Ignition is a 12-hour student leadership lock-in retreat hosted by the Queen’s College Foundation and The Centre for Further Education (C.F.E), for students in Grades 10-12. This event, will be a special kick-off event for the Spring semester 2017. The theme for this leadership retreat is ‘Together Towards Tomorrow’, and it promises to be filled with dynamic leadership workshops, team-building activities and keynote speakers. Throughout the event, students will also be entertained by local artists and performers, and at the conclusion, they will be able to identify leadership values and enhance their ability to create positive change.
Our goal is to bring students together, provide talks that are idea-focused, on leadership, which will help foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and also, provoke conversations that matter. Ignition 2017 is scheduled for Friday, January 6, 2017– Saturday, January 7, 2017 and will be held in The Geoffrey Brown Auditorium, Queen’s College campus.

IN MEMORY OF MRS. JOYELLE MCINTOSH
On the eve of first anniversary of the tragic death of beloved Queen’s College teacher, Mrs. Joyelle McIntosh, a special tribute was held at the site of the incident, at the junction of Parkgate Road and Village Road. The brief and moving service was organized by colleagues in the Foundation Years and Primary Years sections and was attended by present and former staff members, and members of Administration. Also present, was Mrs. Joycelyn Szasz, one of Joyelle’s sisters, who spoke on behalf of the family. Dr. Reginald Eldon, representing the Board of Governors, said that “Yesterday, we wanted people to know that crime does not pay; that crime causes prolonged suffering, that the taking of this woman’s life was and still is a tragedy and that we stand with many families who are mourning and feeling powerless in the country right now.”
On Friday, November 11, 2016 students and staff wore Peace Begins with Me T-shirts in a continued call to end the violence in our country.
