CEC's annual Terry Fox event was a huge success on Sept. 27 with hundreds of students participating in activities to raise money for a cure.
The event raised a total of $2,877.70 and was organized by the leadership class and involved activities such as tug-of-war, a dodgeball tournament, and a slip n slide.
The first dance of the school year also took place Sept. 26 with a neon theme. With blacklights and glowsticks, the dance was a bright night for all.
Cobequid Educational Centre has begun issuing parking passes to students and staff. The parking pass is for identification purposes. A nominal $5 fee for the year will be charged for each pass.
The fee contributes to, but not covers, the costs of parking lot maintenance, signage and security. This new policy will allow for improved monitoring of designated stadium parking areas, as well as those surrounding the school. Students can pick up an application from the main office.

The girls varsity soccer team plays Thursday, Oct. 4, against Dr. J.H. Gillis, also at CEC, at 4:30 p.m.
Math League will begin today at 8 a.m. in Room 20. All returning and new members are welcome. For students just looking for a quiet place to work on mathematics and receive help from peers, the Cougar Cafe will be open every Monday after school for this purpose.
Students looking for a more creative outlet also have a new opportunity this year - CEC's new Creative Writing Club will meet every Monday at lunch in Room 38. All are welcome.
For students with a passion for music, the CEC Choir is still accepting new members. Choir practices are every Tuesday and Thursday after school. So if you love to sing or just want to try something new it is definitely worth a try, especially for people interested in taking part in this year's musical - Shrek!
