Before joining the school newspaper, I already knew that the purpose of journalism is to inform. At TFS, through the platform of Limited Edition, students have been given the opportunity to use their voices to speak to their community.

Being editor of the school newspaper has taught me many things. Most of all, I have learned the difference a platform for student voice can make. Last year, during the 2018-2019 school year, half...

Less than a month ago, I wrote the draft for an article about COVID-19 and the precautions made in the short time since school closed on March 13. I had been updating it every couple of days, preparing it for publication in the school newspaper. However, I have decided not to publish it.

As I grew older and came to the Senior School, I began to slice away at the activities in which I chose to involve myself, favouring artistic endeavours and leadership positions over athletic or STEM pursuits.

          On December 16th, the TFS Drama Club was proud to feature three productions of the play Sisters by Wendy Lill. The production was directed by TFS Principal Mr. Gaudet and the score, partly inspired by the Honour Song of the Mi’kmaq, was composed by Level V student Jason C., who subsequently directed a band of four extraordinary musicians: Ms. Oliver and Level Vs Beatrice C., Nathalie J., and Aidan T..

Au cours du mois de décembre nous nous sommes concentrés sur notre audit d'énergie et d'ordures. Cet événement fait partie de notre candidature pour eco-school et on est très fier de notre travail, même s'il nous a pris deux essais. Votre participation a été excellente et nos résultats montrent du progrès, surtout concernant le volume de nos ordures. On fait ces audits depuis près de dix ans et jamais on a vu si peu d'ordures....

TFS’s annual fashion show, named Once Brand New this year, took place on November 15, 2019. Since September, I’ve interviewed members of TFS’s Fashion Show team in an effort to highlight the importance of the event and its role in fabricating our school community.

One of three Level V Heads of Fashion Show, Emilie A, explains the process of designing the show, from April to November.

“It took us eight months, almost, so it’s a p...

The hashtag #worldmentalhealthday was trending on Twitter on October 10th, demonstrating the improvements being made in an effort to destigmatize discussions about mental health and mental illness.

Last year, every new edition of TFS’ Limited Edition included an article discussing wellness and/or mental health. From publishing articles about Seasonal Affective Disorder to spreading awareness on phobias and eating disorders, Lim...
