Our school has begun to prepare for the Season of Hope and Expectation, Advent. The Grade 4 class created stunning Advent wreaths made of beautiful cedars, candles, pine cones and kinikinik. The radiance upon the Grade 4 student faces spoke volumes on the impact of Mrs Durfeld’s annual Advent wreath making, had on her students. Kindergarten experienced their first field trip of the year, to the Okanagan Science centre. The excitement was apparent as they set off on their excursion. Their BIG rosy cheeks and smiles on their return were paramount.

Our week ends on a glorious sunny day. We give thanks to the Good Lord who continues to bless our students and staff. Our classrooms, hallways and playgrounds are filled with laughter, love and random acts of kindness. As Remembrance day approaches may it be a day of reflection for those who have gone before us. Lest we forget. God bless us all.

The sun shone on our beautiful Halloween parade this morning. The students’ costumes were amazing. We had dinosaurs, princesses, cowboys, football players etc. Imaginations and creative minds were abundant. The students and staff were excited to be able to participate in the annual event. What a memorable way to end the month of October and welcome November All Saints & All Souls month.

Volleyball began this week for grades 5, 6 and 7. It has been wonderful to hear the loud cheering and see the team’s camaraderie. Our inaugural Liturgical dance team also started practices after school, this week. Stay tuned as a Spring performance is in the making. The postponed sacraments of First Holy communion and Confirmation have begun to be celebrated at OLOV and St. James churches. May we keep these students in our prayers as they receive these blessed sacraments.
