Senior Boys Have Good Showing At SSNL A Boys Basketball Provincials

Random Island Academy had a good showing at the SSNL A Boys Basketball Provincials in Lawn / St. Lawrence last weekend.  They opened the tournament with a tough loss to the eventual champions, HNMA Mustangs (80 – 51).  They bounced back with a win over King Academy (65 – 63) but then lost a tough game to Hampton (68-44)  in a game that determined a playoff birth.   The boys played hard all weekend but fell a little short.  They had a great time at the tournament, especially at the banquet and skills competition.  Naasson Lambert, the teams only senior, was awarded the Individual Sportsmanship medal for the team.  A big thank you goes out to Mr Mulroooney and Mr Cook for coaching the team and getting the boys to this tournament.   We would also like to thank Michelle Wozniczko and Mac & Wendy Martin for travelling with the team.  We would also like to thank St. Lawerence Academy, Holy Name Of Mary Academy, and their entire school communities for all their work in hosting this Provincial tournament; two fantastic hosts and two fantastic schools!



Drama Performance Moved To Tuesday Night

The Random Island Academy Drama Troupe’s performance of ‘Spindrift Swirl’ has been moved to Tuesday night at 7:00 due to weather.  Admission is still $5 and there will be a bake sale following the performance.  This year’s play is more of a drama written by Mr. Matthew Cook and it contains mature content that is not suitable for younger students.  We are also due to perform at the EEC at 4:30 on Wednesday afternoon (same schedule as previously posted).

Senior Drama

The Random Island Academy Drama Troupe will be performing at the Vista Regional Drama Festival on Wednesday, March 14th.   RIA performs at 4:30 that afternoon (see schedule attached).  We will also be performing this coming Monday (March 12th)  at our school at 7:00 for those who can’t make it Wednesday.  Admission will be $5 and we will also be having a bake sale afterwards.  All proceeds go to our Senior Drama Troupe to help us cover the costs involved with developing and putting off our play!  Please come out and support us!!!

Senior Boys Basketball Regional Win

A big congratulations goes out to our Senior Boys Basketball team who defeated St. Marks 57-30 on Monday to win the SSNL Boys ‘A’ Basketball Qualifier.  This means RIA gets to represent our region at the Provincial tournament in St. Lawernce/ Lawn in two weeks time.  St. Marks played a great game and were great hosts!  Thanks also go out to Mr. Cook & Mr. Mulrooney for coaching and taking the boys to the Regional.  Good luck at Provincials guys!!!

Arts Smarts

We were very pleased to begin our Arts smarts program last week with Mr. Rory Lambert!  Rory came to our school, got to know our students, and helped us explore various elements of Newfoundland Drama.  This was the first week and the first phase of the program as Rory will return after Easter and we will begin phase 2.  Students will rehearse their scripts and at the end of the week, we will present a free night of Newfoundland drama to our community!  Our students were quite excited about this program and had a fantastic week!!!  We thank the NL Arts Council very much for this Art Smarts grant and we know it will benefit our students greatly!!!


Random Lions Speak Out

Congratulations to Jennifer Hart and Kayla Watton on their fantastic speeches presented at the Random Lions Speak Out last Wednesday.  Jennifer earned first place with her speech examining how we deal with stress; Kayla was runner-up as she explored the concept of vulnerability in our lives.  Both ladies presented compelling arguments that made for a very difficult judges decision.  RIA is very proud of you both!!!
