Today is Earth Day, in celebration of this we have registered our school for Lights Out Canada. It is a national initiative for schools to take a stance towards climate change. All we have to do as a school is turn off as many lights as possible for the day. We know that some areas of the school have very few windows for lighting, but please reduce as much as possible (use only half the lights etc..) This is one day to take a stance so let’s do what we can.
Please go to the following link to complete the survey:
These surveys have to be completed by March 27th. We appreciate you time and efforts!!!

Eastern Health Coalition Supports RIA
*Random Island Academy would like to thank Eastern Health Coalition for their continued support and contribution to our Athletic Program. We have received another Grant in the amount of $500 to use towards athletic equipment.
Just a reminder to parents and guardians to avail of the recycling initiative at the school – it’s a great way to help fund any school associated costs that you need to pay. Remember to inform the depot when you get there that you are donating to Random Island Academy (green team), and don’t forget to take your slip. Beer bottles can be returned, but there is no “match” on them.
The Science Fair will be held on March 10th here at the school. It is opened to the public and grade 7 – 9 projects will be judged. Other Science Class work will be on display as well.

Four students from Random Island Academy competed at the Random Lions Speak-off at the Lions club in Elliott’s Cove last night. Lions Club members, judges, parents, and guests were entertained by speeches about the effects of social media on today’s youth, the validity of awards shows such as the Oscars and the Grammys, Internet addiction disorder, and the impact that last Fall’s shooting in Ottawa had on our country and its people. All four speeches were great and our students represented our school very well. In the end the judges awarded 1st place to Joanne Hart (Gr. 12), 2nd place to Melanie Reid (Gr. 12), 3rd place to Patrick Bowering (Gr. 11), and runner up to Taylor Martin (Gr. 10). Our students all gained valuable public speaking experience along with Plaques/medallions and cash prizes.
Random Island Academy would like to thank the Random Lions Club for their continued commitment to public speaking and for being such fantastic members of our school community. Your organization has long supported our school and its students and we are very grateful! We look forward to the Intermediate and elementary Speak-offs coming in the Spring!
To all our Teachers, Support staff, and Bus Drivers we would like to say…
