Thom Cheer Team Reaches Dizzying Heights

MAY 8, 2023 — In describing the evolution of the Thom Cheer Team, nothing short of stratospheric could apply!

The fledgling group was the brainchild of teacher Melanie Vollman, who started the team at Thom Collegiate in 2009 with a mere 10 untrained athletes. Navigating the arena of competition was a very difficult process and their first event in Moose Jaw did not produce noteworthy results. It did, however, provide an invaluable lesson about preparation and reaching the required skill level before stepping on a stage. This lesson led to a two-year hiatus from competition.

Campbell Muslim Student Association

MAY 4, 2023 — Campbell Collegiate’s Muslim Student Association (MSA) is active all year and has organized events such as fundraisers, potlucks, speakers and other community-building initiatives.

During Ramadan, this group was really busy. Tuesdays and Thursdays are dedicated to the MSA Speaker Series, where different members of the community come in to speak about a variety of topics, including volunteerism, community, time management and so much more. This speaker series has been well attended, often with around 100 students in attendance and are open to all Campbell students.
