    Hillcrest at the Oscars!

    Former Hillcrest alum Trent Correy showing off his Golden Globe and Oscar with "Frozen" director Chris Buck. Trent won the awards for his work on the Disney animated film, which won Best Animated Film for 2013.

    Trent graduated from Hillcrest in 2006 and entered Algonquin where he studied animation. He quickly gained experience, animating for various local animation projects before moving to Vancouver to work for Disney. Looks like a lot of dedication and hard work has paid off. Congratulations, Trent!

    Fast for Freedom 2014

    Impact Club organized their third annual 24 Hour Fast for Freedom and this year we held a school sleepover! Students fasted for 24 hours to stand in solidarity with the millions who go without food each day and to raise money for Impact's water project in Llujin, Ecuador. Those sleeping over broke the fast together the next morning at school. To date we have raised about $1400 towards our goal! Well done, Hillcrest!
