which grade can show the most kindness. Still not smiling? That's okay!

On Saturday Nantyr's Wrestling team was at Bear Creek to battle some of the best teams in our region as well as teams from Montreal, New Brunswick, Sault Saint Marie and the United States. With over 400 wrestlers, there was some very tough competition and the team from Nantyr represented us well. Kyle was up against some very tough opponents but was unable to break into the top 5. Isaiah was a dominant force and finished fourth. Connor fought hard all day and earned himself a bronze medal. Austin wrestled amazing only losing to last year's national champion to earn a silver medal. All were great on and off the mat and represented their school well. Coach Henderson could not be more proud of each of them Thanks.
