Noah Amyot is excited to be a Grade 8 student at Fort St. James Secondary School.

“I love this school,” Amyot said. It’s so different than elementary school. You have to pay attention more and work really hard.”

But Amyot also enjoys the freedom the school offers him as well.

“It’s so nice to be able to spend lunch time visiting my grandma down the road or shooting some hoops in the gym. It’s great to have that free time,” he says with a warm glowing smile.

And Amyot is looking forward to his foods class next semester.

“I’m a really bad cook so I’m really excited about that class,” Amyot said.

School principal, Craig Houghton says that Amyot is respectful, a hard worker, is dedicated to his sports and studies and is always eager to help others.

Amyot, originally from Houston, lived in New Zealand for two years before coming to Fort St. James.

“It was amazing there. The water, the beauty and the people, I loved it.”

But, Amyot is happy to call Fort St. James home.

He enjoys playing sports at school including basketball and soccer and at home he loves getting together with friends to play road hockey.

“I like everything about it here. There’s great fishing and everyone know everyone.”
