The First snowfall of the season brought delight and cheer. The younger students were thrilled to be out playing in the snow. It brings the anticipation of winter activities such as skiing, skating, snowboarding, and sledding.
While we celebrated this first, we too will celebrate a last. Sunday, November 21 is the last Sunday in this Liturgical year, the feast of “Christ the King”.

Our Remembrance Day acknowledgement today was hosted by the Grade 5 class, over the PA in the school office. 3 Grade 5 students were accompanied by 2 Grade 3 students, who represented all their school mates. The acknowledgment began with the sounds of a WW2 air siren horn, cranked by Ben Paul that bellowed throughout the school. The poem “In Flanders Field” was read by Eva, Abbie, Reuben. Ben and Brodie helped to introduce the event and readings. Music by Sarah McLaughlin “ I will remember you” was played and the recording of the “Last Post” then 1 minute of silence was shared. The acknowledgment was impactful and well presented. May you and yours reflect again tomorrow, the 11th month on the 11th day at the 11th hour what was lost, for the betterment of us all. Additionally in our prayers, were our thoughts for Mrs Monaghan and her family on their recent loss of Mrs. Monaghan’s father-in-law.
