Hillside School

Current News

On Wednesday January 21st, Hillside's Varsity hockey team played host to Cardigan Mountain School, a fellow junior boarding school and strong hockey competitor. The visitors were eager to avenge last year's defeat, but Ryan Lovett put Hillside on the board first, and both teams continued to battle hard throughout the rest of the period. The game went back and forth with some strong offensive forays and tough D, but in the end, Hillside's additional goals from Patrick Robles (1) and Andranik Armstrong (2), plus strong goaltending from Carson McKinnon, led to a 4-1 victory.

Students interested in how government works and how legislation is developed and approved can now participate in the process, as Hillside has created a team that will attend a Model Congress program at Packer Collegiate Institute in New York. A committee, can create a legislative proposal and then present it before a group of peers at Packer in May, where the proposed bill is discussed, debated and ultimately voted on, with select proposals moving out of committee and to a vote before the entire student-run Congress. Proposals that the Hillside teams are considering include transit programs, a drive to eliminate pennies, gun control, and changing school summer breaks.‚Äč
The Tracy Gym rocked throughout the weekend of December 12-13, as Hillside celebrated the 25th Anniversary of its Holiday Basketball Tournament. The Varsity and JV both entered teams in four-team fields and there were several tributes to the 25th anniversary of the tournament, including founder Brian Pare throwing the ceremonial tip-off in the Varsity Championship game. The Hillside Varsity defeated St. John's handily in the first round, then roared back from a 24-point second-half deficit to edge rival Rectory and their three players 6'7" and above by a 61-57 score. The overflowing crowd in Tracy Gym, including many Hillside alumni, stuck with the Bulldogs even when they were way down, and the players used three-point shooting and defense as catalysts for one of the biggest comebacks in the program's long history.
