We are your new advisory group! (From the left) Kit, Allegra, Chris, Charlie, Scott, Rachel, Alexi, and Celia, all welcome you to Halcyon! Stephanie Cooke is your new Advisory Group leader.

You will notice something cool about our advisory groups at Halcyon: they are 'vertically integrated' -- that means that for example, Celia, Charlie and Rachel are in Grade 9, while Scott, Alexi and Kit are in Grade 8 and Allegra and Chris are in Grade 7. Pretty cool!
