The Harbour View Choral Ensemble and Chazz Chior
​The Harbour View Choral Ensemble and Chazz had a wonderfully-successful weekend of song!
 
They performed Friday night at Uptown Sparkles, singing traditional Christmas Carols in Kings Square where a large crowd gathered to enjoy their beautiful sounds. Then, on Saturday night, they sang at the 25th annual Christmas Gala by SJ Chorale, along with several other choirs and bands. The audience chuckled, thoroughly enjoying the passing of the Kleenex box during one song, and Chazz held the crowd mesmerized with their music. Sunday, Chazz performed beautifully again at Make a Joyful Noise II.
 
Thank you, singers and Mr. Lane, for raising spirits with song!

It Takes a Village Series – Consent and Risky Behaviour in the era of Social Media and Electronic Devices
 
Another evening organized by the Parent School Support Committes of the four Saint John Education Centre High Schools will take place on Thursday, October 6 at SJHS beginning at 6:30pm.  Information follows – and a brochure is attached.  Village_Dec2018_final.pdf 
 
As parents and guardians - are you concerned about what is happening with your teen and their social media? Or are we even aware of what is being posted and shared and seen?
 
We know that teens’ and tweens’ brains are still developing throughout high school and middle school and that these students often lack impulse control and the ability to understand the long-term consequences of decisions made in moments of happiness, anger, and frustration. With over 94% of students on line today, we need to be concerned with what they are seeing, sharing and posting to their friends and the online world.
 
The committee of “It Yakes a Village” is pleased to offer another speaker series.
 It takes a village to raise a teen: Consent and Risky Behaviors: An informative presentation for parents of youth in the era of social media and electronic devices. 
 
This FREE informative presentation is designed for parents/guardians of youth in the era of social media and electronic devices. Please feel free to share this event with friends, family, co-workers
