This Monday and Tuesday (May 28th and 29th)  Iroquois Ridge High School will be participating in the provincial Student Vote. This program is designed to measure the opinions of future generations of voters, and the results are tallied throughout the province and released to the media after general polling. Earlier this month, on the 15th of May, candidates from both of the ridings that Iroquois Ridge represents (from Oakville and Oakville North Burlington) came into our school to address the student body directly about their platforms and to encourage students to come out and vote.

CommCo 2017/18- The Key Committee for Iroquois Ridge’s Spectacular Events!

Iroquois Ridge is known for hosting some incredible events! From our annual scary movie
night, to the art battle in the street, and ending off with Big Bash as our grand finale.
Needless to say, this school definitely knows how to get its students engaged and excited
for a year round of thrilling events, but have you ever wondered just how Iroquois’ events
become the word on the street? The answer is simple, it's the ridge’s very own
Communications Council, better known by our fellow Trailblazers as, CommCo.
CommCo is one of the main reasons why events such as coffeehouse, assemblies
and concerts are so attentively taken care of and smoothly coordinated. Carrying the weight
of the school’s prime sound system and technology on your back isn’t always easy, but our
powerful CommCo team members are always up for the challenge.
