Writing project publishes books written by Nova Scotia children HALIFAX Children in Nova Scotia who have a flair for creative writing are getting their works into print at an early age.

Campus Corner By CAROLYN STERENBERG WINSTON CHURCHILL The a.m. bell Aug. 24 signalled the start of a new school term. The first day was something I'll never forget. Mass confu- Registration lasted for a few hours and the entire stu- dent spent the afternoon recuperating from that trau- matic experience. On the second classes got started and the freshmen and new students met their teachers. Lockers were issued and fees paid. By the third classes had begun to fall into a regular rou- tine. The freshmen started to lose that confused and bewild- ered look which plagued them for the first couple of days. Frosh Days are just around the corner so the newcomers can prepare themselves for barrels of fun and laughter. The WCHS social activities got off to a good start with a dance last Friday night. Money from Vancouver played and the turn-out was really quite good. The new students' council looks good this year with Randy Rae as top Carol Moore second in command as senior class Fawn McLaughlin and Neil Kelly as sophomore and freshmen class presidents. Everyone is starting to feel the school spirit corning out as we wait in anticipation for the first football scheduled for September 18 against Cath- olic Central. The Young Voyageurs from Lethbridge went to Trois-Riv- Que. this summer. Three days were spent in Ottawa and the remaining time in private homes in Trois-Rivieres and surrounding district. Trips were made to Montreal and Quebec City. A group of 20 Young Voya- geurs from Spring were guests in Lethbridge for eight days in July. While they were they toured such places as the Japanese Gar Waterton Park and the Logan Pass. The year looks good and I would like to say good luck to the students in their first year of high school and to all those in their final year. f LEISTER'S COMING EVENTS White Heather Concert Sept. 18th Registered Music Teachers Association Presents DIANNE SOPRANO and PIANIST.JAMIE SYRE Sept. 21st Allied Arts presents MARK Pianist Sept. 28th U of L Students Union presents TOM NORTHCOTT in Concert with Richard Harrow Sept. 6th Fi rehouse Theatre Sept. 4th LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD.
