Welcome Back

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year and to the “House of OrAnge!”  One of the most frequently asked questions from new Abe students is, “Why Orange?  Are we a colour or a fruit?” 

OrAnge is an attitude – a state of mind! 

 

The blend of red and yellow, orange is a mixture of the energy associated with red and the happiness associated with yellow.  Orange is associated with meanings of joy, warmth, heat, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, freedom, expression, and fascination.  Orange promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared.  Colour theory studies show the colour orange can create physical effects such as increased hunger, heightened sense of activity, increased oxygen supply to the brain, increased contentment, and enhanced assurance.  Orange is also said to help aid decision making, and enhances happiness, confidence, and understanding. 

Abe students embody all these positive characteristics of the colour and what it represents.  We are OrAnge!   Whether it is Academics, Athletics, the Advocate, DebAte Club, the Fine & Performing Arts, GSA, or the many social Action initiatives our students embrace, the OrAnge spirit is reflected in all we do and there is something for everyone at Abe!  As we commence a new school year, I encourage you to find your niche and get involved.  Believe it or not, three years go by in the blink of an eye and your high school experience is, in large part, what you make of it!  If you don’t find your place of belonging right away, please talk to us.  We’d love to help you make connections with like minded peers through clubs, committees or sport and if you’re interested in starting something new, we’d love to hear that too! 

I look forward to meeting you or reconnecting and am excited about the year ahead.  It’s going to be Abe Awesome! 

Together, we put the “heart” in Aberhart!
