A HUGE congratulations goes to Jennifer Hart for winning the Lion’s Regional Speak-Off last Friday in Port Rexton. Jennifer now gets the opportunity to go to the Provincial competition this Saturday in Gander. It is the first time a speaker from Random Island has earned the chance to go to Provincials…we are very proud of her!
Mr. Curt Blackmore wrote this letter to the Packet and it expresses how we all feel about this fabulous school community!
Please allow me space in your publication to, once again, offer sincere acknowledgement and thanks to the parent community and Student Council of Random Island Academy. February 12th-18th was designated as both “Teacher Appreciation Week” and “Education Week” in our province. While the weather did not exactly cooperate, the parent and student bodies of our little school nonetheless planned a tremendous week. The Home and School Association for Random Island Academy once again showed appreciation to our teachers and support staff as each day last week parents provided trays of snacks and cookies for the staff room culminating with a hot turkey dinner provided for staff this past Friday. In my short tenure as Principal of Random Island Academy, I can easily attest to the commitment and support of our Home and School Association. It has been influential in many initiatives at our school including the purchase of new blinds for all of the classrooms, helping to fund a much needed kitchen renovation, and the future financial support of acoustic sound treatment for the school’s gymnasium. In addition, the Student Council of our school planned many themed and participatory events throughout the week with the big event being an all-day outside winter carnival. The leadership, participation, and camaraderie showed by our student body during this event was certainly noteworthy and something to be congratulated. To say the least, we appreciate the efforts put forth by these two groups within our learning community. In order for a small, rural school such as ours to thrive, I believe it is important that all the stakeholders in the learning community pull on the same oar. It is through healthy partnerships amongst all the stakeholders that this becomes possible. I believe the care and thoughtfulness expressed by our parents and students last week speaks to strong partnerships at Random Island Academy – partnerships built on the foundation of mutual respect of which I am very proud and thankful.

The Senior Boys Basketball team will be heading to Provincials at St. Mary’s (Dunne Memorial Academy) next week after capturing the Regional Banner with a win over St. Mark’s. The Crusaders defeated the Lions to capture the SSNL Avalon West ‘A’ Boys Basketball Regional title. We would like to thank Mr. Glen O’Driscoll and the boys from St. Mark’s for coming up and competing! The boys have had a pretty good season thus far as they have previously captured the tier III banner at the Cougar Classic in Clarenville early this winter. We look forward to seeing them represent us at the Provincials next week. Go Crusaders!!!
