Rest in peace, Annie. Firstly, congratulations to Grace de Souza who has achieved a confirmed place at Oxford University Worcester College to read geography. Grace was our head girl and completed her studies last year. Amongst much else, she performed major roles in our school shows.
We are all delighted for her. Alongside Grace, we have three students in year 13 who have secured conditional places at Oxford and Cambridge. We are confident they will get the grades they need to secure these offers. A further 35 students have received at least one offer from a Russell Group university which is fantastic! We would like to wish all the sixth form students every success in their journeys as they complete their mock examinations and begin to prepare for the summer.
As many parents will know, we introduced our students to the EPQ Extended Project Qualification last year, which is a good enhancement to A level studies and well received by universities. Our first set of results has been extremely encouraging.
Many congratulations to them! On the evening of Wednesday January 22 nd , we were treated to the first performance of the year from our year 10 drama students , who produced deeply thought-out responses to the Columbine massacres and the unfortunate fate of Breck Bednar. These are serious issues and the students approached them with a maturity which impressed our new drama leader Mrs Hodgkiss.
Well done to our year 10s for their fantastic performances — we look forward to seeing more as you progress through your GCSE. Our debaters rise to a considerable challenge The last week in January was a big one for our school debaters.

The new location of the Intercolonial Railway resulted in the commercial and business centre of Sackville being relocated from the mill district at Silver Lake to the current town centre, closer to the railway line. Sackville had been vying with nearby Amherst to be the junction point for the line to Cape Tormentine; local shipbuilder and industrialist entrepreneur Josiah Wood ensured that Sackville was chosen as the junction.
Macdonald 's administration in the ss saw various industries cluster along the Intercolonial Railway in Amherst and Sackville.
Sackville became home to two independent foundries; the Enterprise Foundry, and the Fawcett Foundry. Both produced stoves and related products with both businesses operating for more than a century. These competitors eventually merged and the Fawcett Foundry was closed and the foundry demolished in the s; this brownfield site at the corner of Main and King streets was purchased by Mount Allison University for campus expansion.
The remaining Enterprise-Fawcett Foundry was still operational and employed roughly 60 people near the railway station. It was one of the few remaining stove foundries in the world until it suffered a fire in January Sackville grew in importance as a railway junction after Canadian National Railways established a dedicated railcar ferry service at Cape Tormentine in The Sackville railway yard and station were constantly busy until the opening of publicly funded highways following World War II started a slow decline.
The abandonment of the Prince Edward Island Railway in saw the line to Cape Tormentine removed at the same time as the Trans-Canada Highway was being expanded to a 4-lane freeway. As the railway consolidated to a single mainline running through town, businesses left, including offices of Atlantic Wholesalers. Sackville is at a low elevation above sea level.
Sackville is surrounded by the Tantramar Marshes , once a tidal saltmarsh. The marshes are an important stopover for migrating birds. The marsh soil consists of silts deposited by centuries of tidal flooding. Drainage is poor and there are slow-moving meandering rivers, shallow lakes, bogs , and intertidal zones.
The earliest post road followed the route of the present day High Marsh Road. This highway forms one of the two main surface transportation links between the two provinces. The Mount Whatley Road runs between Mt. The Sackville railway station , still in active use with Via Rail , is designated a national historic place. The Sackville Memorial Hospital serves the region, as well as the Community Health Centre which houses several physicians, an optometrist, a dentist, and a pharmacy.
