Hi guys! We're here to announce that we've started a Jewish Cultural Society here at Kent Place. Our mission is to create a space in our school community that is fully aware of the complexities pertaining to religious conflict and anti-semitism as they are contextualized in today’s political environment. Through education, personal experience, and allyship we hope to further illuminate the cultural diversity that exists at Kent Place by sparking conversation about the Jewish community.
Varsity soccer had a tough game on Tuesday against Union Catholic. At the half we were 2 goals down. We kept fighting and tied it up in the second half! Unfortunately, during the first half of overtime, there was an unlucky free kick at the top of the box that resulted in an impossible-to-save goal. At the end of the game, we felt really proud of ourselves for working hard till the end. It was an unfortunate loss. This Saturday, we play ALJ away. Wish us luck!
We won all of our matches this week!
